About Brandbank Limited


What is it like to work for Brandbank Limited

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Brandbank seek to enhance wellbeing in the work place by closely monitoring working hours. Managers make sure no one is consistently working too many hours, as they want all staff to maintain a healthy work/life balance. Their IT department have systems put in place where employees are only able to work for a certain amount of hours before their system locks down. If we were worried that someone was working for too many hours a meeting would be put into place to see what they can do to help with this. To help combat excessive working hours, all teams have the appropriate members of staff. If workload increases substantially they work closely with an agency and get temps into the office to help.

Brandbank held a companywide end of year event in May 2014 offsite. During this event, Directors and senior managers gave an overview of the previous year and discussed the strategic direction and plans for the coming year. After the meeting they had a party in the evening which was attended by all senior managers and Directors. This enabled them socialise and engage with staff who they might not ordinarily interact with on a daily basis. This gives them a chance to get to know staff on a personal level and is greatly appreciated and noted by all staff. This whole event really motivates and engages all employees.
Giving Something Back

Brandbank receive approximately 125,000 product samples a year. They have ‘staff shops’ where staff are asked to donate at least 30p per item, and in the past 12 months they have raised over £47,800 for charity. Brandbank give a lot of products to local housing trusts and soup kitchens. They give Easter eggs, toys and chocolates to local Children’s Hospices, animal food to animal shelters, etc. The local East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH) receives a weekly donation of products, which has helped them to cut their costs significantly. Staff are invited to nominate charities to whom they would like to send the money they raise. Staff are all invited to take part in things such as Children in Need and Movember during work time. They also do fundraising activities throughout the year at work to help raise funds, such as fancy dress days, MacMillan Coffee Mornings and cake sales.
