THE POLICY OF treasuring staff at Pandora began with its first employee, Winnie Enevoldsen, the wife of founder Per. “She had to be treated well,” says Peter Andersen, the president for western Europe, wryly. The jewellery manufacturer and retailer, famed for its charm bracelets, began in Copenhagen in 1982 and operates in more than 100 countries. The 271 Pandora Jewellery UK staff are based at sleek headquarters in Marylebone, London. Of the 200 British stores, nine are owned and operated by the firm — the others are part of its thriving franchise business. Work is considered an important part of life for employees, who score this measure 84% positive, a top-20 result. Simone Esposito, the assistant manager at the Marble Arch shop, loves being at a company on the up. “It's an amazing feeling, that enthusiasm,” he says. “It's different when you work somewhere that's doing so well, growing so fast and you're growing with it.” Emilia Merola started as a sales associate five years ago. She is now a field visual merchandiser, responsible for the look of five stores, and relishes the responsibility. “If you work hard in Pandora, this is what it can give you,” she says. “This place gives you all the tools and support you need, and a lot of guidance.” Staff believe that the experience gained at Pandora is good for their future (82%, ranking 24th). www.pandoragroup.com

By using animals to represent the PANDORA values, the company provide employees with something tangible to help demonstrate them. They have a figurine called Winnpier who is an amalgamation of all three values: the strong legs and tail from the lion, the large heart and long neck from the giraffe and the wings from the bumble bee. Winniper represents PANDORA's values and the behaviours that they require all their employees to demonstrate. The company launched their values called ‘PANDORA Life' in 2011 through large events within each region of PANDORA. Employees were taken out of the office to a beautiful location where the history of the company and the relevance and importance of its values were explained. PANDORA award prizes to employees for demonstrating the PANDORA Life values in their daily work and also at company events and parties. The values also have been incorporated into the company's Personal Development Reviews and employees must think about how they relate to their particular position. Objectives are then set incorporating the values.
