About Shropshire Housing Group


What is it like to work for Shropshire Housing Group

Leadership
Leadership
The continuation of the Global Corporate Challenge resulted in staff members reporting that their fitness had improved, their diet was healthier, as well as employees being encouraged to take a break away from their desks especially during lunch hours. Management has the ability to relate to employees at every level, putting them at ease so they feel comfortable, and have the genuine desire to want to understand and address the issues that employees are facing within their workplace. Management is also interested in staff members just as much at a personal level as at work level.
Personal Growth
Personal Growth
Shropshire Housing Group use their Leadership Group and Performance Management Group as an opportunity for junior managers and more junior staff members to develop presentation skills. This is seen as a useful platform for them to have a go at "practicing" in front of critical friends and is a great development opportunity. In addition they permit a cross range of staff to become champions in their own right and use their abilities to train work colleagues e.g. IT software champions, lean ways of working champions and E&D champions are just a few examples. They have also put together a CMI L 3/5/7 for staff/ managers and directors. They are looking to introduce a Career Development Plan for each job role within the orgnaisation.

Awards are given to staff for achievements throughout the year.
