Giving Something Back

95% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

The company has participation in the Global Corporate Challenge with www.gettheworldmoving.com. Teams of seven from companies globally participate in the 16-week programme. GCC focuses on encouraging people to increase their daily step count from 3,000 steps a day to 10,000 steps per day. There was a marked increase in lunch time walks, weekend hikes and cycling to work over the summer. They have implemented a technology suite which enables extremely easy home working. Employees have a full range of telephony and video conferencing tools (UCOffice, Skype for Business) and webinar facilities (GoToMeeting) to enable them to work together remotely. Their remote access facilities are second to none, with no tokens/cards required, laptops simply link to employees' broadband with a direct link through to Version 1. Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint tools allow them to share and work together on documents and proposals seamlessly. All of these tools mean that whether an employee is working from home, from a different office or from a hotel, they have the same easy Version 1 technology experience. This considerably reduces stress and time overheads.

My Company

89% of staff agreed

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

The Version 1 Profit Share is paid quarterly to all eligible employees. This is dependent on them achieving quarterly targets on all three sides of the triangle, namely customer satisfaction, profitability and employee engagement. Maintaining the focus and momentum on these quarterly targets has been a key driver of their success. On average 95% of employees meet the eligibility criteria and payments translate into between 20% - 25% of net profit being shared with employees. The profit share scheme remains one of their biggest ways of saying thank you as each employee receives a letter outlining their quarterly profit share and the total for the year to date. In addition, each letter is personally signed by their COO includes some personalised messages. In 2014, they introduced the Version 1 Growth Share Scheme. This is a share scheme which allows managers to share in the company's growth and for them to become real shareholders. This provided them with extra meaning and connection and has led to 25 additional people actively engaged. In addition to paying for employee referrals, they also offer cinema nights, restaurant vouchers and concert tickets to those who refer someone who is interviewed (even if they don't result in a new hire).
