Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

96% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

All managers at Zen are enrolled onto a Living Leader programme. The programme is very different to other programmes, it looks at the individual as a whole, rather than the person in work. It explores empowerment, responsibility, appreciation and communication – all qualities for helping people to build powerful relationships with everyone they meet and speak to, both inside and outside work. Due to the huge success and feedback, this is now being rolled out company wide.
