The Company/About NHG
Created in 2018 from two well-established housing associations, we are now one of the largest housing associations in London and the south-east, owning and managing more than 66,000 homes and employing around 2,000 staff.
We provide homes across a range of tenures and are committed to continuing to deliver housing that is affordable for all. More than half our homes are general needs properties charged at social or affordable rent levels, but we also offer extra care and supported accommodation for older people, as well as temporary housing, shared ownership, market rent and commercial properties.
NHG Digital Technology Context
We are committed to digitally transforming services both for residents and staff to improve value for money and enable us to thrive and be fit for the future.
In recent years we have built our in-house capability and foundational technology such as our WorkWise 'My Account' platform so that we can invest further in digital technology to improve the fundamental economics of our business, succeed in a fast-changing world and be a leader in our sector. WorkWise has made our key business processes available to residents and colleagues online, and it allows vital information about our properties to be securely stored in one place.
We plan to move completely to the cloud by 2022 (reducing our carbon footprint in the
process), embracing the power of data and cloud technology to help us to understand our residents, homes, and staff better than ever.
We are introducing productivity technology so that routine work can be automated quickly and then easily managed by 'citizen developers' in our various businesses. We want to deliver practical changes that will make us easier to work with and more efficient.
