About Citywire Financial Publishers Ltd


What is it like to work for Citywire Financial Publishers Ltd

Leadership
Leadership
Since the last survey the organisation has implemented many changes such as reducing the official working hours, improving on site facilities, organising group fitness training sessions, providing training on all basic software packages, nutritionist sessions, company walks, employee guide, new starter meetings, slap up breakfasts, culture trips, dinners out, massage sessions and an improved appraisal process. The Leader of the organisation is approachable by any member of staff and he encourages feedback from all staff members and mentors a number of the lower level staff. He is interested in people as individuals and believes that if employees are happy in their work environment, then they will do well and in return everyone benefits. He also ensures that the widest group of employees have become holders of share options in the company.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Citywire Holdings believe their holistic approach to promoting socially responsible behaviours towards the environment, social justice or local community relations is the most effective thing they do in ‘giving something back’. They have a dedicated ‘in the Community’ team formed of employee and senior management representatives who help identify, develop, communicate and support employee participation in a breadth of ‘giving back’ opportunities and initiatives. They include schools careers fairs, tea party concerts for the elderly and operating a food bank donation facility. Beneficiaries include local, national and global representatives including the young, the elderly, people in poverty or facing other social and educational challenges, people with disability and victims of natural disaster. They also sponsor every employee who undertakes a charitable fund raising initiative or challenge and actively encourage them to pursue internal promotion and awareness of their cause.
