Housing Today has announced its Every Person Counts initiative to share insights around workforce issues across the whole of the housing sector. Every Person Counts aims to provide a place where debates about skills, employment, regulatory compliance, equality diversity and inclusivity and workplace culture can play out and solutions can be shared.

Our coverage will look at what the sector needs to do to ensure it can rise to the challenge of meeting new regulations, improve standards in housing management while also moving closer to delivering 300,000 homes a year to tackle the housing crisis.

We know that housing professionals come up against these issues in their everyday working lives, which is why we want to hear from you - our readers - about your experiences as employees and employers.
