About BRITA Water Filter Systems Limited


What is it like to work for BRITA Water Filter Systems Limited

Leadership
Leadership

The Leader knows who everyone is and knows a lot about them. He cares very much for them as individuals and has shown his support in numerous ways over the years in times of personal troubles as well as professional difficulties. He took part in the various fund raising events and could be found in the car park each Monday washing cars with everyone else or collecting the entrance fees at the family day. Everyone enjoys the fact that we do not have a heirarchical approach and the Leader himself is very approachable and very passionate about BRITA and the team.

When employees deserve recognition for high achievements then the Department Head or in some cases the Managing Director will send out a communication to the company to recognise the achievement and ensure that the individual's contribution is highlighted to their colleagues. Ad-hoc bonuses are also used where particularly good work has been done. For example, when ISO 9001 accreditation was achieved, the employees who completed the project were given an additional bonus. Ad hoc bonuses have also been paid out for exceptional sales achievements.
