Housing Today this week announces its Every Person Counts initiative to share insights around workforce issues across the whole of the housing sector.

EPC-HT-24 (1)

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.

Whether it is the development of much-needed new homes in the face of funding and planning constraints, decarbonising existing stock, ensuring compliance with building safety rules or responding to the new regulatory regime in social housing, housing organisations of all types are facing unprecedented change.

And in order to rise to these challenges the housing sector as a whole needs to ensure its workforce is sufficiently skilled, diverse, efficient and dynamic to  fulfil its potential.

Over the coming weeks and months we will be focusing on different challenges affecting the housing sector’s workforce.

We will be highlighting key HR issues, employment initiatives, equality, diversity and inclusion best practices along with skills and education programmes. We will also examine specific challenges in different parts of the UK.

Our coverage will also include different job roles and individuals involved in interesting work across the whole of the sector, whether commercial, non-profit or local authority.

Let’s share the sector’s best solutions and help to ensure that every person working in housing really feels that they do count.
