Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

66% of staff agreed

I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

Clive is accessible to all staff and still has a hands-on-approach to projects, working side-by-side with staff and clients to keep him fully in-touch with their needs and requirements. Clive makes a special effort to 'walk the office floor' to find out about staff on a personal level and to foster a family atmosphere throughout the organisation. Clive leads from the front and is the official communicator for both good and bad news demonstrating his leadership approach focussed on openness and trust. He is the first to send emails congratulating staff on their promotion or individual efforts in gaining awards such as NVQs, MRICS and MSc.

Leadership

86% of staff agreed

I feel that my manager talks openly and honestly with me

Arcus employees are wholly involved in projects concerning upgrading homes for various Housing Association clients. In this respect they are an integral part of providing decent affordable homes for people across the UK. Each employee also has the opportunity to volunteer for a charity of their own choosing for one day each year to help and support in any way they want. Offices are able to take a working day out to support specific initiatives in their local community if there is something they want to get involved with. Arcus have signed up to ProHelp which allows Arcus to commit their professional time as Project Managers, Architects, Building Surveyors and Cost Managers to making a difference in their local community by providing free advice and professional support. For example, we gave 250 hours of professional time to assist the development of a Community Centre and Synthetic sports pitch in Droylsden, Manchester. The centre will be used by various community groups as well as providing a learning centre for local adults and others within the community.
