What is it like to work for Julian Support Ltd

Leadership

Their rebranding has revitalised the organisation as the new logo and name reflect their true identity. This rebranding has contributed and coincided with the winning of new bids and has acted as a re-launch and staff have found this exciting. The rebranding exercise involved many staff working as a project group and this engagement has ensured that the new branding has been well received. The Leader works in an inclusive way sharing issues with managers and discussing solutions to challenges. They have an open, transparent and direct approach and are always available to discuss the way the organisation works. This friendly and open style encourages staff to talk through concerns at an early stage and this often influences final decisions. The 'free lunches' that are run by the Chief Executive also encourages a range of discussions on all aspects on how the organisation is run.

Managers operate a Business Meeting and Leadership Forum, both of which keep managers up to date with changing needs of the organisation and this commitment is reared by informal praise and internal promotions. Many groups of managers are grouped for projects which have been successful in changing how the organisation works. Managers encourage flexibility in working hours and work areas so that wherever possible the needs of individuals can be accommodated. Their friendly working policies also support the culture of the organisation and managers have discretion in applying requests for flexibility. Managers know that a strong team is created by being open about issues so that dialogue takes place to encourage early resolution. By using their appraisal system managers set objectives which are both personal and organisational. Staff are regularly seen through 1 to 1's and supervision so that they can see how their achievements fit into the business plan.

The organisation operates an open and transparent management style and their 'flat' structure allows quality communications at all levels. The Chief Executive offers free lunches to all employees three times a year when she is willing to explain and outline proposed changes to service delivery, changes that affect staff and any question which employees feel they want to ask. Since the last survey they have ensured all teams have a breakdown on the results and that they share ideas and suggestions to improve the working lives of employees. Examples have been the installation of water coolers and a tuck shop for staff.
