Avanta recognise the importance of ensuring that all workloads are manageable and achievable for the benefit of both parties. This is supported through regular evaluations of all roles across the business and performance reviews conducted by the Line Managers. Avanta also have annual recognition awards for their staff who 'make a positive difference', voted by the employees so they can publically reward their staff for a job well done.

In November 2011 Avanta held a Managers Conference for all Line Managers across the business. It was at this event when they officially launched their new vision and values, thus it provided the perfect opportunity for the Chairman and Managing Director to be clear about the strategy and the future direction of the business. All the Managers broke out into groups to discuss how they would practically implement the vision and values. This enabled the Managers to think creatively and share ideas with their peer group. Avanta also had an external motivational speaker at the conference, who spoke about their personal journey, to inspire their Managers to strive to excel in everything they do. In the evening the Senior Leadership team hosted a dinner and dance for all the delegates. This was particularly enjoyable, as the Managers were able to socialise outside of business hours and network with their peer group from different parts of the organisation.

Fair Deal

Avanta has a monthly team-based incentive scheme that seeks to reward employees collectively for achieving increases in performance. The main aim of the scheme to increase the number of job starts that can be sustained into claimed outcomes and sustainments. Each branch is set a monthly target based on a benchmark of their previous three months' performance. Performance is measured by the number of job starts, including first and subsequent jobs, as well as the number of starts on the Enterprise programme. In each of the five regions, the branch that demonstrates the highest level of improvement against their benchmark will receive the incentive. Measuring improvement on performance means that small branches have an equal chance of winning compared to their large branches. Each eligible member of a winning branch will receive £400.
