IT IS ALWAYS nice to get a birthday card and it's even better when it comes from the boss. Such gestures are the key to a happy and contented workforce at energy services contractor Production Services Network and help to explain a healthy staff retention rate. Keeping people sweet starts early and new recruits are sent a small gift, while promotions are marked by a letter thanking employees for their efforts. It's no wonder that staff respect their bosses and say chief executive Robert Keiller is an inspiration (82%), ranking fourth for running the company along sound moral principles (88%). He also achieves a top 10 ranking for people having a great deal of faith in him (87%). Employees have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team (79%) and believe that senior managers truly live the values of the organisation (75%). The company's primary business is providing support for customers who operate oil and gas facilities whether that be platforms, pipelines or terminals. Work-life balance is good with core hours of 10am to 4pm and the possibility of fitting your hours into nine days rather than 10 (thereby picking up an extra 20-plus days off a year). There are few signs of pressure at work affecting performance (a 73% score, ranking 21st) or harming concentration (74%, 24th). Nor are there complaints of people being exhausted when they get home (57%, the 10th best score) or of their health suffering because of work (80%). Initiatives at the company include flexible working, a travel insurance scheme, a voluntary healthcare cash plan and a tax-buster travel scheme. Graduates are recruited and developed across both technical and business support disciplines and there is a visible career path. Few staff would chose to leave tomorrow if they had another job offer (77%). Morale is also boosted by subsidised social and sporting events such as touch rugby, visits to spas and pools, a spring ghost walk, a learn-to-make sushi experience, golf coaching and theatre and movie trips. psnworld.com

My Company

My work is an important part of my life

PSN hold a number of fitness actvities throughout the year including the 'Fit 4 2009 Challenge.' This involves measuring the fitness of the participants at the beginning of the programme and then again 8 weeks later. There are 6 areas to check which include body fat, blood pressure aerobic capacity and flexibility. They continue to maintain their 'Healthy Working Lives' programme. The standards criteria give them a framework to develop a strong health strategy within the business. It gives them a means of tackling not only the 'nicer' topics of health such as general fitness, but also the more difficult subjects such as urinary tract cancer, drug and alcohol abuse, stress and mental illness. Although not easy subjects to tackle they continually get wide support to 'lunch & learn' sessions throughout the year with most being over subscribed.

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.
