About Big Ideas Group


What is it like to work for Big Ideas Group

My Manager
My Manager

The senior managers demonstrate their commitment to the values most significantly by sitting among the team, in an open plan office where everyone is approachable. Weekly management meetings take place and from there each manager gives necessary feedback from those meetings to their teams. Senior managers are also encouraged to get involved in the social activities outside of work as they feel that by sometimes getting to know the staff outside of a working environment and building good relationships will really help with staff productivity at work.

Personal Growth

Big Ideas' staff are important to them and so is their development. Line managers meet with their team members regularly to discuss their personal development. Each person is issued with a training road map containing set objectives. These objectives are always decided with the employee and if training/certifications are involved the company will reimburse the cost upon successful completion of the training/exam and they will also receive a £200 salary increment per exam they pass. Big Ideas also take an interest in staff participating in non-work related training. Each term they offer to pay for a range of evening classes. Each person can pick one course each term and these range from languages to art, dancing, sport and massage.

My Team

Big Ideas have introduced something called ’90 day sprints’ where each team is targeted to work towards between each quarterly meeting. Each team has a list of goals they need to achieve within the next 90 days and progress reviews are discussed weekly during management meetings. At the end of each quarter each team presents their progress on their previous 90 day sprints to the company at the quarterly meeting and then announces their new 90 day sprints for the next quarter. These 90 day sprints help to align their business goals and objectives across all of their teams and departments and by regularly communicating these in weekly management meetings and quarterly meetings this helps to ensure that everyone is on the same page and the strategy of the company is understood by all parties.
