Halton Housing is hosting a session to provide insight into its innovative and forward-thinking culture.
The “Future of Work Taster Session” will offer attendees the opportunity to hear first-hand how Halton Housing transformed the way its colleagues work and deliver services to its customers.
Halton Housing has delivered significant savings at the same time as increasing both employee and customer satisfaction.
In May, Waterfront Point, the home of Halton Housing won the accolade of ‘Corporate Workplace Award’ for the North of England at the British Council of Offices UK Awards. The award recognises Waterfront Point as a ‘vibrant’ workplace along with its strong emphasis on the health and wellbeing of employees, and collaborative working.
From removing individual offices and desks, scrapping the dress code and ripping up its social media policy to giving colleagues the freedom to work from anywhere and anytime through their ‘two device policy’ and agile working.
Nick Atkin, Halton Housing Group Chief Executive said: “We are delighted to be launching the Future of Work Sessions. This gives a unique insight into our working culture, showcasing how our approach has led to significant cost savings, enabling us to focus our resources on where they are most needed.”
Nick added: “Waterfront Point is the culmination of our drive to fundamentally rethink how we work, and how this fits with our digital first approach to customer services. Our mantra is “work is something you do not somewhere you go”. The use of the space at Waterfront Point reinforces this approach as somewhere people come for a purpose – to collaborate on a particular aspect of work or a project.”
Sue Baxendale, Director of Organisational Development said: “Our aim has consistently been to be a leading employer, so we can recruit but also retain the very best talent. This then enables us to deliver fantastic services for our customers.
“We are incredibly proud of our workspace and culture and are excited to be able to share this with other organisations looking to redesign their space and reshape their culture.”
The session has been developed due to an unprecedented demand for reference visits, consultation and interest in Halton’s innovative approach, culture and office space. This has included organisations from outside the housing sector. It also builds upon the 300+ organisations that have previously attended the Digital First taster sessions.
The session will also include a tour of Waterfront Point. A unique, collaborative and flexible space, showcasing the culture and commitment to innovation offering a glimpse into the workplace of the future.
The session will be facilitated by Nick Atkin, Halton Housing Group Chief Executive and Sue Baxendale, Director of Organisational Development.
The first session takes place on Tuesday 5 February 2019 from 12:30pm to 4:00pm. For further details and information on how to book visit Eventbrite.
