About Georges Tradition Limited


What is it like to work for Georges Tradition Limited

My Manager
My Manager
Their Managers work well with their team and understand that outisde business committments such as studies, family or holidays may require them to swap/change their shifts or need additional time away from work. They are extremely flexible in accommodating these requests and respect that their employees have other reponsibilites outside of work that are priority to them. They completely understand, as they all have families too and are able to accommodate the majority of requests when their staff want to make changes to their contracted shifts. Managers follow this culture that we demonstrate at a central support level and take time to carry out regular reviews with each member of staff, whether they work 4 or 40 hours a week, each member of their team is guaranteed this time with their Managers.

They offer all employees a Hardship Support Loan. From time to time, people encounter circumstances that make it difficult for them to meet their financial obligations. College tuition, medical bills, unexpected expenses etc, can all take a toll on finances for all of us. The Georges Hardship support loan is a discretionary loan - interest free- against a member of staff's future salary. Repayment of the loan will be deducted in increment from the employees salary over a set time as agreed between both parties. They have several pool cars available to Central Support staff to go and visit their people as and when needed. These cars have also been leant out to employees when they had had issues with their own form of transportation. They have done this at no charge and have also insured them at no extra cost to themselves. They offer advice on Stress Counselling/Management to all employees. They dont offer Zero hour contracts - each employee has set contracted shifts from day one of their employment, this achieves a steady balance at home and work for everyone employed.
