The organisation employ's over 120 people plus temporary staff, all of which follow five core principles on a daily basis: Passionate; Honest; Innovative; Ethical; Supportive; and Professional.

To ensure that these principles are continuously followed, the organisation have them embedded on intranet sliders and on department walls. They also introduce them at on-boarding for new colleagues.
Ellison's ask employees to give examples of how they have lived these principles in 1-2-1 meetings and appraisals as a way for employees to showcase their continued efforts.

As a way of saying thank you to all employees for their efforts, Ellison's have improved their benefits package. Employees have 35 days holiday, and are closed for over a week at Christmas. They have discounted health cash plans, paid leave for medical appointments and four weeks sick pay for all employees.
