For over 50 years we’ve been a force for positive change, particularly during the country’s continuing housing and residential challenges. Our commercial approach combined with our clear social purpose enables us to reinvest our profits to improve the quality of our homes, services and our communities, support local economies and provide more much needed affordable housing.
As a responsible business, we are committed to improving the long-term prospects of society. We do this through taking steps to protect our planet for future generations, through investing in a range of projects to support communities, families and individuals, and through ensuring we have in place robust governance standards and excellent employment practices.
We’ve built a diverse, open and inclusive culture where all perspectives are valued. We’re always working hard to make Orbit the best place to work for our 1,200 employees. We have an active People agenda that plans to build on our continued success as a Sunday Times Top 100 Best Company.
