We have introduced a new award to recognise staff who show exceptional behaviour in the communities they serve. The RISE award has been given to four members of our Maintenance team recently after they all helped save someone’s life.
2021 is the first year we have been on three lists, with Giving Something Back remaining our highest category.Best Companies is fantastic reward and recognition for all the hard work of our dedicated and caring staff. Our people know that we aim to do our best for our residents and the communities we work in. The last 14 months have been unprecedented and we felt continuing with our Best Companies journey was more important than ever.
We have put reducing our carbon footprint at the heart of anything we do, with a team dedicated to reducing our environmental impact – green is the way forward for us.
The campaign theme for the 2021 International Women’s Day is #ChoosetoChallenge. IWD is a good day to challenge ourselves not only about what we seek to achieve in relation to gender balance at Melin but also more widely, because while we can celebrate that our gender pay gap is zero we know we still have a long way to go, to be a truly diverse and inclusive organisation.
Despite the current pandemic, our Maintenance service is in the best position it has ever been, and the team have seen massive improvements over the year compared to 2019.
