About Fairbanks


What is it like to work for Fairbanks

Leadership
Leadership
The Leadership of Fairbanks is distinctive through its approachability and work ethic. Every member of the management team lead by example in all areas of their work and make time for employees should it be necessary on a work related or personal topic. Most members of management, at any level, attend and participate in company social events. From the Managing Directors down, all staff are known by name and made to feel valued and appreciated. The company has a ‘promote from within’ attitude which motivates employees at all levels to work hard and demonstrate their dedication to the company as this will be noticed. Whilst not everyone can be promoted, events such as award dinners are offered to all staff, recognising that the company would not be what it is today without everyone playing their part.

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Fairbanks cares for the well being of all its employees. In addition to encouraging a good work-life balance there are a number of staff sports groups which meet regularly. Organised and run by staff members, teams such as football, netball and the squash ladder are open to all members of Fairbanks staff along with their friends and family. These regular team sports encourage a healthy lifestyle whilst having the added bonus of developing the working rapport for staff. Fairbanks also provides various subsidised schemes for staff to take advantage of; from a pension plan, health care plan, cycle to work scheme and the provision of fresh fruit as well as office based water coolers. These schemes demonstrate to employees that the company care about their health and well being.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Employees are encouraged to car share through a centrally saved spread sheet of those willing to car share and their home towns. This has led to approximately 15 staff sharing the majority of journeys each week. They have recently started monitoring paper and fuel usage across the company. It is intended that they will take steps to reduce these figures and, in the case of paper use, they shall increase the amount recycled; so far this calendar year they have saved 24.8 trees. Staff ensure they use all non-confidential waste paper a second time through the medium of a scrap notebook before it is recycled.
