Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

90% of staff agreed

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

The Principal and Senior Management Team get out and about and ‘walk the floor' a symbolic act that conveys their philosophy,of employee engagement rather than hiding themselves away. The above generates immense respect and employee engagement to the highest level, as staff are listened to and ideas and feedback, which gives credence to the ethos that Selby College staff are valued.

My Team

79% of staff agreed

People in my team go out of their way to help me

The Principal in Selby College is focused on people, which makes him an outstanding leader. Instead of seeing people as one of the many priorities, they always put the emphasis on people issues first. They are able to see matters holistically, acting in a way that makes a difference to the immediate recipient and how they can further create an outstanding atmosphere in the workplace, that will not only benefit staff but feed through to learners. In the current climate of economic uncertainty the Principal at Selby College demonstrates their personal integrity, in addition to their leadership ability to inspire trust in their staff, through an open door policy, where any member of staff can approach him to discuss any matter at anytime. Also, they regularly communicate with all staff members, asking how they are and talk through any problems. This could be done over a coffee or an informal conversation. There are few organisations where any staff member can talk to the Principal without an appointment or fear of reprisal. However, the above is testament to positive culture the Principal has created, which is the opposite of many organisations.
