Hestia House is now the official name of the company’s new home, after HomeLet ran an employee competition to come up with a fitting and inspirational title.
The winning idea came from Jo Weaver, who thought Hestia’s tradition of being the Greek Goddess of hearth and home would be the perfect name for the new offices - as HomeLet help thousands of people move into new rented homes every week. Hestia was also the first born of the Olympian Gods.
Jo was one of three HomeLet employees whose suggested names were shortlisted, and Hestia House was declared the winner after everyone else who works for the company voted for their favourite.
Hestia House is now only weeks away from the developer’s completion, and HomeLet is still on track to make the big move by the end of this year.
Ian Fraser, HomeLet’s Managing Director, said: “It’s wonderful that our new offices have been given an official name, and I am very pleased for Jo who has won free lunch for a year in the new bistro. The name is especially fitting as it not only relates to the support of homes and families, but also the Olympics, which will allow our employees, and the rest of Lincoln, to remember this summer’s event.
“Hestia House is being built to improve service delivery for customers, and allow HomeLet’s talented and dedicated employees to benefit from a modern, state of the art working environment. Each and every team member is instrumental in delivering the best HomeLet service, and we want to make sure they’re also happy at work and have access to the best available facilities.
“Seeing the development of Hestia House is causing real excitement at HomeLet, and as one of the largest employers in the area, we can’t wait to settle into our new home.”
