I think the best example actually relates to Boxwood's holistic approach. They think about development from the point someone enters Boxwood and then throughout their life within Boxwood. The company take a blended learning approach offering a number of different development channels. They have a development framework and a coaching system that allows for individualised development paths and they think about development and learning both off-the-job and also on-the-job.

June 2012 saw another of Boxwood’s legendary Summer Fun Day weekends – a sociable and fun weekend to thank their employees and their families for their effort and support during the year. This year the company took over Tylney Hall in Hampshire and managed to dodge most of the rain! The highlights were: a treasure hunt in the grounds of the hotel for the children, whilst ‘grown-ups’ sampled fine canapés and champagne in a fantastic walled-garden, a fantastic hog-roast and BBQ accompanied by live entertainers – a roving magician, caricaturist, Barber Shop Quartet and late-evening live music. Even the ‘little ones’ were kept entertained later with their own movie room before being swept away to bed by the babysitters. On Sunday they had an event-packed day of fun including: hovercraft racing, Segways, bunjee trampolines, bouncy castles, cake decorating, canapé making, face-painting - to name but a few! After a lazy lunch and more activities, families then made their way home on the Sunday afternoon.

Each year the company hold their annual ‘Boxwood essence awards’ as part of their April Away Day to celebrate those who are outstanding role-models and are held in high esteem by their peers for their actions and/or behaviours. Whilst there are prizes for the winners, the primary purpose is to recognise and celebrate individual and team contributions over the last year and to engage all of their people in the nominations process.
