Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

95% of staff agreed

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

Parasol has an annual motivational plan setting out a variety of special, entertaining events/activities for staff to look forward to throughout the year. They ask volunteers from across the business to help come up with ideas for events and take ownership of planning and running the activities on the day. Parasol's customer service team celebrated Customer Service week with team activities and a competition to come up with a bright idea to make their customers love Parasol even more. They promoted a bit of healthy competition amongst teams in their health and wellbeing/sports week.

Leadership

90% of staff agreed

I have a great deal of faith in the person leading this organisation

The Chief Executive believes that Parasol's most important asset is the people. He gets a kick out of seeing people developing and performing to the best they can be because he recognises that each individual success leads to an even more successful future for Parasol. On occasions where a team is out of the office at team building events for example and the department is being operated by a skeleton staff, the Chief Executive regularly mucks in, emerging from his office to answer phones and respond to queries normally picked up by the team. This really builds morale amongst those looking on.

My Team

88% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Everyone at Parasol has free membership to the local gym, located very close to the office. The membership provides full access to the gym, swimming and classes at any time. They have a factsheet dedicated to exercise and lots of hints and tips on the intranet. As part of Parasol's charity fundraising they promote and support get up and go activities such as the triathlon and starlight walks. As part of Parasol's health and well being week they also arranged a pedometer challenge where everyone received a pedometer and were given a challenge to hit the recommended daily number of steps and clock up more steps than colleagues in the process.
