About broadbandchoices


What is it like to work for broadbandchoices

Leadership
Leadership
The business leader at broadbandchoices is involved in all business activity and interacts regularly with employees from all levels of seniority - he knows everyone's name from a head count of 65. He strongly believes in the potential of their staff, largely due to the fact he is heavily involved in recruitment and insists on attending all final stage interviews. This is because he feels that recruitment of employees goes beyond skillset - they need to have the right personality and buy in to their company vision as well. The business leader makes time to talk to individual employees and ask them their opinion directly on how things are going, encouraging an open dialogue and the ability for ideas to be heard no matter who has come up with them. The prospect of anyone being able to think of an idea that can genuinely affect the direction of the business is a great way of engaging their employees.

This year broadbandchoices launched their Emerging Managers Programme (EMP). This was a management development course run over 4 months for 10 managers and covered a broad range of subjects which would help them in their day to day work and also develop them. It consisted of workshops and also individual coaching sessions. It also was a fantastic opportunity for people who don't always work together to have time to discuss common issues.

My Team
My Team
Team building exercises are incorporated into broadbandchoices 'Away Days' to allow staff from different teams to interact with each other outside of the office environment. It is their goal for the entire business to view itself as one 'central team' so these exercises are intended to break down barriers that may currently exist between staff members who do not regularly interact with each other. They also launched a training programme recently for line managers to develop their management skills by hosting an afternoon of challenges that pitted senior management staff against teams of line managers. It was a successful strategy and encouraged line managers on the training programme to behave like one cohesive unit from the beginning.
