Cairn Housing Association has been awarded with a four star Recognised for Excellence Award at the 2018 Scottish Awards for Business Excellence.
At an event attended by over 250 professionals from across the public, private and third sectors, Cairn walked away with an award which marks the latest milestone in their ambitious improvement journey.
To achieve Recognised for Excellence, Cairn completed a detailed self-assessment exercise based on the EFQM Fundamental Concepts of Excellence. Accredited EFQM Assessors, from a range of backgrounds, visited Cairn in March for a week-long assessment of the Association’s submission.
Jason MacGilp, Cairn’s Chief Executive, said:
“We are very proud to receive this award which involved colleagues from across every part of the Association.
2018 has already been an exceptional year for Cairn. This Recognised for Excellence Award follows on from our Customer Service Excellence Accreditation, our Best Companies Award as the best housing association to work for in Scotland, and the recent Yes vote in North Ayrshire where tenants voted overwhelmingly for ANCHO to join the Cairn Group in a new partnership.
The Quality Scotland award is great credit to the whole staff team and we’re looking forward to the challenges ahead.”
