My Manager

The performance development framework at Acclaim Housing Group provides the mechanism through which managers identify learning and development requirements, to enable employees to achieve tasks. All managers attend training to understand and implement the process. The process is not intended to be bureaucratic and the importance of dialogue is stressed to managers, as well as providing tools and techniques for reflection and giving constructive feedback.
My Team

Acclaim Housing Group state that due to the dispersed nature of their workforce, often social events are combined with work events. Last year during the Olympics, a number of sport themed events were held, one example being a Family Fun Day in Harborough and Lutterworth. Members of the team took part in traditional sports day activities such as family tug of war, football and sack races. Colleagues really enjoyed spending time together and as this event was combined with a customer event, they valued the opportunity to meet and talk with customers. The organisation’s customer services team, who often are at the end of the phone but don’t meet customers face to face, really found the experience to be valuable.
