STAFF WORKING FOR Mott MacDonald, the management, engineering and development consultancy, certainly aren't short of a challenge. Their work ranges from designing bridges and buildings to securing and supervising finance and project management. Formed in 1989 through the merger of two engineering firms with roots in the early 20th century, Mott MacDonald has grown with 45 acquisitions over the past two decades and now operates in the energy, environment, health, education and communications sectors. The second largest firm of its kind headquartered in Britain, Mott MacDonald's portfolio of 12,000 current projects includes the world's largest tunnel in America, a 40-hectare urban quarter devoted to arts and culture in Hong Kong, post-conflict reconstruction in Southern Sudan and Afghanistan, and the £10m central Felixstowe coastal protection scheme. Staff give it a top score (75% positive) for making a difference to the world in our employee questionnaire, and say the experience they gain is valuable for their future (74%). Run on sound values by chairman Keith Howells, (73%, a top 10 score), Mott MacDonald is a wholly employee-owned company which returns everything it earns to the 5,131 people who work for it through a monthly performance pay scheme worth an additional 6.5% on top of basic pay last year. Staff are also invited to buy shares once they reach middle management. About one in five of the workforce is now a shareholder. Team spirit is strong, with an annual sports day for the past 23 years that had 400 staff taking part last year. Workers care about each other (75%) and are not disruptive (71%, sixth). People say colleagues don't use intimidation to get what they want (70%, in fourth place). Mott MacDonald gets its highest scores for Giving Something Back, ranking fifth overall, with projects such as the reconstruction of a school in Bangladesh destroyed by a cyclone. The firm cares about the environment (76%) and does plenty to protect it (73%), say staff. Their work is an important part of their lives (77%). www.mottmac.com

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

85% of staff agreed

My work is an important part of my life

Mott MacDonald utilises two primary groups to listen to the views of employees. To promote professional excellence, a Young Professional Excellence (YPE) network exists across all of the company's business units. This network creates a learning culture among the company's younger staff. YPE promotes two way communications and ensures that the views of their young professionals are fed back to senior management. As the YPE networks are representative of Mott MacDonald's business units, the Groups can be targeted depending on the nature of the query on which the company is seeking views. The other channel which MacDonald uses is staff councils. These allow effective two-way communication between the company and staff at all levels. In doing so, they provide a forum in which company policy can be explained to staff. They are held on a quarterly basis and minutes are posted on the company's intranet to ensure all staff have access to on going discussions.

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

The senior management team at Mott MacDonald has produced a video called Moving Forward, aimed at giving their staff an insight into the opportunities and challenges the company is currently facing and where they expect to be going as a company for the next five years. The video started with a reminder of how the company fared in the past 12 months and looked at the new reality impacting the business and the challenges it brings. To make it as easy as possible for everyone to see the video, the company hosted the production on their internal e-learning site as well as making it available on DVD for staff outside the office. To ensure maximum awareness was generated for the production, an email was sent out from the Group's chairman well as notices appearing on the intranet encouraging all staff to view it. Feedback from staff showed this approach was welcomed and included positive comments about how sincerely and well the senior management came across.

Senior leader comments...

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.
