Members of staff from PHP have been recognised for going the extra mile for Poole residents, winning a special prize at The Sunday Times Top 100 Not-for-Profit Companies to Work For celebration event.
PHP, which has now featured in the Top 100 list for the last eight years, received the ‘Giving Something Back Special Award’ during a ceremony hosted by Good Morning Britain presenter Ben Shephard in Battersea Park, south London.
The award is presented to organisations which go over and above the day job, and where employees believe they can make “a valuable contribution” to the company’s success.
PHP runs several schemes which enable employees to demonstrate a strong social responsibility, including:
Joe Logan, Chief Executive, PHP, said: “We’re really proud of securing a place in the Sunday Times list for the eighth consecutive year but even prouder of the team’s efforts to give something back to the people of Poole. Our staff don’t just provide great housing services; they are committed to supporting residents and developing strong communities across the town. This prestigious award recognises the great work PHP does in Poole and that we enjoy doing it.”
PHP’s Policy Officer, Sue Allport, who collected the award with colleagues Katy Ross and Gail Percival, added: “It was amazing to represent PHP at the awards ceremony. We were so surprised to win the special award as the competition from other companies was so strong. PHP offers a fantastic working environment and giving something back is what PHP is all about, so winning this award is an achievement we’re all proud of.”
