What is it like to work for East Thames Group

My Manager

East Thames Group's performance briefings are organised by the senior management team to ensure all staff have the information they need on East Thames’ performance. The quarterly presentations are delivered by the Chief Executive, alongside other senior members of staff who present on the important issues affecting East Thames. As well as providing important information they are often interactive and aim to educate staff about various areas of the business. During the briefings there are frequent opportunities for staff to ask the senior management team questions and ensure two-way communication is taking place.

Team building activities are arranged by managers locally. However, East Thames do hold a staff conference once every 12-18 months, which gives them the opportunity to bring everyone in the organisation together.
