About Creating Careers


What is it like to work for Creating Careers

My Manager
My Manager
The organisation develops a person’s skills and knowledge so that their job performance improves. They also test current skills to understand staff needs and identify any skills gaps. This ensures that all employees have the best possible skill set to do their job. They use management and cultural competencies to ensure that all employees understand what is required of them, and what they should be aiming for. The Brand Code brings together the characteristics and skills that the company values and they ensure that they recognise and develop these in individuals. The company understands how important it is to recognise and reward a job well done, as they want to praise employees for working hard and show their thanks and continued support. Through good working relationships and a safe and happy working environment, Creating Careers can identify if a person needs help, or if a workload is not realistic.

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
The company enhance employee well-being through a generous holiday allowance of 30 days plus bank holidays, together with flexible working patterns and a culture that discourages blame. Flexible working hours, home working, reduced hours and job sharing all contribute to a happy workforce. Health, fitness and stress management is encouraged through on-site yoga classes and a five-a-side team football. In addition, a contributory pension scheme and private health insurance help with financial planning and healthcare. The company paid cash plan allows all members a 24 hour free helpline for counselling, health, and well-being advice.

My Company
My Company
The company listens to its employees in many different ways. They have been IIP registered since 1999 and information gained from IIP assessments helps them to understand what their staff feel and think. From this they have implemented their cultural and management competencies. Listening skills are one of the company's key management competencies. The IIP assessments ensure that their management strategies are working, and employees are happy and motivated within the culture and organisation. The company also use an appraisal system that focuses on honest, two-way communication. Their appraisals are not tick-box exercises; they are in-depth discussions with employees about their development needs and career goals. The Fun Committee is a group formed to help ensure that the company promotes social activities and to create a working environment that’s fun, engaging and happy.
