What is it like to work for Gallions Housing Association Ltd

Personal Growth
Personal Growth

Gallions offer an excellent foundation for all new members of staff. On the first day with the Association they undertake an introductory meeting with HR and are presented with an Induction Plan and Induction Guide, which includes background information about the growth of the Association, their structure, aims, values, purpose and how they fit into this. The organisation helps employees develop a better awareness of their stock and challenges managing it. They offer a Neighbourhood Warden Tour where employees spend an afternoon with their Wardens, walking and driving round the estate, again gaining an understanding of their stock, residents and the challenges. They also do CCT Awareness so employees listen to the variety of calls that come into Gallions' Customer Contact Centre to understand the issues from their residents and how Gallions deal with them.

Wellbeing

Gallions have been working with Bexley Council since 2009 to deliver REGULAR [email protected] programmes to staff. These programmes invite staff to take part in a free 10 week programme of activity and (optional) education. Activities vary from week to week (e.g. circuits, aerobics, zumba, salsa, yoga, body pump) and are held in the Association's offices. Gallions' [email protected] champion works closely with the council to promote and deliver the programme of events and has already arranged additional activities for staff in addition to the scheduled programme (e.g. Badminton classes as subsidised rates).
Fair Deal

GHA runs a contribution based pay scheme which is quite unique to the sector in which they operate. This was introduced for the 2010-2011 performance year following an extensive review of their reward strategy practices. The Association's new Reward Strategy aims to pay upper quartile salaries for upper quartile performance, ensuring that pay is aligned with the market and internal relativities ensuring that the Association’s salary bill is affordable and rewards the achievement of objectives in the year of performance via the bonus. As part of this strategy the Association introduced the contribution based pay scheme.
