Shropshire based Galliers Homes, part of the Tara Group that also comprises  housebuilders Cameron and Keon Homes, has been ranked in this year’s exclusive ‘Great Places to Work’ and ‘Best Workplaces for Wellbeing’ nationwide listings.

The Groups housebuilding companies are the only house builders to feature in the prestigious lists, leading the industry with their commitment to creating a unique culture, with genuine employee satisfaction, focus on wellbeing and excellent career development potential.

Ian Burns, CEO of Galliers Homes, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for Galliers Homes and reflects the positive, supportive environment that we have created for our employees, which in turn flows through to ensure our customers enjoy the very best service.

“The house building sector is often overlooked as a great career opportunity and our ethos of investing in people and creating an environment that encourages and supports careers is paying dividends, not only through awards such as this one but in attracting top talent to join us.

“At a time when we have invested further in a new graduate programme and new apprenticeships, it is particularly pleasing to be recognised for our achievements and see our people grow and develop.”

With only 105 companies making the list for the ‘Great Places to Work’ and 93 medium-sized businesses listed in ‘Best Workplaces for Wellbeing’ across the UK, competition for rankings was fierce, with  Cameron Homes placing 55th.

The Great Place to Work list listens to employee voices to determine what makes a truly great place to work. Organisations seeking a coveted place on the list must undertake a thorough, four-step process including a two-week employee trust survey and in-depth culture audit in order to achieve Great Places to Work certification. The annual ‘Best Workplaces’ lists is then selected from the pool of certified organisations with more than 20 employees.

The Best Workplaces for Wellbeing rankings comprise organisations which have succeeded in making their employees experience high levels of wellbeing in their workplace. To determine the list, culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing their holistic experience of wellbeing at work though fundamental facts of employee wellbeing, including work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety and financial security. Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.
