BRC made a big impact at the Bristol social housing CIH South West Conference two-day event, held recently at the Grand Hotel in the city.
Following a two-year Covid hiatus, Mark Grove (Housing Management and Branwen Johns (Assets & Technical Roles) ran a stand at the conference.
The event was a great opportunity to meet people in the social housing sector and discuss social housing recruitment and retention strategies.
The CIH South West Conference was attended by speakers from across the region, with a focus on social housing policy, levelling up the sector and the overall economic outlook post-pandemic.
The five main areas of the conference included:
Asset management and sustainability
As well as registering interest with old and new clients, the BRC team spoke to clients to gauge what they got out of the event.
Some of the most popular topics discussed were ‘Keynote: the economic outlook for the UK and social housing’ ‘Working together to end homelessness’ ‘The implications of net zero, ethical decisions and challenges’ ‘The landscape of tenant involvement in the South West’ ‘Attracting and retaining talent in a competitive jobs market’ and ‘Supporting our customers through fuel poverty’ with many engaging and interesting points being made.
The CIH South West Conference gave attendees the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and make valuable connections in Bristol social housing.
One of the highlights for the team was reconnecting with a candidate who BRC placed in their first social housing role in 2004. The individual was attending the conference to speak on Resident Engagement.
