Managers review their team members consistently both through and at the end of projects as well as calendared appraisals and monitor performance and support required. Managers also have regular informal meetings with staff both in one to ones or teams in their relaxed office reception area. This fosters an inclusive and comfortable atmosphere in which to support departments on a regular basis. By splitting capabilities into Skills, Knowledge and Behaviours, the managers can focus support in the most focused area. They are aware team members have different needs and look at adapting their management style and level of support or input depending on each individual’s needs.
iD Experential's annual trip to Royal Ascot is one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year. In 2012 they hired their own area on the Silks Lawn. Their Christmas party was also a key event which had an 'Only Way is Essex' theme and a special guest appearance from Arg and Lydia, two of the TV shows cast who sang to the agency while they were having dinner . Everyone is already excited for this year's bash, although the theme and location are a closely guarded secret until nearer the time to ensure maximum impact for the agency! Every Friday afternoon iD's social committee iPARTY provides refreshments in the reception area so that the agency can finish the working week together.
