Section 172 Statement

Section 172 statement – The Board’s approach

Policies and Practices

The Board’s objectives continue to be to maximise the long-term value and revenue streams for its shareholders, to create secure and rewarding employment for its people and to deliver a high quality service to its customers. The Board considers its shareholders, customers and colleagues to be the Company’s key stakeholders.

The Company aims to deliver strong profits via an optimisation of sales opportunities throughout its advisor network and centralised sales functions. The Company has a lean management cost structure, giving the ability to adapt to market changes and resultant opportunities. The New Homes Group Ltd recognises that the housing market can vary widely from one location to another, and it actively encourages and supports its managers in running successful and profitable teams. This “grass roots” awareness has been at the core of the business’ success and is a key component to its future strategy.

Corporate Governance

The Board is responsible for determining the Company’s strategy for managing risk and overseeing its systems of internal control. The ongoing effectiveness of these internal controls is reviewed by the Board’s Audit & Risk Committee on a regular basis. The Company maintains appropriate standards of corporate governance in order to conduct its business in a prudent and well organised
manner. The Board’s approach is based on the principles and provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code) published by the Financial Reporting Council. The Board’s philosophy is to comply with the Code where it applies to the Company, and this is reviewed annually by the Board. 

Employee matters

The New Homes Group seeks to attract great people and make sure they are highly engaged in an environment where they can perform to high expectations and have the opportunity for a long, rewarding and fulfilling career.   

In order to help achieve this, the Company seeks direct feedback from its workforce on areas such as leadership, reward, trust,
respect, well-being and communication. The Company carries out employee engagement surveys periodically, in which all employees are invited to
participate.  The results of such surveys enable the Board to make decisions about where to focus attention to best effect.  In particular, following the most recent survey a Diversity and Inclusion group aimed at ensuring that the Company’s policies and procedures continue to ensure that The New Homes Group supports a diverse and inclusive workplace. The Board also includes groups of employees in such activities.

The Company has a number of policies and practices in place to help ensure that the working environment encourages trust, respect, recognition and good communication. These include, for example, structured career pathways, dignity at work, equal opportunities and a well embedded health, safety and welfare policy. In addition, current projects include promoting a diverse and inclusive culture, and training to support mental health awareness.  Remuneration structures are designed to reward high performance.  The Company’s modern slavery policy supports the objectives of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, further details of which can be found on the Company’s website. Company policies are reviewed and monitored on an ongoing basis to ensure they remain appropriate and fit for purpose. 

The Company is committed to ensuring that there are no instances of bribery or corruption throughout the business. Company policies exist, drafted in line with best practice, to prohibit the offering, giving, solicitation or the acceptance of any bribe to or from any person or company by any individual employee, agent or other person or body acting on behalf of the Company. The policies are readily available for employees to view on the internal intranet and employees are required to receive annual refresher training to ensure they can recognise and prevent the use of bribery. 

Social matters

The Company is firmly committed to delivering good outcomes for all customers. This means ensuring that the range of products and services offered meet the needs of customers, that the ‘end to end’ processes for delivering these services are appropriate and effective, and that our people always have our customers’ best interests at heart.   Management seek to develop and maintain this ethos within the culture of the business overall.

The Company has supported Funding Neuro – whose aim is to accelerate the development of new treatments for many of the most serious neurological conditions – for over five years through a number of individual, company-wide and head office function fundraising efforts. These range from dress down days, raffles and bake sales, to employees taking part in national events such as the Yorkshire Three peaks challenge.

The Company continues to support EACH – East Anglian Children’s Hospices to fund a brand new family room at The Nook: a comfortable, well-equipped, homely space which will allow families to stay with their children at the hospice whenever they need to. Whether families feel anxious about leaving their child alone for the first time during a short break, or need privacy to say good-bye and grieve, the family room at the nook will act as a safe and supportive environment.

The Company also participates in supporting national charitable events.

Environmental matters

The Board recognises that, as a responsible business, it has an obligation to operate in a manner that minimises the Company’s impact on the environment. The Company operates in a sector that has a relatively low carbon footprint, however it follows relevant environmental legislation in carrying out its business; and Company policy is to seek to minimise its contribution to environmental damage and maximise its contribution to safe recycling and reprocessing of waste materials.

The Company’s Environmental Policy outlines the ways in which the Company reduces the use of paper, utilises recycling options, reduces pollution and levels of energy use.  Initiatives such as the progressive reduction in company car CO2
emissions, the replacement of lighting with low energy units (e.g. LED spot lights and panels) and the roll out of smart electricity and gas meters are examples of the Company’s commitment to operating in an environmentally sustainable way.  

For further details around Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR), refer to the parent company accounts as detailed in note 21.

Business relationships

The Company closely monitors all of its business relationships in order to allow it to provide its customers with excellent
service across the range of services offered. It assesses, on an ongoing basis, the risks of adverse impact on its customers, people and the environment in  which the Company operates as a result of these relationships, or as a result of its policies.

Relationships with key suppliers are closely monitored to ensure services are being provided in line with the terms of documented agreements.  Performance of key suppliers, along with associated risks to the Company and the environment are regularly assessed with options for improvement considered where available.  Regular reviews of adherence to key policies, such as Modern Slavery and GDPR are undertaken.

Board members and Senior Managers are engaged when negotiating terms with key suppliers and will often attend strategic review meetings to guide the future approach with that supplier.

The Company’s services are primarily delivered through its face to face advisor network, with support from centralised customer service teams who help ensure the delivery of positive customer outcomes. Customer interactions are underpinned by a range of proactive communications and online tools which support and inform customers by providing them with timely updates, useful guides and visibility of their transaction at each stage of the home buying and selling journey.

The Company actively engages with its customers at key points during their transactions, through review platforms and customer care teams, to measure and maintain the quality of its service delivery.  The Company continues to support industry initiatives that seek to improve and speed up the home buying process for the benefit of customers and other key stakeholder groups.

Decision making

The Board meets quarterly and makes decisions which promote the success of the Company and its stakeholders.  Proposals are discussed in detail and approved by the Board which ensures key decisions comply with the risk management framework detailed below. 

  • The annual corporate plan was approved following a robust and comprehensive review process.  It was decided the plan would promote the success of the Company.
  • Approved interim dividends – Meeting shareholder dividend expectations is a top priority to ensure the funds are able to benefit the wider Connells Group.  The corporate plan indicates the dividend level to be sustainable and still allow the Company to invest in growth.
