We're excited to let you know that our Repairs and Maintenance Team have been recognised for their outstanding training and development programme, delivered by our People and Culture Team. As a result of this programme, we have been named as one of 46 recipients across the UK of a 2021 Princess Royal Training Award.
The award recognises the impact of our "Refreshing Repairs" leadership development programme. The programme has had a transformative impact on our repairs service, delivering a significant increase in tenant satisfaction as well as employee engagement within the team. The programme also meant that the team was much better placed to face the challenges that the pandemic has created over the past 18 months.
The programme was delivered by our own People and Culture Team, working closely with repairs colleagues and with our external partners The Houston Exchange.
