Accessibility to the executive and senior management is seen as essential to the culture within Calyx.  As such, none of the executive or senior management have their own office.  Everyone works together in one open plan environment.  All senior management are expected to attend social events with staff.  Staff are actively encouraged by the CEO to seek out and question management about decisions or issues that they want better to understand.  The reward scheme, which is agreed by the executive team, is based on which member of staff has best demonstrated the values of the company.

One of Calyx's employee benefits is a cash back scheme via Westfield health.  Staff can get money towards routine items such as dentist/opticians or even massages and chiropodist. The scheme allows for health screening and offers an employee assistance programme and access to consultants and scans if need be. In addition they very often work with occupational health to give guidance to them and their staff in terms of sickness absence. They have recently introduced free fruit, have encouraged staff to apply for flexible working under the new legislation, and try their utmost to encourage a positive, supportive working environment.

Calyx have a strong apprentice scheme in place offering work opportunities to school leavers in the local area. Their HR assistant and finance assistant came through the scheme three years ago.  They have a service desk analyst who finished her training before the year and now has a permanent role and a few others coming through the ranks. In addition, their chosen corporate charity, Francis House, is a local charity and was chosen by the staff because of this reason – the team wanted to support a local charity.
