Gloucestershire housing association scoops gold Investors in People award

Two Rivers Housing has been awarded the We invest in people gold accreditation from Investors in People.

The Gloucestershire-based housing association, which employs more than 150 people across the county, received the award this month. The coveted gold accreditation is only awarded to 17 per cent of companies that are assessed and recognises that everyone - from the chief executive to the apprentice - takes ownership of making the organisation a great place to work.

It reflects our ambition to be an excellent local employer, playing our part in creating rewarding roles within a vibrant local economy.
