Investors in People award Leeds Federated Silver!

19 Dec 2023

Leeds Federated are proud to have been awarded a ‘We invest in people’, silver accreditation from Investors  in People.  

As part of the process, Leeds Federated colleagues were invited to share honest feedback to Investors in People who impartially assessed the organisation around topics such as leading and inspiring people, values and behaviours, managing performance, reward and recognition, development and continuous improvement.

Achieving the silver award means that the right principles are in place across Leeds Federated and that people and leaders are making active efforts to make sure that there’s real consistency across the organisation.

At Leeds Federated, our mission is to help more people find an affordable home to own or rent so they can build their future, their way, in a thriving community. As a housing association, we have over 4,500 properties across Leeds, Wakefield and North Yorkshire.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said:

We’d like to congratulate Leeds Federated. Silver accreditation on ‘We invest in people’ is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Leeds Federated in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.

Commenting on the award, Megan Henderson, Head of Corporate Services at Leeds Federated, said:

“We’re delighted to have moved from a standard to silver accreditation. For us, the Investors in People process is a fantastic opportunity to find out where colleagues think we’re really at as an organisation and highlight how we can improve and develop in the future.

At Leeds Federated, we believe in building futures together and that the success of our organisation begins and ends with people. If we make work better for everyone and support people to reach their potential, we make Leeds Federated better for customers too. And if we do that…more people have the chance to thrive and communities become stronger, healthier and happier.
