Chrysalis members, whg, share how they’re using the online platform to maintain health, safety and wellbeing momentum across all levels of the organisation…
whg is one of the Midlands’ leading and most successful providers of good quality, affordable homes. With a workforce of around 750 people and 22,000 properties to maintain, their Trades Colleagues span many professions including plumbers, carpenters and electricians.
They’ve used Tribe to carry out pieces of bespoke work such as a culture assessment and tailored leadership workshops. Then in late 2021, they became Chrysalis members.
Steven Davis, Health, Safety and Environment Manager, heads up the three-person Health and Safety team. “Chrysalis is wonderful,” he says. “It’s all quite thought provoking and will keep us motivated for a long time yet.”
“There were two reasons why we joined Chrysalis. Firstly, to continue all the good work we’ve been doing with Tribe and our Lead Consultant, and secondly to make use of all the tools on there.”
Dedicated Consultant time
As part of Chrysalis membership, members receive dedicated consultancy time with a Tribe Culture Change Consultant. In whg’s case, it’s Lead Consultant, Colin Hewson.
Steven is really seeing the benefit of working with Colin. “Your Consultant gets to know you and the business,” says Steven. “Colin hasn’t worked with a housing association before but he’s worked with plenty of similar organisations at a high level. He understands the hierarchy and the politics.”
Colin worked with Steven to put together a plan of action about how the online platform could help them over the next few months. He identified a starting point and highlighted relevant resources so Steven and his colleagues could share health, safety and wellbeing messages with the organisation in a timely way.
Now Colin is working with Steven to tailor the resources so it resonates with whg’s team leaders and supervisors. “We’re going to rename some of the wellbeing conversation resources so they really speak to our managers.” Colin will edit the content and provide wrap around content specifically tailored to whg.
