We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for Best Digital Transformation and Best Approach to Diversity and Inclusion categories at the Northern Housing Awards!

The Northern Housing Awards

The Northern Housing Awards shine a light on the individuals and organisations who make it their mission to improve homes and communities in the north. They recognise those that provide homes and help communities thrive, deliver services that are changing lives, provide best innovation within the industry and businesses that solve problems and overcome obstacles for their customers.

Best Digital Transformation

Our Oneserve system is a platform we are very proud of and to be recognised for such a prestigious award really highlights our efforts in enhancing our customer experience through new technologies. The bespoke system ensures we offer customer-centric accessible services, which improves reliability for appointments and communications through:

  • Better visibility of confirmed appointment slots for clients
  • Two-way texting for customers
  • Text reminders
  • Operative trackers
  • Client portal access
  • Better and more robust reporting

Oneserve has already aided to our ambitious growth targets through helping secure large, long-term contracts, by acting as a unique selling point for project bids.

Best Approach to Diversity and Inclusion

We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce, where our colleagues feel welcome and understood whatever their gender, race, sexuality, or age. Our shortlist for Best Approach to Diversity and Inclusion really acknowledges our dedication to breaking the stereotype which sees the housing industry as a male-dominated field.

As a family-owned company, we have historically adopted a people-centric approach to business – placing both our clients and our people at the heart of our actions. Through this, we’re proud to continue to create an inclusive culture, through our four-point plan, where difference is valued and specific actions have put in place around the Women in Novus network, Increased Belonging, introduction of an Everyone Strategy plus a complete Pay and Benefits review.

We’re very excited to for the gala dinner and awards ceremony on Tuesday 17 May 2022 at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.
