The business allocates staff two days a year to volunteer, without losing out financially, and last year some 116 employees undertook such work.

Staff say the job is good for their personal growth (79%), and there is an annual average training spend of £525 per employee. There are opportunities to learn and grow within the company (a top 10 score of 69%) and the experience gained is valuable for the future (79%).
