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.
Here’s what some of our staff had to say when asked what makes Melin a great place to work?
"Even though most of this year we have been in lockdown and working from home, Melin has made every effort to make us feel valued and included, with lots of postal surprises!”
"Employees are constantly appreciated for the work they do. There is team spirit and you get a great sense of belonging to the organisation."
"The people, it’s a great place to work! I have been here since 2001 so say no more.”
"I feel supported in my role and appreciated. It’s been a very tough year for everyone. I feel extremely lucky to be able to work from home in these difficult times. My line manager and team manager have been supportive throughout. Not only do we look after our residents, we look after each other.”
"Melin is an outstanding place to work. I am encouraged and empowered to carry out my daily role. We are looked after as individuals, with a wide range of benefit options which support my mental health, wellbeing and keeps me motivated. The Zest initiative has been the bed rock of looking after staff welfare for a long time with many initiatives to keep me fit and well.”
Paula Kennedy, Chief Executive at Melin said: “Being placed at number six on Housing’s 25 Best Associations to Work For list is something to be really proud of. These awards really matter to us at Melin because they are based on how staff genuinely feel about where they work. I would like to thank everyone at Melin for making it a fantastic place to work, their dedication over the last year has been inspiring under such difficult circumstances.”
