    Cross Keys Homes, of which Angus Kennedy is Chair, was featured as one of the Top 100 Best Places to Work by the Sunday Times in March 2011.  Cross Keys was placed 69th in the list.

    An article appeared in the Peterborough Evening Telegraph on 7th March and the full list appeared in the Sunday Times on 13 March.

    The full text of the article was as follows:

    ‘Delighted staff are celebrating after their Peterborough firm was ranked one of the best in the country.

    ‘Housing association Cross Keys Homes, which employs around 250 people, has been placed 69th in The Sunday Times 100 Best Places to Work in Public and Charity Sector category.

    ‘It is the only firm in Peterborough on the list and came after 63 per cent of employees completed an online survey about what it is like working for the association, its management and community ambition.

    ‘Chief Executive Mick Leggett said:  ‘This success is a tribute to our staff here who know that they all play a big part in making our organisation as good as it is because of their positive attitudes and shared values.’

    ‘Neighbourhood manager for anti-social behaviour Dee Holman picked up the organisation’s accolade with colleague Sue McKay.

    ‘It was held at the glamorous Battersea Evolution centre in London, on February 23.

    ‘She said:  ‘I have been working for Cross Keys for six years and really enjoy my job.  Sue and I had a great evening at the awards ceremony and we were honoured to have been chosen to represent our organisation at this prestigious event.’

    ‘The organisation took over the management of the city’s housing stock in October 2004 and since then has invested £108 million improving tenants’ homes.

    ‘City Councillor John Holdich, in his previous role as cabinet member for housing, played an instrumental part in its creation.  He said: ‘The people of Peterborough said they didn’t want a national housing association, they wanted Peterborough to form its own.  I take great pride in how successful the organisation has been.’

    ‘John Bridge, chief executive of the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce said:  ‘this award is a real tribute and credit to the team.’

    ‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies list for Public and Charity Sector was published on March 13 2011.’
