What is it like to work for CIM

Employees are measured against CIM’s values of being collaborative, passionate, purposeful, relevant and responsible. The CIM introduced a Question Time-style format, so staff can question a panel on business performance and progress. CEO Chris Daly sits with staff at lunch to hear their views.

The Management Fundamentals programme has six modules, covering people management, performance management, leading change and managing as a coach. CIM have also introduced a programme of continuous management that links organisational strategy and goals to personal objectives.
Flexible working and compressed hours, so people can buy extra holidays, have improved wellbeing. All employees and their families have 24/7 access to telephone support and counselling for issues such as stress, money and relationships. On site, there’s a ‘think zone’ that eliminates noise and distraction.
