The ‘Directors’ Manifesto’ incorporates the roles, behaviours and responsibilities by which they’re measured. This governs how they behave with the team and each other. This is used formally as part of their appraisal and informally at the mid-year check-in with the Managing Director.
People are trusted to concentrate on delivering, rather than being at work from nine to five. The company also supports people with children starting school - one employee, Sarah, worked from Kenya for four months when her husband was posted there.
