My Company

77% of staff agreed

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

The fortnightly Head Office Huddle run by the company's CEO and exec team allows the company to share news from product launches to sales figures in an open forum and casual setting. Similarly, quarterly cross-functional Listening Groups occur where colleagues share thoughts on topics and voice concerns. The CEO meets with each head office team/department every 6 weeks to discuss key topics and listen to any concerns. The company use a variety of methods to communicate with their 242 stores including, ChocSource , postal packs and the Retail Managing Director uses a voicemail system to all stores for key messages. Head of Operations runs quarterly factory briefs to all employees across the 24/7 operation and also sends out a fortnightly newsletter containing news,blogs and competitions. Educational displays are set up in the canteen and reception to enhance learning and encourage employee discussion. For example, “From cracking the cocoa pods to chomping the choc” run by 7 cocoa experts from Cargill to educate employees on the cocoa trail from bean to boxed chocolates. The mock shop displays new products and promotions so colleagues in head office are aware of what the shoppers are experiencing in store. The Factory Tours programme has been running for 4 years where employees who are trained as Tour Guides take great pride in voluntarily sharing the factory experience with fellow colleagues. They also benefit from the cross functional teamwork that is an integral part of the factory tours programme.
