Port of Leith Housing Association (PoLHA) has been named one of The Sunday Times’ 100 Best UK Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2019. It was revealed at an awards ceremony in central London on 20 February that PoLHA was listed at 42nd place in the prestigious list.

The association also features in the 50 Best Companies to Work For in Scotland and the Top 25 Best Housing Associations to Work For lists.

The rankings are based on staff feedback on key criteria, including leadership, wellbeing, personal growth and getting a fair deal.

PoLHA has also received a two-star accreditation from Best Companies (its second-highest award for workplace engagement) in recognition of its ‘outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement.

Keith Anderson, Chief Executive, Port of Leith Housing Association said:

“We’re dedicated to making Leith and the association great, so it’s fantastic to have received this accolade and to know that our staff really enjoy working here. Leith’s strong sense of community is one of its greatest assets, and I’m pleased to note that a similar sense of community exists among our staff, who work hard day in and day out to make Leith a great place to live, visit and do business.

“Placing 42nd in the top 100 UK Not-For-Profits to Work For is an outstanding achievement by our staff who make this a really rewarding and enjoyable place to work.”

Best Companies Founder and CEO, Jonathan Austin, said:

“I would like to congratulate Port of Leith Housing Association on their achievement of a Two Star Accreditation status and being named as one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work for.

“Best Companies have been producing the accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace.

“We are proud that organisations like Port of Leith Housing Association focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that they’re a best company to work for.”
