Cross Keys Homes, Peterborough’s largest social landlord, is celebrating being in the Sunday Times Top 100 Places to Work for the fourth consecutive year. The organisation was placed at 67 in the Top 100 Best Not for Profit organisations, and was the only Peterborough company in the list.
This news follows hot on the heels of Cross Keys Homes being shortlisted for the prestigious Institute of Customer Service’s SITEL Customer Commitment Award. This is a national award in which Cross Keys Homes were shortlisted alongside Nationwide Building Society, 123 reg, Balfour Beatty, Argos, Virgin Money, East Midland’s Trains, The Utility Warehouse, Mid-counties Co-operative Travel and the eventual winners, Simply Health.
Plus, Cross Keys Homes’ Tenant Scrutiny panel has been shortlisted in the Tenant Participation Advisory Service’s (TPAS) annual award. The Scrutiny Panel consists of a group of tenants who take a close look at the services, policies and procedures of the organisation and verify that they are all delivered to the highest possible standard. The panel was established in 2010 and has gone from strength to strength and become a vital part of the organisation’s self-regulation.
Mick Leggett, Chief Executive of Cross Keys Homes, said: “To be recognised in three different areas is great news. The Sunday Times Top 100 is a great achievement, and as the ranking is based on surveys conducted with our staff, we know it is a true reflection of how they feel about working for us.”
Chair of Cross Keys Homes, Dr Angus Kennedy, added: “These achievements are a real testament to the staff at Cross Keys Homes who contribute so much to making the organisation such a great place to work, especially because of their positive attitudes and shared values. We can see how this comes through in the service we provide for our tenants and customers – as reflected in our success in the ICS and TPAS awards.”
