Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

86% of staff agreed

I have a great deal of faith in the person leading this organisation

All Leith's managers, supervisors and senior managers have an open brief to reward individuals who make an outstanding contribution over the course of the year, an example of this is when they have given these hard workers/achievers a dinner or night away with their partner. Over and above this, the company have a long standing and humorous awards night at their Christmas party where all staff have nominated the awards categories and then vote for those they feel should win them. It's entirely democratic and often very revealing ensuring that those who are often unsung get the recognition they are due.

Personal Growth

91% of staff agreed

My work is an important part of my life

In addition to putting their star performers through the Cello Academy which Leith is a part of, they have regular training sessions at the agency where they bring in external suppliers to give their people all they need to know about print production, the latest developments in technololgy including mobile, Smart TV, tablets and social media. Every year Leith run two formal appraisal processes, one in June and one in December. These appraisal forms help to monitor performance and identify what development is needed for their people to reach even greater heights. Finally their Zeitgeist programme where they establish cross agency teams is a real enabler for their people when it comes to development of products, their pricing and distribution.

Leadership

77% of staff agreed

My manager shares important knowledge and information with me

In addition to lively Summer and Christmas parties for all staff Leith also hold a Friday night special once every two months on their barge moored in the Water of Leith. The purpose of this is for everyone to let their hair down, enjoy some free drinks - our Leader assumes role of cocktail shaker and maker at the bar and free food. It's always a hog roast. The social committee, a powerful force at the agency, have run these evenings under a multitude of themes including this one for Halloween.
