Giving Our Stakeholders a Voice

Engagement the key to progress

The inaugural Pioneer Group annual Stakeholder Event took place at the organisation’s headquarters on Castle Vale High Street.

Established and delivered to update tenants, residents and partner organisations on the company’s plans to safeguard and improve the short and long term future of people living and working in its communities, the meeting also provided insight into how support is delivered at grass roots level to help those with health and employment needs.

Pioneer’ Chief Executive, Simon Wilson and Board Chairman, Francis Burrows, presented an outline of the activities currently being co-ordinated across the estate alongside the strategic aims of the business¬† and its corporate plan through 2025.

Meanwhile, Dave Livesey, Asset Management and Development Director at Pioneer, outlined works planned for some of the more than 2,500 properties in its portfolio of properties.

“We do this with our 30 year plans, forecasting where and when we are going to spend our money,” he said,

“This is done with a series of inspections called stock condition surveys with the outcome of these surveys informing our planned works programmes.”

During the meeting residents had the opportunity to question members of the Pioneer Group’s senior leadersip team on any key concerns they have and working with the local community to build stronger relationships.

Event co-ordinator, Vikash Mistry, Resident Engagement Officer at Pioneer, added: “It is important we maintain open dialogue with all our stakeholders, especially tenants and residents across Castle Vale, in order to provide them with information that will impact them.

“We are keen that people have a voice in what we do, and help shape projects and activities that will benefit them.”
