About Idis


What is it like to work for Idis

Leadership
Leadership
The culture of Idis is very dynamic and encourages entrepreneurship. This is clearly driven by Natalie, their leader. She is a charismatic leader and passionate communicator, who is keen to provide updates and communicate with all staff. Examples include, leading the ad-hoc company “bus stop” meetings and attending team meetings. They also run a lunch with Natalie programme, where a couple of times a month a staff member will go to lunch with Natalie, individuals are randomly selected and it could be an employee from any level or department. The purpose of this is to get first hand feedback from staff and temperature check what the organisation are doing well and what they could be doing better. Natalie also leads our staff innovation team, providing a monthly forum to explore new ideas and how they can be implemented into the business.

To encourage employees to get to know each other and to improve working relationships the organisation hold a number of team orientated activities, some of these include friendly darts and bowling games, quiz nights, go-karting and paintballing as well as the annual summer and Christmas parties and the twice yearly departmental nights out. In June 2009 the company held a team challenge called ‘The Big Picture’ in which small groups of employees got together to paint a collage, all the pieces were then placed together to make a giant picture, the finished painting is currently hanging in the office.
