Stockport Homes Group (SHG) scooped two prestigious awards at the Greater Manchester Business Awards on 4 September.
Stockport Homes Group is an umbrella organisation overseeing companies dedicated to meeting housing and social needs and so transforming lives for the people of Greater Manchester.
Winning the titles of ‘Business of the Year (over 10 staff), and ‘Community and Socially Responsible Organisation’, SHG have demonstrated commercial success that not only recognises phenomenal growth, but the importance of investment to benefit the local communities.
The award for Business of the Year incorporates employee engagement, which as the Sunday Times Best not for Profit Organisation to work for this year is understandably extraordinarily high. The groups mission of ‘One Team, Transforming Lives’ sees employees continually delivering excellent services for customers and making SHG a great place to work, contributing to not only the business success but to a thriving and vibrant culture.
The award for Community and Social Responsibility focuses on how SHG works collaboratively with partners and customers to not only guarantee socially responsible investment for homes and communities, but also to provide opportunities to enhance lives. With customers and communities at the heart of everything, SHG provide support with finance, employment and health and wellbeing to name but a few projects making a huge difference in Stockport and Greater Manchester.
Jenny Osbourne, Chair of Stockport Homes Group’s Board, said
As a growing business that delivers such a wide range of services, it’s a great achievement for us to be recognised in these categories, and to be the only Housing Provider in Greater Manchester to be listed. We are proud of our achievements, and our continued dedication to delivering high quality services for our customers.
