The values encourage staff, management and leadership alike to be straightforward, helpful, innovative, to have no limits to customer service and to empower and engage.

What is it like to work for Bristan Group Limited

My Manager
My Manager
Before the leadership development programme starts, each manager receives coaching from someone else who has been through the programme. They also choose action learning groups as part of the programme - this is a group of peers getting together regularly to discuss issues/concerns and learn from each other. Their Leader Essentials programme focuses less on leadership behaviour and more on the basics of being a great people manager, such as policies and processes, case studies on how to deal with certain situations etc. This not only ensures everyone is on the same page, but also builds internal relationships so each of their managers have someone else they can go to for advice.The HR team also support, having regular 121's with all managers to coach and mentor them where appropriate, and attending team meetings.
Wellbeing is covered at Bristan Group's quarterly employee forum, allowing employees to raise wellbeing issues at a group level. On top of this, they encourage their managers to hold regular 121s, allowing employees to be open and honest with how they are feeling. Their managers are equipped with the tools they need to do this, which includes a free 24/7 confidential employee assistance helpline.

This year, they made a conscious effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste they create. They bought every employee a branded water bottle, and have glasses readily available for visitors (instead of plastic cups). They also have changed their hot drinks machines so that a mug has to be used rather than a paper/plastic cup. They no longer purchase plastic cups at all within the business.100% of their waste is recycled. This means that nothing they produce goes to landfill. They have replaced their air conditioning as well to save energy and maintain a comfortable temperature for everyone who works in the office.... creating a better working environment and running a more efficient air con system which will save costs. They are an accredited member of the carbon trust - with the aim to reduce CO2 emissions year on year.
