The Kiln Group hold an annual lunch every January.

The event is viewed as the social highlight of the year by employees and the details, including the venue, are kept a closely guarded secret until the last minute. This is an example of how the leadership team at Kiln engage with the staff and make them feel truly valued for their efforts.

Giving Something Back

On 9 June 2012, Kiln sponsored Sierra Leone's first ever marathon. Kiln led the way on fundraising for the charity Street Child of Sierra Leone. All of the company’s staff were involved in raising this money, by encouraging suppliers to support Kiln staff who were running the marathon and also by holding various fundraising events around the organisation such as, cake sales, a darts evening, selling events, raffles and quizzes. Kiln also paid for 20 employees to travel to Sierra Leone to participate and raise money. Team members sponsored their colleagues and encouraged them with their gruelling training schedules. Kiln matched the amount of funds raised by staff. The event brought the company together and every member of staff was touched by the work of the charity and contributed with either time, or money to enable Kiln to achieve the amazing sum of £180,000 for Street Child of Sierra Leone.
