BSD enable all managers and potential managers to coach and job shadow employees higher than them. They also run this for lower staff who wish to progress in the business at all levels, they are mentored and coached by the higher levelled employees. They have also created an external management course which six employees have attended, enabling them to learn new ways to manage and what methods to approach and use. Once completed, this will be used in-house and the experience will be shadowed along to other managers and seniors, to help progress the lower end employees. They believe coaching and mentoring is the best method, particularly in the M&E industry where nothing professional changes much, all the methods stay the same and it is the way in which you learn from others which is the best. Therefore, coaching lower people will provide them with the best possible approach to learn, along with mentoring which will enable them to pick up as they go along. They have performance reviews every 6 months and measure the performance of all employees, not just managers. The performance reviews involve objectives and measures to ensure that the managers are keeping in line with policies and procedures and that they achieve the objectives and aims set for them every 6 months.
