About Computer 2000 Distribution Ltd


What is it like to work for Computer 2000 Distribution Ltd

Leadership
Leadership

The senior management team at Computer 2000 encourage a culture which is open and transparent. Directors work in teams and put themselves forward for 'pranks' such as the gunge tank, year end videos and parties. Management speak from the heart and are genuine, open, direct, honest and demonstrate humility in their communications. They personally recognise individual contributions and long service demonstrated most recently by personally arranging for bosses to fly in from Canada, USA, Germany and France for a presentation to an employee that had worked with the company for 25 years.
