Do you work for purpose or pay

We all need financial reward in order to live.

However, no matter how big your pay packet, you’ll be risking the Monday morning blues if job satisfaction levels are on the floor.

The thing is, you don’t need to sacrifice one over the other – you can have your cake and eat it.

We recently undertook a research project to understand what really motivates our colleagues. We found that, for most, the opportunity to play a part in changing somebody’s life for the better was key to their job satisfaction, which is something every colleague at Home Group has. 

Home Group offers financial reward combined with meaningful employment. In addition to being one of the UK’s largest developers of new homes and providers of affordable housing, we provide long term integrated housing, health and social care housing for individuals who need extra support in their day to day lives. 

We have delivered affordable solutions for individuals and families who want to take their first step on the property ladder; provided care and support for those living with mental health problems and learning disabilities, and currently house 120,000 customers in 55,000 homes across the UK – so we certainly play a significant role in today’s housing, health and wellbeing agenda.

The great thing about Home Group is that we work commercially in order to achieve our social goals. This means we create our own funds – through new housing developments and sales – in order to reinvest this money back into the business to support those who need it the most.

This enables us to attract top quality candidates to our roles, as we can offer competitive salary packages and a great work life balance.

Because Home Group works with some of society’s most vulnerable people, we truly understand the need to look after our colleagues, supporting a healthy and happy workforce that, in turn, delivers an exceptional service to our customers.

We’re really proud of our passionate team of colleagues who work incredibly hard to make a big difference to people’s lives. We’re currently going through a really exciting period of growth and change, which is creating new opportunities for even more brilliant people to join us.
