Everyone at Derwent Living plays an essential role in contributing to the delivery and success of the business plan. This is achieved by aligning operational plans and personal objectives to the goals of the organisation, that way everyone knows where they fit and why what they do is important.
Colleague engagement comes from people understanding where the organisation is heading, what is expected of them and what it means to work for Derwent Living. This guides thinking, decision making and behaviours. At the highest level, colleagues understand that the company exists to provide affordable housing and that it undertakes appropriate commercial activity to generate profit to re-invest in this activity, something which is very special about Derwent Living.
