Leadership

80% of staff agreed

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

They are very passionate about supporting charities and they try to support as many causes as possible to ensure that there is something of interest for all employees. In support of their local community they volunteer in local schools and local campaigns including Business Action for Homelessness. They try to use their special skills in filming when they hold their evenings for the homeless. The first part of the evening provides a training session on the 'do's' and 'don't s' of an interview and then they film people individually practicing doing an interview. They try to provide a fun and unusual training event for the homeless but also enable their employees who film everyday to get involved with the charity in an area that they feel they can contribute. An Environmental Committee meets on a monthly basis to discuss ideas and processes for reducing their environmental impact. Discarded cooking oil is turned to bio-diesel and runs their vehicles.
