EMPLOYEES AT SOCIAL landlord Walsall Housing Group (WHG) helped to create a garden near Walsall town centre for its residents to grow fruit and vegetables, and relax. The mid-size organisation, a new entry, cares about the environment (78% positive, a top-10 ranking); on a community benefit day some of the 651 staff spent hours digging, weeding and laying paths. This year, WHG wins our special award for Best Improver. www.whg.uk.com

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

88% of staff agreed

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

Walsall Housing Group have a recognition scheme called Going the Extra Mile (GEM). “Going the Extra Mile” is defined as activities that have a positive impact on WHG's customers, colleagues or both. The recognition is not for ‘doing the day job' but for activities that are seen to be above and beyond what would normally be expected. GEM in the Community is a colleague recognition scheme that promotes community benefits and rewards positive, community-minded behaviour. The scheme is based on colleagues' voluntary involvement in groups or activities outside working hours. The Emerald GEM recognises teams who go the extra mile to protect and improve the environment by minimising the impact of the company's activities, promoting sustainability initiatives, or suggesting innovative ways for them to become a greener organisation. Colleagues can be nominated by anyone within the business and, if approved by the individual's line manager, their achievements are shared their ‘outstanding colleagues' wall in the main office. They also receive a prize, tailored to the team or the individual and have included restaurant meals, gift vouchers, flowers and days out.

Giving Something Back

88% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Colleagues took a break from their day jobs to help create a community garden just minutes from Walsall town centre. WHG leased a plot of land to Caldmore Village Festival Group to create an outdoor space for use by the whole community. In time, it will be used by local residents for growing fruit, vegetables and plants, outdoor education and recreation. Work to transform the site received a boost when WHG announced it would hold a community benefit day to support the venture on the ground. Colleagues from across the organisation turned out in force to do their bit, despite the wet and windy conditions. They rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in by digging, weeding, laying paths, clearing and tidying, trimming and pruning. Mohammed Arif, Vice-Chairman of Caldmore Village Festival Group, stopped off at the community garden during the event and said: “The WHG volunteers had turned up on a rain soaked day and impressed me with their dedication and commitment. On behalf of the group, I wish to thank WHG colleagues and sub-contractors who assisted them once again to make their community garden a reality. All the partners in this project have stood tall and really contributed; I have nothing but admiration for everyone. “
