About Cabot Credit Management Ltd


What is it like to work for Cabot Credit Management Ltd

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
However busy Cabot's people are, in whatever role they have they actively provide opportunities for employees to take a break from their work and do something positive that will enhance their overall wellbeing. ‘Know your Numbers’, is a free service for employees who go along and have their BMI, cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and cardiovascular risk factors assessed. They receive personal, confidential feedback and advice on their numbers and information on lifestyle changes that may help to improve their health. We receive great employee feedback from people who have already taken active steps to improve their health and wellbeing based on the advice they received during their sessions. “My weight has been an "issue" for over a decade.........I have now finally changed my eating habits in a sustainable way and increased my activity levels - already lost half a stone and feel so much better!” This year, the Company has also offered free on site back and neck energising massages and a 6 week stop smoking clinic during working hours which have also made a positive difference to many of Cabot's employees wellbeing as illustrated by the following quotes: “Personally, I can categorically say that I would not have quit smoking if had not gone to the Stop Smoking Clinic, so thank you.” “The Well Being Massage is a pleasant experience that leaves me in a positive mood. I find it very therapeutic and relaxing hence helping to concentrate better on my daily tasks”

Over the last 12 months, Cabot have made a significant investment in team building activity which has been paid for by the organisation. Their biggest focus has concentrated on creating ownership of the Employee Engagement strategy and bringing it to life deeper within the organisation. All managers and team leaders circa 150 have attended a 2 day experiential offsite development programme focused on bringing the employee engagement strategy to life at a team level. 'Engaging with Engagement' recognised that the next step in their journey was to bring to life the micro drivers of engagement, whilst driving ownership and accountability of the employee engagement strategy right through the organisation. The 2 day experience began with all managers and team leaders travelling to the venue from two different sites in mini buses. Snack bags were provided and on arrival at the venue they had lunch and began their experiential development shortly after. The development was structured in a way that every member of the team could focus on themselves and also their team. This was brought to life through experiential team activities and exercises and enabled relationships to both be enhanced and formed, across this peer group. All this was taking place whilst the team were experiencing the content for themselves, after which they were encouraged to think about the application back in the workplace. The social dynamic of the workshop involved free time for socialising, dinner and evening activities, creating a real buzz and sense of camaraderie.

Cabot Credit Management launched a game called Skills 4 Bills. Skills 4 Bills is a financial learning game that is targeted towards students within the Year 6 age bracket. The game teaches children the importance of money and how to successfully budget. The game was originally launched to the local communities in Stratford upon Avon and West Malling. The employees are able to volunteer to attend the schools to play the game and as a business they offer each employee one day per year to attend this or another community activity. To enable Cabot to launch the game to the wider community and become easily accessible, they have obtained the PFEG accreditation and have launched the Skills 4 Bills website - skills-4-bill.co.uk. This website allows schools and businesses to download a free version of Skills 4 Bills or purchase a hard copy of the game at cost price. Cabot have been working with their clients - high street banks, to support them rolling out the game within their local communities. They have attended Cabot's Skills 4 Bills sessions and have then purchased the game to enable them to engage their employees with community activities. This initiative is managed by the Community POD who are a group of employees who have volunteered to dedicate part of their working lives to ensure that the game happens within the local community and also to offer their support to other organisations wishing to run the game within their local communities.
