About Cambridge Manufacturing Company Ltd


What is it like to work for Cambridge Manufacturing Company Ltd

Wellbeing
Wellbeing

The company helps individuals when requested, rather than having specific policy. For example, someone who worked in the office and had a back problem informed their manager. An ergonomist was bought in and they recommended a specialist chair, smaller keyboard and a specific mouse. The company paid for the service and also the recommended items. The company is flexible enough for people to be able to work part-time if they need to. There is paid leave for Doctor/Dentist appointments and a day/half day leave for hospital appointments. This is all discretionary.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back

An environment project team has just been established as part of the Lean initiative headed up by the Hygiene Manager. He and the Operations Manager have already introduced a number of initiatives to increase their recycling streams e.g. waste paper collection bins, plastic baling, metal collection. In addition they have been working with the Carbon Trust to identify means of reducing our Carbon Footprint.

Fair Deal

There is an attendance bonus scheme for everyone who hasn't had a day off sick in a year. They get a cheque for £125. They also get entered into a draw and the winner receives £1,800 in addition to the £125 and the runner up receives £600 in addition to the £125. Once an employee has been with Cambridge for 3 months, take along 3 payslips and are given a card for the company shop. They can then purchase food and health and beauty products such as Marks and Spencer food and big bags of sweets!
