Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

87% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Each year Carlson's locations are asked to choose a charity they would like to support throughout the year. They organise their own fun-raising activities around various themes and also collect money around the office. Such activities have been themed around ' The Great British Bake Off', where people baked cakes and brought them in. Slices were sold off and the money all went to the chosen charity. Branches have also run a fancy dress competition and Carlson really give the branches free reign with this to do as they wish.

My Team

86% of staff agreed

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

Last year Carlson introduced Fish and Chip suppers, whereby their SVP and a member of the Leadership Team went to each location in the UK and Ireland network and had an evening of fish and chips and an open discussion forum. Staff members were very open about their likes and dislikes and were encouraged to be honest. The company also have a weekly update and two monthly updates that are sent to the network. The weekly one highlights what has been happening in the network, updates on staff and training and also roles that are available around the network as a whole. For the monthly updates, one is from the SVP and is called 'Catch up with Chris', providing a general business update. The other comes from the Marketing Director and is called 'Assets of the Month'. This informs staff what's new in the marketing world and also what CWT is doing in relation to marketing campaigns. Carlson used to use Yammer but have now changed this to Jive effective 1st January. Jive is a platform whereby staff can share ideas, suggestions, help colleagues and collaborate across a much wider network. People are encouraged to set up groups for different project and topics and use it as the go-to place for peer-to-peer support.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
