If an understanding employer is what you are looking for, recruitment consultancy Marks Sattin is just the job. Football fans who were working during the World Cup were able to watch the action from their desks on widescreen televisions, there is a free bar every Friday night and employees' children are welcome in the office. Eighteen years' experience in recruitment for accountancy, finance, taxation and management consultancy roles means that David Sattin, the vice chairman, knows a thing or two about attracting the right kind of employee. Staff find Sattin's leadership inspiring, giving an 83% score in our survey. An overall result of 80% in the Leadership section shows that staff are happy with their interaction with management. There is a hands-on culture and bosses can even be seen manning reception. All directors and managers at Marks Sattin have been promoted from within and are aware of the importance of staff development. Staff say that working for the company is good for their own growth (80%). Despite the long hours that go hand-in-hand with the recruitment industry, staff at Marks Sattin say their managers regularly express appreciation for a good job done, the 88% score bettered in just four other SMEs. Managers also motivate staff to give their best (82%, sixth highest). Company awards are voted for by all staff, not just senior management. Staff believe their managers care about them as individuals, returning an impressive 81% score. This is reflected in the tailored prizes awarded. One employee who has a young family won a trip to Center Parcs, while a lucky football fan was treated to a trip to watch Real Madrid. It is personal touches such as these that make staff love working for the company (82%). Barcelona and Prague have been recent destinations for the annual weekend away. This year, staff are looking forward to staying in a five-star hotel in Monte Carlo, with drinks and dinner included.

My team is fun to work with

Following the Marks Sattin Mid-Year Review, employees participated in 'The Apprentice Challenge', followed by drinks and snacks. This was a half day event that saw all Marks Sattin employees in the UK and Ireland come together in London to celebrate the company's achievements and participate in an Apprentice themed challenge. Employees were split into groups and tasked with appointing a team leader, then followed clues to different areas of London and carried out challenges to earn points. Each team was given £50 for any purchases required and evidence such as photos and receipts had to be supplied for each challenge. Prizes included bar tabs and dinner at Michelin star restaurant for the entire team.

My Company

92% of staff agreed

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

Managers conduct employee reviews twice annually to understand employees' ongoing needs. Managers lead by example regarding ongoing development and actively encourage non-management employees to harness all the training and development opportunities available to them. Managers offer on-the-job mentoring outside of set hours and/or appraisals to continuously give and receive feedback. Managers actively encourage all employees to get involved in CSR initiatives and lead by example on this. The same goes for social sports and other social activities outside work hours.
