About Jelf Group PLC


What is it like to work for Jelf Group PLC

My Manager
My Manager
The senior management team are committed to acting as advocates for the 7 Jelf Guiding Principles during their day to day activities. They act as role models to show that their clients needs are paramount and that the company's objective to be their Trusted Adviser should drive the behaviour of all their staff. They guide, coach and support their direct reports to ensure that their people are managed well throughout all stages of the employee life cycle. They frequently "walk the floor" in order to understand employees' issues and thoughts about matters which concern them. They demonstrate that they are in touch with current issues and have an "open door" policy allowing staff to approach them too.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
They value the health and wellbeing of their staff and recognise that balancing every day life together with the requirements of work and home can create pressures for everyone. One example is the Employee Assistance Programme provided by an independed external organisation. The service is available to all staff and family members living at the same address and covers support and advice on a wide range of areas. This includes medical information; stress counselling; tax advice, legal advice,and childcare advice. Employees can receive up to 8 sessions of face to face counselling and there is also online support utilising a range of engaging and useful tools. The service is completely anonymous. Another example is that they ran seminars on Money at Work and Money after Work to help staff with day to day budgeting and financial issues as well as supporting them with financial plans for their retirement.
My Team
My Team
Being very proactive in supporting company-wide events, for example the Jelf Sales Conference and Central Services Conferences. The conferences give employees the chance to meet and network with their colleagues, sharing ideas, opinions and best practice.In 2014 these events also gave employees the opportunity to put forward suggestions to improve various practices within the company through a "Dragon's Den" workshop. As a result there is a clear action plan of initiatives sponsored by the Group Executive Board, many of which have already been implemented.
