ALL THE MEN at Mando Group turn into a hirsute “Team ManMo” for a month to grow moustaches for the Movember campaign, supporting men's health charities. The Liverpool IT firm, which creates online applications for businesses, comes second among small companies in our survey for encouraging charitable activities, with a 96% positive score. The 58 employees at Mando Group are impressed with this new entry's social conscience (95%, third). The firm, which has clients such as Jaguar Land Rover and Vodafone, donates 10% of net profits through its charitable foundation and aims high: it wants to transform local and global good causes. Staff feel it makes a positive difference in the world (82%, a top 20 score). Mando Group's four leaders run the company on a sound moral basis (95%, in fourth place), giving equal weight to “digital passion”, commercial performance and principles such as honesty and transparency. Employees say the senior team is good at listening to people rather than simply telling them what to do (87%). There is a new learning and development department, spending almost £2,000 a head each year on training and sponsoring work-related qualifications. Those who have become “accidental managers” are the focus of a recent training drive. Teams operate well together (78%). Everyone works around core hours of 10am to midday and 2pm-4.30pm, so people can create the working day most comfortable for them. Last year the company held its first “play day”, when colleagues got a budget to spend on an unusual project. The results included a range of fruit smoothies and a personal hovercraft, and the firm hopes to make the day an annual fixture.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

100% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

There is a very strong openness to new ideas, approaches and ways of improving the business, with very little bureaucracy or barriers to staff bringing ideas to the Senior Leadership Team and having the opportunity to try them. They conduct an internal staff survey annually, in order to get an idea of employee opinion and seek feedback in improving how they work. As a result of previous year's surveys, they have implemented many organisational changes. Most recently, in 2011 they amended their annual holiday entitlement in order to provide a more attractive package for employees, with new starters beginning on 25 days entitlement instead of the previous 20. They also introduced a company pension scheme which has seen almost a 30% take up in the past 12 months.

Leadership

100% of staff agreed

The leader of this organisation runs this organisation based on sound moral principles

In 2009 they created their charitable foundation, the Mando Group Foundation and in doing so made a commitment to donate 10% of their net profit to charitable causes. They work in partnership with the Community Foundation for Merseyside, who help manage their funds; their vision is to see local community and international causes transformed through their work. The three main areas in which they invest to achieve this vision are: To enhance the education and employability of young people in Merseyside through sharing what they know best - our digital and leadership skills. To work with international charities in developing countries which is voted for annually by staff and each year the majority of their internal fundraising is done in support of this charity. At the end of the year, the final figure is then matched by the Foundation, doubling their employee's efforts and helping to make a real difference in the causes that motivate their staff.
