About Gleeds


What is it like to work for Gleeds

My Manager
My Manager
Managers review if the skills and the capacity of employees in their team needs to be reconsidered against the requirements of the work, both in team and 1-2-1 meetings on a weekly and monthly basis. At appraisal interviews, managers discuss with each employee what their personal aspirations are. Managers also debrief their teams after Board meetings. Discussions are encouraged whereby employees can ask questions and receive feedback in an open and honest environment.

The Gleeds Academy website allows Gleeds to provide cost effective training to a global audience via an online training system. They are able to provide access to a variety of training courses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for all their employees wherever they are based across the world. The training includes work flow for progression through modules, with support and feedback from training consultants. Courses are currently available via e learning, distance learning and video, with other options being considered for future development. The course content has been written by Gleeds experts in partnership with external training providers and it is split into three main categories: Leadership & Management, Personal Development, and Construction (technical). Launched in September 2011, there have already been over 140 requests for course access.
Wellbeing

Gleeds has an internal team known as "GYM" - Gleeds Young Marketeers - which has been running for circa 20 years. Younger members are encouraged to sign up and take part in the activities designed to help develop a sense of belonging and build up long term internal and external relationships. Activities include a conference (attended by 120 GYM members from across the world) sailing, bowling, wine tasting events with clients and charity marathons. 2011 saw a re-launch of GYM with new members and greater involvement. As well as occupational health provision and employee assistance programmes, they have also run yoga and massage courses at Head Office and their social calendar includes Christmas events, sailing days, team sports, away days and charity fund raising.
