Picture those traders of the 1980s, telephones glued to ears, pens scribbling and mouths shouting. With the help of Trayport's online financial software, things run a little more quietly today. The London-based company provides transactional software to brokers, traders and stock exchanges around the world, serving more than 10,000 clients. Staff, typically software developers, receive excellent benefits and the firm's highest scores are for questions about the fair deal they get, a 71% positive result, ranking in the top 40 on this measure. More than a third of the 82 employees earn more than £45,000 a year and everyone has performance-related pay, free private health and dental care, free gym membership and an employee assistance programme. They also all get a non-contributory pension and staff say they are very happy with pay and benefits (78%) and are fairly paid for their responsibilities (71%). Whatever the markets are doing, people feel good about the direction of the firm, with a lot of excitement about where it is going (85%). Trayport makes sure employees take a break, with 25 days of holiday a year for everyone. The firm offers flexible hours, as well as career breaks. It provides laptops, computers and broadband so that employees can also work from home. Staff aren't exhausted most days on returning home (59%) and are happy with their work and life balance (74%), both top 30 results. Paternity is boosted to two weeks at full pay and maternity leave is six weeks at full pay, 12 on half pay, 33 on the statutory minimum and 13 unpaid. The firm has a low staff turnover at 16% and is reporting a new trend: people might leave, but they keep on coming back.

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

The managers are the people who manage the performance management process for their teams and they are instrumental in keeping this process alive and effective. They have regular catch-ups with their teams outside of performance reviews – this allows them to have an in-depth understanding of what support their team members require. They have absolute discretion in working with their teams to develop their own team culture based on what works for them as individuals and meeting operational requirements of the business. As an organisation, they have a strong culture of personal communication, they have no one manager managing more than 10 people, therefore the personal touch and knowing what is going on their teams is very strong at Trayport. Their office environment has been designed to encourage open communication throughout all teams with space for break-outs, scrums, stand-ups. They are empowered to reward by giving ad hoc thank yous to their team in the form of team dinners, drinks and Amazon vouchers etc.

Giving Something Back

My organisation encourages charitable activities

A memorable event is the annual weekend away, where in the past have visited Malta, Portugal, Jersey and Spain. In September last year they took the whole company away for the weekend to Chewton Glenn hotel in Hampshire. This is of course optional and they had an attendance of 120 people last year. The hotel is a beautiful 5 star hotel set in the New Forest where they hired the whole complex for 2 nights. The weekend included transport to the venue from London, a team building treasure hunt on Friday afternoon, a BBQ in the evening, a company meeting on Saturday morning followed by more team building events, personal time where people had options to do activities such as falconry, golf buggy racing, massages, swimming, archery followed by an evening three course meal and disco. It was a fabulous weekend enjoyed by all and they have received great feedback. They allocate £100 to this event on an annual basis and are very proud to be able to provide this for their employees.

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.
