Compass Housing Service is a three time finalist in the upcoming 2021 Hunter Business Awards.
The organisation is in the running for awards in the following categories:
- Excellence in Community Enterprise
- Excellence in Sustainability
- Outstanding Employer of Choice
Group Managing Director Greg Budworth said the accolades are a credit to Compass’ highly skilled and professional team.
He said to be a finalist in three categories is a great achievement.
“The Compass team strive for excellence, not only in tenant support but in sustainability,” Greg said.
“We continue to evolve the way we deliver and manage housing to better meet the needs of tenants, community and funding bodies,” he said.
“We been successful in gaining Government contracts to deliver more housing and housing support, which also creates local jobs.”
“Our engagement activities, including our community hubs and gardens, are about making sure we do more than put a roof over people’s heads.”
Greg said Compass’ vision is that all people have appropriate and affordable shelter and are engaged in sustainable communities.
He said Compass has integrated the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into all its plans. It is working with other organisations to increase the use of the SDGs to address major environmental and social issues affecting communities.
“We focus on being an employer of choice so we can attract passionate and talented people to realise our vision.”
