The senior management team actively look for ways to embrace and show their dedication and commitment to the staff and Group as a whole. The Executive Team have an open door policy and many chose to regularly work out in the open plan space so they are visible and approachable to staff. Further the Executive Team meet monthly to discuss the business and the current big topics, following these meetings the Executive communicate to all staff via e-newsletter and in team meetings on what was discussed, celebrating the successes as well as advising any actions being taken to address issues. Further, the Executive supports the Best Companies initiatives by getting involved/participating in the desk hops, email free days and meeting free week. Recently a ‘Meet the Directors’ induction day took place in October. All new entrants who joined the Group this financial year were invited to the all-day event in Head Office. The initiative was hosted by the CEO and involved a number of presentations by the Directors and Executive Team. The aim of the day was for the Directors to meet the new entrants and for the new starters to gain more information about the different Director’s roles and responsibilities and the parts of the business that they are responsible for. It is an initiative that the Group are keen to undertake twice a year so that new starters get the opportunity to let the Directors know what it feels like to be a new entrant.
