CCS Media is a technology products and solutions reseller with over 37 years of experience across the UK and beyond. Based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, it delivers first-class IT solutions to organisations of every kind through its network of 15 offices and via its warehouse and logistics configuration centres.

The 500-plus employees at CCS work with 2,000-plus manufacturer partners and sell more than 1.3m products to 12,000 customers. Recognised in the Sunday Times FastTrack 250 as one of the UK's fastest growing companies, in 2019 the agency achieved revenues in excess of £242m.

In a nutshell, CCS Media has unrivalled nationwide scale for supply and service, matched with the comfort of local presence.

By nature of its technological business, CCS Media actively participates in a circular economy that aims at eradicating environmental waste – something it promotes to its client base.

Initiatives to drive automation have the intention of eliminating the printing of documents in certain departments by 2022. By the end of 2021 CCS will contract with renewable gas and electricity suppliers at its headquarters. A plastic-free pledge is already in place, and 75% of the company fleet is made up of electric/hybrid vehicles.

Employees are encouraged to take the raw materials at their disposal – operational capability, finance, technology knowledge, and customer context – to shape the best possible outcome for every project. CCS invested more than £1m in new technology to support an agile working policy for work/life balance as part of its sustainability and environmental strategy 12 months prior to any lockdown.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

78% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

Senior leaders communicate with all staff on a weekly and monthly basis to share business and market updates in person, if virtually. This includes open and live Q&A and feedback sessions, with full employee participation. An open-door policy has been extended to virtually directly access MD James Hardy and his team.

My Team

86% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Prior to the pandemic, CCS Media had already implemented virtual employee group “huddles” every morning that took in direct team members – and with senior leaders periodically joining the calls on a rolling basis. This is replicated throughout the business for management.

Wellbeing

79% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

The company organises multiple weekly social and wellness initiatives – mindfulness, fitness and social – for employees and their children, who get treats like colouring books sent out. Hampers with a choice of contents are distributed to people's homes for individuals and families to enjoy.
