"Only the very best people work for Plus Dane and we will continue to meet their aspirations by supporting a healthy work-life balance, nurturing career development and ensuring all staff are treated with respect."

Judges were particularly impressed with Plus Dane’s commitment to staff training, an offer it has extended to tenants of its near 13,000 homes.
