About IRESS


What is it like to work for IRESS

My Team
My Team
Sports & social teams are in place at each of IRESS’ six locations to arrange a variety of events. The company provides funding for each team based on a per head sum of money. All of the sports and social teams work in close liaison with people at their respective locations to determine the type of events people would like to attend. They are then responsible for allocating this money in support of events. These social occasions engender a real sense of team spirit enabling their people to enjoy one another’s company and interact with each other outside of the office. Each team organises a summer event and this year these included the previously named Avelo X-Factor night, a Poulton Palooza and a fun day for Cheltenham employees and their families. Smaller events are held throughout the year and in recent months, have included monthly meals, quiz-nights, inter-office cricket, football matches and trips to sporting fixtures, ten-pin bowling and the theatre.

IRESS currently support three charities that are local to their offices, namely The James Hopkins Trust (Cheltenham and Poulton offices), Warwick Myton Hospice (Warwick office) and Woking Hospice (Woking office). In addition to these charities, they are also supporting The Prince’s Trust Million Makers initiative.

IRESS have a recognition award scheme that is used to recognise the outstanding achievements of employees. The award is intended for individuals who perform over and above their job description and who excel in the company’s core values. It is particularly powerful in that it enables any individual to make a nomination for any other individual, team or department. It also encourages managers to reward team members via individual recognition and vouchers schemes. Company wide recognition of the individuals receiving awards and their achievements are then provided via the engagement team newsletters and their intranet. IRESS are currently reviewing the criteria of the recognition award scheme so that, alongside their valued behaviours, they can also align it to their primary purpose, winning ambition and strategy signposts.
