January 2016 - IiP Gold
Following the recent IiP review, Radian has once again achieved Gold accreditation.
May 2013 - in the top 600!
By achieving Investors in People (IiP) Gold standard, we are delighted to have enhanced our reputation, as an employer of distinction. The award is a demonstration of how we have invested in our staff over the last three years to be recognised as an employer of choice. Only 3.2% of the organisations who receive the IiP accreditation are awarded the Gold Standard and Radian has now joined an elite group of just 600 organisations in the UK that have reached that level.
We are also proud about how well we support our staffs mental and physical health and wellbeing and underwent the assessment necessary to achieve the new IiP Health and Wellbeing award. Our success in achieving this award highlights one of our top priorities alongside our successful Employee Engagement Programme.

Choice: Working to be chosen on merit for everything we do
Opportunity: Creating it, seizing it, offering it

The Radian Way
This is a framework of five key behaviours that Radian staff work to – it ensures consistent and fair behaviour from everyone and lets us all know what is expected of us and others. It also helps us identify development needs, assess our performance and monitor how we demonstrate our values to others.
The five behaviours are...
Change: Anticipate, plan and cope effectively with business change and apply creative thinking to continually improve business processes, systems or services.
Communicate: Work to give and receive verbal and non-verbal information to help build rapport, gain confidence and get commitment.
Engage: Engage yourself and others to take ownership of personal performance and development.
Service: Deliver excellent customer service in order to meet the identified needs of both internal and external customers.
Team: Work with people in a cooperative and empowering way that recognises their strengths and maximises both individual and team performance.
Improving LGB services
Radian has signed up to Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme. This means we will be working with Stonewall, a leading lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) rights charity, to ensure the services we provide for our residents are accessible and fair. It will also help Radian to perform as an employer of choice for LGB people.
We are an award winning organisation, employing over 1000 staff, providing nearly 21,000 affordable homes in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey, Sussex, and Wiltshire; and providing care and support to over 450 people across the South East, through Radian Support.
We strive to create conditions where our residents, people we support, communities and staff can flourish. We aim for excellence in all of the affordable housing and care & support services that we offer. We are a diverse and vibrant social business, with a strong sense of commercial reality.
