For over 50 years we’ve been a force for positive change, particularly during the country’s continuing housing and residential challenges. Our commercial approach combined with our clear social purpose enables us to reinvest our profits to improve the quality of our homes, services and our communities, support local economies and provide more much needed affordable housing.
As a responsible business, we are committed to improving the long-term prospects of society. We do this through taking steps to protect our planet for future generations, through investing in a range of projects to support communities, families and individuals, and through ensuring we have in place robust governance standards and excellent employment practices.
We’ve built a diverse, open and inclusive culture where all perspectives are valued. We’re always working hard to make Orbit the best place to work for our 1,200 employees. We have an active People agenda that plans to build on our continued success as a Sunday Times Top 100 Best Company.
Following Orbit’s recent Health and Safety Excellence Awards, we caught up with Jayne Lombardi, Head of Health Safety & Insurance at Orbit, for a Q&A about the importance of health and safety and how the pandemic has placed it firmly under the spotlight.
Working alongside the Chartered Institute of Housing, we gathered the views of 900 customers to help us understand our social rented households’ priorities around the net zero carbon agenda, as well as to examine what matters to them in relation to their environment.
