Workplace Listening We have a devoted team of Workplace Listeners that have been trained to listen to other employees. A Workplace Listener is someone that employees can go to for a confidential chat to talk about something which may be bothering them. They offer a safe haven within the workplace when there is no one else that they can talk to. Employees can expect from a Workplace Listener respect, empathy, acceptance, openness, transparency and honesty. There is a dedicated Workplace Listening Room which ensures that there is always a private, confidential and safe environment for Workplace Listening Sessions to take place.

The company have supported Operation Orphan over the years, a charity improving the lives of orphans across the world. They are about to hold a Winter Charity Ball raising money for the charity and have in the past held a dress down week, a bake sale and competitions/sweepstakes. They support the Keep a Child Warm campaign where they collect warm essentials for the charity and they helped support the Nepal earthquake with Operation Orphan. Danbro have also supported a local charity, Carers Trust Fylde Coast, whose aim is to help young carers gain new skills and valuable experiences. They took part in a challenge called Cash Quest for Carers and had to turn a donated £50 into as much money for the charity as possible in 100 days. Two directors headed up two teams in which they held fundraising initiatives, partnering up with local businesses. Examples include selling home grown vegetables and eggs, ice cream, magazine and book sale, acting as a chauffeur, raffles/bingo, pub quiz (held in the local pub), football match, taking over their tea lady's jobs for the day making the whole company cups of tea/coffee, bake off and the Vegas Casino Evening at the local hotel. They also take part in in an estuary clean close by to their Lytham office in partnership with Friends of the Estuary; they also support The Christie's Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride, which many of their employees take part in year after year and the company always supports their endeavours.
Fair Deal

It’s well known throughout the company that if a person has recently contributed to the business or is excelling in their role, Helen and Damian reward their employees for all their recent efforts by inviting them along as guests to support and represent Danbro at awards and community events outside of work. This is the kind of reward which Danbro regularly reward their employees with, as it is a widely received initiative over monetary rewards across the business; it makes their employees feel appreciated and that their efforts are not overlooked. Some of their employees were invited to the Red Rose Awards in early 2015 after contributing to the Employer of the Year application form. To present their case and engage with all of their employees they sent a companywide email asking ‘why you think they should win.’ Those who contributed were invited as guests with Helen and Damian to the award ceremony. The table were also lucky enough to collect the award and give a small speech on behalf of Helen, Damian and Danbro. Other events include the BIBA's awards (an evening awards ceremony held at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom), St Georges Day event on Lytham Green (where all those who gave up their Christmas holidays to help with the big office move were invited to an afternoon of food, drinks and dancing) and Lytham Festival Tickets, including VIP/meet and greet with headlining acts. Other non-monetary rewards include office treats and breakfast/meal vouchers in their onsite canteen/coffee shop.
