Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

93% of staff agreed

I feel that my manager talks openly and honestly with me

Managers undergo a five-day leadership development programme. Personal goals are set and measured each year or more frequently as appropriate. Discussion between leaders and their managers were the keystone of support offered through the pandemic. The frequency of conversations increased while working from home and ideas were gathered and implemented.

Leadership

76% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

The pandemic was a catalyst for a significant increase in communication, particularly to deliver fast information direct to every employee. It initiated “All Hands” calls to explain the company approach to working from home, coping with home schooling, furlough and temporary reductions in working hours.

Fair Deal

52% of staff agreed

I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

Solid Solutions offers an end-of-year company bonus to maximise achievement in the final months of the year. Benefits for staff include free dental and life insurance and staff discounts.
