What is it like to work for Keoghs

Leadership

Keoghs CEO, John Whittle, really is the champion of the company’s Shared Behaviours at Keoghs. He is passionate about them and seeks to role model them in his work. John is friendly, honest and has an open and approachable style. He works hard to create a culture that ensures Keoghs is a great place to work, and one that cares for the individuals who work here. Keogh have a session called Excellence at Keoghs which all employees are invited to attend. John has facilitated the majority of these sessions and has taken on board the issues and suggestions that the groups have had. Feedback from the session’s highlight that while staff find the sessions extremely useful, they are often surprised at how a CEO from a company of this size will make the time to meet and talk with staff in this intimate setting. However, this is something that John is always happy to do.

This course was designed to run over 4 days over 4 months and consists of the following modules; Leading Teams, Developing High Performing Teams, Coaching and Engaging Teams. Each Team Leader upon completing the four modules is asked to do a work based project to be presented to a Business Unit Director. All Team Leaders and the Team Leaders of the future have attended this course which has been a great success.

Keoghs offer a number of ways for staff to offer ideas and feedback and work hard to encourage a two way information flow. Communication options available include: Internal newsletters (staff are encouraged to send in content), Daily business communications (a daily email issued to all staff covering a variety of topics – often used to promote opportunities for feedback), Surveys (undertaken for a range of topics from where to hold the staff Christmas party to feelings on particular issues going on within the firm), Forums (offers staff the ability to post questions to the Board which can be done anonymously if preferred), Meetings – Business update meetings are held quarterly, staff are encouraged to send in their questions prior to the event and are given the opportunity to ask questions at the meetings themselves. Surveys are then circulated to ask for feedback on the issues raised. Team meetings are also a great opportunity to gain feedback from staff in person.
