About Barlows

Leadership

To help the company on their journey of achieving their Mission of exceeding industry Health & Safety standards and Employment Fulfilment levels, Barlow's focus this year has been on Health and Wellbeing. The company partnered with Annurca, a company whose aim is to help individuals have a healthy lifestyle through workplace initiatives. During April 2011 they provided health and wellbeing assessments for all employees. Barlow’s aim is to help their employees reflect on their current lifestyle, to compare where they are against national recommendations, and to suggest practical and enjoyable ways for them to change if they choose; together with on-going support and encouragement.

To initiate employee engagement, new employees will be given a structured induction over two weeks from arrival at Barlows. Their personal development process provides a two-way framework that balances a structured approach with flexibility and informality. It is also intended to integrate a process of employee and company improvement into the everyday running of the business by improving hard and soft skills, addressing behaviour and liking roles to the company mission. The company also share their knowledge and skills in the workplace through coaching and mentoring, workplace secondments and collaborative planning. All have an immediate impact on business results.
