Housing means more than simply putting roofs over heads, as employees of The Havebury Housing Partnership recognise. This housing association, which manages more than 6,000 houses and flats in Suffolk, made a big contribution to revamping a local playground last year. It now has smart swings, slides, a roundabout and a zipwire. Staff believe the association has a strong social conscience (an 81% positive score). Havebury also scored well for its support of staff development. People who work for it feel they have a positive future in the organisation (75%, ranked sixth among small not-for-profit outfits) and view the training they receive as extremely beneficial (78%). www.havebury.com

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

The assessment demonstrated that Havebury met all the requirements for the Investors in People award. They achieved a silver accreditation after going beyond the required standard to meet an additional 87 indicators from the wider Investors in People framework. The assessor comments positively on the ongoing commitment to developing their employees skills and their focus on customer service. “There is a range of opportunities for everyone to develop leadership capabilities. Potential managers have access to management development activities and there are opportunities to act up in a role, lead on improvement projects and lead on a specialist area and share expertise with others, everyone is very committed and dedicated to Havebury's overall purpose and priorities and was keen to help in whatever way they could to support improvements. They are extremely proud to work here.”
