What is it like to work for GLH Ltd

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
GLH believe in supporting their employees to achieve their own personal ambitions as part of their own development. Their appraisal system is designed to be led by the employee and the manager, meaning that both are able to identify learning and development goals, auctioning these goals can involve time off for study which is permitted freely. One example of this was one of telephonist decided he wanted to retrain as an accountant. They sourced and paid for his training, as well as provided him with adequate amount of time for study and exam preparation.

GLH Ltd have two major community investment partners, who they work closely with to develop and run initiatives. At the Archer Academy they provide them with more strategic level support and assist in embedding sustainability into their three year Development Plan. They are also co-creating and delivering a series of thematic learning sessions based on sustainability and stakeholder engagement with this academy.  This involved their lead for sustainability sharing her experience of addressing sustainability. Within the last three months they have fully funded the new library and ran an employee engagement campaign to secure hundreds of donated books.   GLH are now in the process of establishing a Literature Buddies Scheme. At Totteridge Academy GLH support the on-going development of the John Scott Nature Reserve. This challenging project has seen students, teachers and their employees convert an untamed and unused wilderness area of the school grounds into a thriving eco-system and outdoor learning space, that is accessible to around 3000 students locally. Activities include undertaking a thorough litter pick, mapping and sampling the biodiversity across the seasons, clearing lots of brambles, creating habitats, a pond area and small vegetable growing site, as well as installing benches and tables for learning. Alongside this they run workshops to build students understanding of biodiversity and eco-systems. This project is part of the wider Eco-Mission sustainability education programme, this enables young people to secure the knowledge, experience and skills to become leaders in the emerging sustainable economy, as well as providing employee volunteering opportunities.
