GRAND SPAM WEEK at this healthcare recruitment consultancy wasn't a nightmare but an incentive scheme setting staff targets and offering prizes such as iPads and a flatscreen television. The 54 employees of this London firm feel they can make a difference here (an 87% positive score). Deadlines are realistic (80%) and there's strong team spirit (the highest factor score of 85% was for questions on My Team). Working with colleagues certainly gives people a buzz (also 85%). www.medicarefirst.co.uk

Featured Workplace Factors

My Team

83% of staff agreed

This job is good for my own personal growth

Managers are able to experience the highs and the lows because they operate a hands on management style. Encourage and motivate their teams to win the quarterly incentive awards. Engage team members in how their input will benefit the Company's profits and how their behaviour/skills will lead to the Company becoming the best practice model within the recruitment industry. Managers would not ask their team to undertake a task which they would not do themselves. Encourage, motivate and provide their team with the skills and information to achieve their set targets and to acknowledge their efforts and outcomes.

My Company

93% of staff agreed

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

Medicare First believe the key to ensuring the wellbeing of their employees is to offer a strong inclusive leadership within an atmosphere of professionalism, fairness, respect, fun, friendliness coupled with reward and recognition for a job well done. The open plan office environment and the hands on approach of their senior management team enables them to communicate, understand and work effectively with the employees to demonstrate they are the company's most valuable asset.

Leadership

91% of staff agreed

I feel that my manager talks openly and honestly with me

In March of this year Medicare First took part in a fund raising event for "Red Nose Day". Employees were requested to wear at least one item of red clothing and contribute to the charity. The day was a great success with some very interesting displays of inventive red items of clothing, some of which could only be displayed momentarily! Good fun was had by all and the money raised went to a very worthwhile cause.
