Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

47% of staff agreed

This organisation is run on strong values / principles

Particular work this year has been on the carbon footprint of staff travel. All under desk bins are removed and replaced by recycling centres. Also a "Not In The Bin" scheme to recycle unwanted equipment is in place. They have been running a sustainability training course for all staff for over ten years. This not only addresses specifics but also deals with the broader context so people really understand the issues.

My work is an important part of my life

Staff are involved in regular events held by the Chief Executive. There is also a rolling piece on the front page of the intranet and a rolling Chief Exec notice board on which staff can comment. She operates in an open and honest style, not only giving direction but explaining why that is the direction and is as open and honest with bad news as with good. She demonstrates that she really cares about the organisation's mission and is seen to be a member of the team, sleeves rolled up delivering.
