Hard work pays off for staff and good causes at specialist recruitment firm Quanta Consultancy Services. Employees earn points for doing their day to day job which are converted into pounds donated to the firm's chosen charities. Points are earned by arranging interviews, making calls to clients or placing candidates with multi-national companies and the more effective staff are the more points they earn.

Despite the pandemic Quanta raised £24,000 last year for four organisations: homeless charity DENS, special education school, Thomley, The Swan Youth Project and The Pepper Foundation.

Founded in 1992, Quanta specialises in recruiting worldwide for the life science, renewable energy and ICT & data centre industries. Starting from a small team in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, the private sector operation now has more than 75 employees and opened new offices in Boston and Dublin last October.

Reflecting its “one team” ethos and focus on communication, directors request regular feedback and were keen to make sure all employees had their voice heard on initiatives being considered to protect the business including their willingness to work reduced hours, being put on furlough, and considering pay sacrifices.

Employees are rewarded for meeting four monthly targets set by them and their manager with rewards ranging from an early finish or £25, to lunch with one of directors for consistently meeting them for six months consecutively.

It's commitment to employee development and growing the team from within is reflected in the fact that everyone spends 120 hours a year on training and development.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

94% of staff agreed

I am inspired by the person leading this organisation

Directors sit with the team in the open plan office, often “hotdesking” to enable them to engage with everyone in the business and are also involved in induction and training programmes. Employees are encouraged to ask them questions, share knowledge and give them feedback.

My Company

98% of staff agreed

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

Everyone in the business was sent a thank you letter and a branded advent calendar. In addition, the whole team received a £200 bonus and extra holiday over Christmas and New Year as a token of appreciation from the senior management team.

My Team

95% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Social events to strengthen team bonds have included online escape room, virtual cocktail making and quizzes. The annual end of year awards ceremony went ahead virtually with the firm's directors hand delivering the 18 prizes to the winners, travelling 125 miles in a day to do so.
