One of the services offered by business consultancy Appleyards is “uncertainty management”, and the Horsham-based company knows how to reassure its own staff too. It grew last year from 68 to 104 employees, who are excited about where it is going (an 83% positive score) and feel they can contribute to its success (84%). Jobs are excellent for personal growth (86%), and there is no limit to how much people can learn and grow (73%). There are whole-company training and development days, and professional coaching and support in taking qualifications is offered. A company value is to act with integrity and staff say chief executive Colin Morrell runs the business on sound moral principles (83%), and that Appleyards makes a positive difference to the world (67%).
