Because Blue Chip Customer Engineering’s mission, vision and values are intrinsically inked to all business activities, they are always on the employees' minds. The mission and vision govern the key business objectives that are set out annually and reviewed quarterly. All new starters are educated on the Company's mission and vision during the induction and all employees receive updates on how the objectives are being met throughout the year. The company values, on the other hand, support the employee performance appraisal and personal development plans tools. These are reviewed quarterly for each employee and therefore every three months each employee revisits how they display the company values in their day to day work and interactions with the customers and colleagues.

100% of Blue Chip Customer Engineering’s workforce are entitled to a quarterly bonus that is directly linked to the company profit in the quarter of the sales target achieved, depending on the area of the business an employee works in. The company find that linking financial reward to the real outcomes for the business stimulates effort and cooperation amongst employees, as they all work towards the same goal and the commercial success of the organisation. There are also a carefully selected host of employee benefits that not only offer additional financial benefit or savings but also offer peace of mind in case of critical illness or disability. All of this enables employees to focus all their efforts and passion into ensuring a sustained growth of the company and therefore its continuous success.
