Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) is celebrating a double win at a prestigious business awards.
Scotland’s largest social landlord was named Platinum Employer of the Year (500+ employee category) and Apprentice Employer of the Year at this year’s Investors in People (IiP) awards.
The awards celebrate the best people management practices amongst Investors in People-accredited businesses.
Paul Devoy, head of Investors in People, said: “This year’s Investors in People Awards were the biggest and best to date.
“It was fantastic to see so many worthy organisations nominated for outperforming in their sector, demonstrating great people management practice and a commitment to staff development.

GHA, which is part of Wheatley Group, was awarded IiP platinum status in May 2016.
Martin Armstrong, chief executive of Wheatley Group, said: “These two awards from Investors in People are further recognition of the hard work, dedication and commitment GHA staff show every day.”
