Buro Four staff volunteer with a charity called Resurgo Spear. Spear runs a 6-week pre-employment training course for young people, between the ages of 18 - 24, that they meet through the job centre or are referred to them. The aim of the course is to help them into employment or education. It equips young people with the hard skills they need to find a job, including how to present themselves, CV writing and interview training and also tackles behavioural issues that employers cite as major barriers to long-term success in their young recruits. Each Spear attendee leaves with increased confidence, skills to find work and a City & Guilds Level 1 Qualification in Customer Service. Part of the course involves participants experiencing a working environment and they partner with organisations to facilitate this. As such, on a quarterly basis Buro Four invite participants from the Spear training course to spend an afternoon in the company’s offices. A team of Buro Four volunteer’s show them around the office and present to them on what it is Burp Four do and what it's like to work there. They run team building exercises with the participants to support team working and engagement.
Fair Deal
Fair Deal
In circumstances where individuals contribute something exceptional that adds value to the success of the business they will be rewarded with an 'on the spot bonus’. The bonus is paid as and when performance is recognised and staff will be told of their achievement by a Director and receive written confirmation of the bonus. It is an effective way of demonstrating to staff that they are valued and that their efforts are recognised at the highest level. It is high impact because it rewards success immediately as opposed to it being recognised through an annual bonus scheme which could be up to 12 months later when with the passage of time it runs the risk of being perceived as less of an achievement. Examples of where 'on the spot' bonuses have been paid in the last 12 months are for: extremely positive client feedback on a high profile project, successful delivery of an internal IT based project within a tight time frame, for hard work and commitment in securing a new client and project when this is not typical for the job level. This type of bonus is in addition to the formal profit share and bonus schemes operated by the company where 60% of pre tax profits are distributed annually to staff through a variety of profit share and bonus schemes.
