About GEAR4


What is it like to work for GEAR4

Leadership
Leadership

Disruptive's CEO has a geniune open door policy. He is accessible to each and everyone who works for the organisation. He has a great passion and is involved and interested in the business at every level. He demonstrates a very approachable style of leadership, coupled with an immense enthusiasm to succeed and for them to be the best at what they do. When an employee chooses to leave he is always concerned about why they are going and wants to ensure that if Disruptive have done something wrong that they put it right. He became aware that the mother of a member of the team had fallen seriously ill unexpectedly. On hearing this news he paid for the air fare for him to be with her out of his own pocket.

For the second year in a row, Disruptive had their company boat trip. The whole company went to Henley on Thames where they boarded a boat for a cruise down the river. Food, drink and entertainment was provided - on their return for those who wanted the party to continue (it was only 5pm after all) they were dropped off in Marlow for fish and chips and a pub or too. Great night out and a few sore heads the next day.

Quarterly company meetings are interspersed with a "department focus" - a particular team or department present back to the business what they do. The most recent was a presentation given by the product team - who talked the business through the process. These regular meetings allow departments to see how they fit together and prompted suggestions in how they could work better with each other. It encouraged thinking about how the company could do things differently. Areas that need attention are discussed, strategies are agreed and they also celebrate their successes.
