Incommunities in triple award shortlisting

Shipley-based Incommunities is celebrating after being shortlisted for a trio of top housing awards.

The housing group is in the running in two award categories in the 24housing awards – Communication Team of the Year and Best Training Scheme.

The group’s marketing team has been recognised for its work rolling out a host of  internal communication initiatives to develop its employee engagement whilst its Centre for Partnership Team are celebrating a decade of success running its GEM  programme.

Since 2009 over 220 housing professionals from organisations across the UK have completed the GEM development programme which is aimed at nurturing the next generation of housing leaders.

Hundreds of housing organisations entered this year’s 24housing awards, celebrating the very best providers in the sector.

Incommunities is also celebrating making the shortlist in the Women in Housing Awards which is supported by the Chartered Institute of Housing. It’s Equality Group and construction trainers are in the running for the Marketing Initiative prize for their work to encourage more young people from all backgrounds to explore careers in construction.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities Group Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to make the shortlist for these three awards.

“This is a fabulous achievement and a testament to the hard work and ambitions of our staff. As a group we are committed to encouraging more talented people to build their careers in the sector and, equally, invest in our workforce and their development.

“This shortlisting follows hot on the heels of our top landlord ranking by a leading UK housing magazine and a training accolade for our working investing in apprenticeships.”

The winners for both the 24housing awards and Women in Housing Awards will be announced on 10th October.
