About EDP Drug and Alcohol Services


What is it like to work for EDP Drug and Alcohol Services

My Manager
My Manager
Managers give time during appraisal to ensure that the individual is heard and follow through on needs. They promote each tool and encourage staff to provide feedback reassured there is no reprisal for honestly and openness. They set and manage expectations of the organisation and are able to articulate the vision of the organisation and how people fit into it. They share best practice through their own teams and the wider organisation. Wellbeing is important and managers monitor employees working hours, ensuring individuals are encouraged to go home on time. They hear and commit to the principles outlined in management development regarding duty of care and understanding the importance of empathy.
Personal Growth

To support employee development, they made an investment of £36,000 in two dedicated posts specifically for training and development in a year where core costs had to remain lean. This was to emphasise and underline the importance of their people and their professional development in spite of the financial landscape. They believe that their people are their product.

Staff Networking Day which was the first opportunity for all staff to step away from the day job and hear about the strategic direction of the organisation and share their views on shaping the future. It was also an opportunity for staff to work in groups looking at specific areas of the business and make suggestions for improvements. There was also some time to kick back and have some fun.
