Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

90% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

The company believe their Wellbeing scheme has been their most effective initiative. The scheme focuses on quarterly campaigns, which have in the past covered nutrition, hydration, resilience and physical activity. These campaigns were supported with merchandise to reinforce messages, e.g. water bottles and healthy alternative drinks to tea and coffee. They trained 15 Wellbeing Leaders across the business who have planned and delivered these campaigns. The Wellbeing Leaders recently organised and supported an extension of an existing office hygiene campaign following a successful pilot called Healthy Workplace to their new upgraded offices provided for staff with improved facilities. Following employee feedback, this year they have reviewed how they can refocus their wellbeing campaign to make a bigger impact on staff. Going forward, the company will be holding two dedicated 'wellbeing weeks' a year, jam-packed full of health-focussed events. Their Lean Programme helps staff to improve their productivity, efficiency and quality of services to customers by streamlining processes and cutting out anything that is unnecessary. In addition they offer a long and varied list of flexible benefits that are continually refreshed in consultation with their employees.

People in my team go out of their way to help me

A2Dominion's support for employee development is best evidenced through its continued investment in staff training, initiatives and programmes. Programmes such as the Talent Development Deal have been fully reviewed following feedback from the staff survey, previous cohorts and organisation changes and a new level called ‘Rising Stars' has been introduced in 2015/16 which allows A2Dominion to have an offer aimed at developing management capability of front line colleagues. Courses aimed at ensuring staff develop work related skills and personal attributes continue to be both relevant and highly attended (3283 staff attended classroom training last year, with 96% of staff confirming they had successfully applied learning to their role) and they have been working to increase their portfolio of e-learning to ensure staff are receiving the development needed whilst reducing the time out of the office (25 new courses developed in-house in 2014/15). Furthermore, specific departmental learning programmes have helped increase the personal learning of specific teams, with measures such as increase in competency scores and call coaching rates improved. Finally, the continued offering of both in house qualification programmes (including the CMI Certificate in Management and specific departmental qualifications e.g. IRPM for Leasehold staff), as well as external qualifications offer staff the opportunity to become fully qualified in their area of work with 100% of managers confirming there had been a direct benefit to the team and organisation as a result.
