Personal Growth

At acdc they are constantly looking at ways they can support the development of their employees and for them it is important that this begins at induction stage. When an individual first joins the company they receive a personalised induction along with a specific initial two week induction plan which is tailored to their needs and helps to support and familiarise them with the company and the role that they will be performing. The induction programme also includes time spent with acdc's products in a shopfloor environment. Once the initial two week induction has concluded there is a review with the Line Manager, additional training needs are discussed and identified and the HR Department are notified accordingly to ensure that any relevant training takes place. acdc conduct annual appraisals with all their employees which enables them to identify the learning and development requirements of all their staff as well as any skills not utilised or additional contributions that they can make to the business. All requirements are extracted into a master training plan which is monitored, reviewed and appropriate training sourced. On the job training and learning has a large role at acdc as their products are designed in-house and a large element of what they do is bespoke. To assist with this acdc arrange in-house Lunch and Learn sessions where employees can learn about their products, how they work, what's involved and any Design and Technical aspects that they feel would be beneficial for their employees to learn about.

acdc actively encourage team building events to foster interdepartmental awareness, cross functional departmental activities and improve communication. Examples of different events and sizes include the acdc annual company conference where all employees are taken off site to a nearby hotel for the afternoon and evening and this is fully funded by the company. The format for the conference includes a review of the previous year and a look ahead to the company's key goals and objectives in the forthcoming year. This enables key messages to be communicated consistently to all the employees. At the end of this year's conference acdc held a team activity which involved devising an advert for their lighting products which resulted in greater knowledge sharing, communication and better relationships from this fun team activity. Once the conference and team building activity has ended they provide a buffet, free bar and disco for all employees to enjoy and discuss the afternoon's activities or any other questions or comments they may have in a relaxed, informal environment, which encourages improved communication and awareness, Additional team building activities include the sponsoring of company netball and football teams, an annual Christmas Partly, Family BBQ, Running and Cycling Clubs, various charity events including Movember and the Burnley 10K, as well as Go Karting and other activities. acdc also hold formal team building events for their Senior Managers and leaders of the business to improve teamworking, strategy, direction and communication.

acdc prides itself on developing relationships with its employees and listening to them. They actively encourage open and honest communication and employee involvement. At acdc they have an open door policy and all their employees are encouraged to raise any suggestions, improvements, ideas or concerns that they may have and bring them to the attention of their Manager during 1-2-1's or via other conversations or email, the Engagement Team via the Engagement email address or Suggestion Box, or the CEO. By actively encouraging suggestions, ideas and listening to their employees a member of the Despatch team came up with an idea to improve the packaging and labelling of their products when being shipped. acdc worked with them to put together a business case for a new piece of machinery including the cost of the machine, new banding tape, training and potential cost savings on implementation. The idea and plan was well received and was implemented. The employee was rewarded and recognised for his efforts and this promoted further ideas and suggestions from other employees.
