Grand Union Housing Group (GUHG) has been voted one of the top 100 not-for-profit organisations in the country according to the Sunday Times.

The Sunday Times Best Companies list, which looks at every aspect of the workplace, celebrates the best companies to work for in the UK.

Employees from GUHG, which is the parent company of Aragon - managing thousands of homes in Central Beds - and MacIntyre Housing Associations and South Northants Homes, were asked to take part in a rigorous survey that identifies workplace performance and best practice according to certain factors.

Alan Humphreys, GUHG’s Chief Executive said: “We were delighted with our success last year but to make it onto the list for a second year running is great news for our staff.

“We learned a lot from the Best Companies award over the last year and are always trying to implement further improvements to the workplace in recognition of how much we value our employees.

“A great workplace is about fairness and opportunity for everyone at every level.

“We are undergoing huge changes in our industry at the moment which has meant some big changes for our staff and we really want to thank them for their continued dedication.”

GUHG, which operates across Bedfordshire, South Northamptonshire and the Milton Keynes area, has built on the success of the last two years, when it was first accredited with star status by Best Companies.
