Bromford is a social enterprise all about unlocking the potential of our customers and colleagues. My Bromford adventure started when I was a frontline housing officer, then took me on a road through various support services. I’m now director of people and so lucky to be working with a great crew doing amazing things.
I’m eternally curious through research, networking and collaboration, tracking trends and innovation. It’s my job to then pick through all that to extract what needs to be done to meet the challenges it throws up and exploit the opportunities.
I’m happy to share the Bromford improvement and transformational change journey – the good things that went according to plan and the things we’d have done differently too.
Company Profile: Bromford is a social enterprise with an important purpose – to inspire people to be their best. We work with people to help them find out what it is they want to achieve in their life, for some people this could be anything which helps them feel a little more in control of their future.
We have a growing range of services: courses to help find work; support to help get tenancies off to the best possible start; money advice; skills coaches to help access the right training or learning opportunities; information and advice about home ownership and a whole lot more.
We know, love, and admire organisations out there that are doing amazing things to achieve sustained high performance and high engagement. Are you like me and just can’t get enough of case studies like Zappos, Google, Netflix, Virgin etc?
Is your challenge like mine to decide if any of the initiatives and ways of working that these big names are leading on will work in your organisation? And if so how to take people with you?
Come along if you want to explore and pick apart a case study of how an ‘ordinary’ organisation trying out and adopting some extraordinary things is trying to achieve the balance between high performance leadership (for the future not of the future) and a great culture/family feel – and all in the context of the changes in how people and businesses work.
