Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

54% of staff agreed

I am paid fairly for the work that I do relative to others within this organisation

Triodos provides a variety of ways to support co-worker well-being. They provide free organic fruit supplied by one of their customers for all co-workers to help themselves. They have a £50p.a. well-being allowance for all co-workers. This can be used towards anything to do with the co-worker's well-being and can be attuned to their interests, for example it has been used for gym membership, massages and bike equipment. They have internal clubs/societies where like minded people can get together and share a passion, such as their book club, craft club and netball club. They have begun lunchtime learning sessions where co-workers can learn a new skill in their lunch break. Their recent lunchtime learning is over an 8 week period -1 hour per week and involves 20 co-workers exploring the 8 Habits of Happiness. This is run by a positive psychologist from the Happy City Initiative. This is the first time such a course has been run at an organisation level so they are pioneering new ground with Happy City. Future planned activities involve learning languages, musical instruments, crafts, and being a DJ! These lunchtime learnings will all be run by their co-workers, who are keen to share their skills.

Leadership

93% of staff agreed

I feel that my manager talks openly and honestly with me

Triodos Bank continually gives something back to the local and wider community through their very existence and business model. They only finance organisations that can demonstrate a positive impact on the environment, society and culture around them locally and globally. Through their lending and customer relationships, co-workers and customers are aware of their local and wider social engagement and impact. The point is it's part of their DNA as opposed to a CSR exercise. As such, they find that both co-workers who are already socially minded, and those who are less so, after spending time working at Triodos almost become more engaged with their local and broader communities simply by osmosis. Community participation, engagement and social impact by co-workers is encouraged, and supported by the bank though away days, social events, customer visits. Their co-workers take part in local sporting teams pitched against other organisations. Many co-workers volunteer at local organisations, and their procurement processes seek to use local, community and/or fair trade suppliers where possible, for example the twice-weekly local organic fruit delivery, the fair-trade tea and coffee supplied for co-worker and visitor refreshments.
