  • Considering - recognising what you're asking from people and ensuring it's realistic and achievable. Supporting people in achieving their tasks. Recognising and rewarding a job well done
  • Conversing - opening the channels for effective two-way communication. Sharing information in an open and honest way and being open to receiving information from others
  • Caring - understanding that people have a life outside of work, respecting their time for family, friends and outside interests / hobbies. Showing an interest in them as individuals and demonstrating care for their needs

We believe participation in the programme helps us to attract quality staff who are looking for a long, progressive career rather than just a job, as well as attract suppliers who want to work with us and customers who want to buy from us. Our employees feel engaged and inspired by what they do and the Best Companies programme is pivotal in enabling us to celebrate our successes whilst also recognising tangible goals for the future so that we can continue to be one of the UK’s best places to work.
