Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Global Award for Happiest Organisation Awarded to Welsh Housing Association


United Welsh have been recognised for their employee happiness levels, taking home the 2020 TINYAward for Happiest organisation in the Government & Non-Profit sector.

TINYPulse is an employee engagement platform that allows organisations to get valuable feedback from employees to create a happier workplace, and United Welsh staff submitted the highest average happiness scores across the globe in their sector.

Lynda Sagona, Group Chief Executive of United Welsh, said:

“We are over the moon to have been awarded the 2020 Happiest Award. Our people work incredibly hard to provide quality homes and make a difference to our communities every day, and so we are always striving to improve our company culture and ensure our staff are happy and supported at work.

“For us, the best way to improve company culture is to do it collaboratively across the organisation. Instead of assuming what needs to be changed, we ask staff directly what they need to work well and be happy at work. We do this by using platforms such as TINYPulse, which we’ve used since 2017, that helps us to ask questions and regularly measure the happiness of our teams and allows staff to provide honest feedback and suggestions.

“We are thrilled that our staff have awarded us with the highest Happiness Scores in our sector, and we look forward to continuing to work with them to make United Welsh a great place to be.”
