UniHomes earns Great Place to Work® Certification™

3rd January 2024

UniHomes, the industry-leading student accommodation advertising portal, has been officially certified as a Great Place to Work® (GPTW®).

The accolade reaffirms our devotion to creating a workplace and culture that is fully inclusive, vibrant and supports the needs of our team, with over 80 of employees feeding back a positive experience.

“This is a proud moment - since the beginning, we’ve been committed to our people and culture, as we want UniHomes to be the best workplace to be, so this is a real endorsement for all the hard work that’s going into this,” Phil Greaves, Co-Founder of UniHomes, said.

GPTW® is the global authority on workplace culture, and certification™ is only awarded if validated employee feedback from their survey is at least 65% positive. UniHomes scored well above this threshold and the UK business average of 54%, with a score of 82%.

“Achieving Certification™ from Great Place to Work® is a fantastic accomplishment for the dedication we have in creating an environment of trust, happiness, inclusivity and belonging,” Tamaris Roberts, Head of People and Culture at UniHomes, said.

She continued: “Since I joined, obtaining employee feedback has been key, as their voice adds such value in developing the culture, wellbeing and development of everyone within the business, as this ultimately shapes the environment they need to be happy, valued and top performers.

“Where we are today is testament to our team in helping drive this and our commitment to being an employer of choice, and I personally want to thank everyone for their hard work, kindness and dedication to the business.”

Now based in our modern office in Sheffield city centre, UniHomes remains committed to supporting staff, as we believe in giving everyone the ability to grow and develop, alongside regular incentives, seasonal celebrations and charitable initiatives we hold throughout the year.

Our journey to earning Certification™ has been guided by the dedication, talent and collaborative spirit of every member of the UniHomes family, who are the true stars behind our incredible success story to date.

The recognition culminates a year of notable growth for UniHomes, which also saw us named the fastest growing technology company in Yorkshire, in the highly coveted Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 awards.

The awards celebrate innovation and technology which continues to be the driving force of our business, it is the heart and soul of what we do and will continue to be so for years to come.

This is an incredible accomplishment for UniHomes and one that also reflects all the amazing hard work and dedication of everyone within the business in making this possible.

Crediting the ongoing growth of UniHomes to the company’s dedication and focus on people, culture, and developing the best possible technologies, products, and customer support, Phil added: “People will always be the heart of UniHomes, and it’s reassuring to know that our team have reported a consistently positive experience with their colleagues, their jobs, the workplace and the leadership.”

He continued: “Creating a good environment and culture is vital, as we know that the better experience our teams have, the better the experience the customer has and ultimately the better the business. I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has contributed to this, and I’m delighted to know we are delivering this.”

Already operating in 42 locations nationwide, at UniHomes we’re continuing our mission to transform the UK student property market – one perfect all-inclusive ‘home from home’ at a time.
