A free "Proud" water bottle is given to staff at motor dealership Sandicliffe. It reminds them of the company motto "We are Proud", which was introduced last year. The motto signifies that the company takes pride in what it does and is proud of its staff.

Sandicliffe was set up in 1948 and began as a small garage in Stapleford, Nottinghamshire. The family-owned business has grown to five Ford dealerships and two parts-plus sites. The family are active in the business, ensuring it maintains a family feel and everyone works together for success.

The "We are Proud" motto encompasses the company's family values of "passion", "integrity", "customer care", "team work", "respect" and "empowerment". Sandicliffe believes that if staff are living the values, they are proud of themselves, each other and where they work.

Managers discussed what the values meant to them and how they could lead by example. They each chose a way to keep the values alive, such as incorporating them into one-to-one sessions and team meetings. They met staff to relay their decisions.

The company newsletter reported on it, too and, at a "We are Proud" day, staff were given a free lunch and thanked for their work. They were asked to say why they were proud to work for Sandicliffe and their comments have been published on the company's website. "I get up in the morning and want to go to work," said one.

Featured Workplace Factors

Wellbeing

54% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

The company's menopause policy was written by staff and there is a WhatsApp group so they can support each other. In addition, there will be a wellbeing champion at each site. The company also partners with Ben, a charity that supports motor industry employees, and staff with any concerns are referred to it.
Fair Deal

45% of staff agreed

I feel I receive fair pay for the responsibilities I have in my job

Sandicliffe ensures that it pays for a role rather than the person. For example, a technician is paid £24,26 and £28,000, dependant on qualifications. All salaries are checked to make sure they are in line with market rates and staff are paid accordingly. Moves are being made to attract more women to the business.
My Company

88% of staff agreed

All staff were given a "thank you" bonus, a pizza day and a pay rise last year. Employees and managers can nominate a Sandicliffe Star and the winner is given £200, after tax. Easter eggs, chocolates, nights out and gifts are also given for high performance.
