HARD WORK AND great results don't have to be at the expense of having a good time along the way. That is the firm belief of managing director David Clubb and he puts it into action at Tate, a Luton-based recruiter that fills office support roles. As a result, the strongly female workforce — 127 women and just 20 men — report that their colleagues are fun to work with (86% positive). Part of the Impellam Group of companies, Tate provides an assistance helpline for anyone dealing with stress, backed up by encouragement to take time out to deal with the cause. Staff feel that their manager would be quick to respond if they showed signs of being under too much pressure (83%), saying bosses care for them as individuals (90%). As part of its VolunTate scheme, employees can take a paid day off to support a charity of their choice and Clubb regularly gets involved with fundraising at the 30 branches. Staff say he runs the firm on moral principles (92%, a top-20 ranking). Tate invested £220,500 in its trainee programme last year, which gives people with no prior experience in the industry the opportunity to begin a career. Employees believe they gain valuable experience from their job (87%). www.impellam.com

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

98% of staff agreed

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

Open communication and accessibility to the senior team are key within Tate. Through spending time in the branch network and asking for feedback in terms of what's working and what should change there is an environment of continuous improvement. Everyone has a voice and opinions and ideas are valued. The Regional Directors hold a weekly conference call to share news and updates and send out a weekly update highlighting achievements and performance. The values at Tate are not just something written on a piece of paper, or in the Boardroom, they are actively practised in the business, and there is an expectation within Tate that all employees, including Senior Management, demonstrates them at all times. They ran a survey earlier this year about values and engagement in the business to identify people's concerns and issues. The results of this survey were shared from the senior management team addressing all of the questions and providing solutions and answers to ensure everyone feels their opinion is valuable to the business. The CEO lives the brand and the culture with a capability of making the vision a reality and he is always very visible and accessible within the business, working from each branch and constantly asking for feedback. His style is very inclusive and he build strong relationships with all employees. He has a sense of humour and appreciates that hard work and gaining results don't have to be to the detriment of fun along the way. David is very highly regarded and respected in the business, very approachable, open and interested in everyone. He is results oriented, but ensures great customer satisfaction is at the forefront of everything Tate do.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
