About Kyocera Mita (UK) Ltd


What is it like to work for Kyocera Mita (UK) Ltd

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back

Kyocera Mita want to do more from a volunteering perspective in the next financial year. However, they have been very effective in raising funds for various charitities. The most noteable has been the fund raising activities that were undertaken to raise funds for the Japanese Tsunami Appeal. They offered employees the opportunity to donate to the appeal through the Give As You Earn Scheme. They raised funds through selling books, CDs, cakes and wrist bands, employees submitted bids for the senior managerment team to make tea and coffee for their department for a day and a team raised money through a sky dive. They raised in the region of £4000.

There is no formal feedback programme and have not conducted an employee opinion survey for several years. However, Kyrocera Mita openly welcome ideas and suggestions from all employees irrespective of how large or small. Departments will often take time out to brainstorm for ideas to increase revenue, minimise expenses, improve the office environment and motivate employees. As an example, it was at the suggestion of an employee that, as a means of celebrating their success, Kyrocera Mita should have a prize draw when they over achieve on their monthly Masterplan revenue target. This has now been in place for the last 12 months with two employees per month receiving a net payment of £100. It is not always possible to implement all ideas and sometimes ideas have to be changed a little in order to make them more relevant.

Kyocera Mita run two ad hoc employee reward schemes. One is an extra mile award which is awarded to employees who put in extra special effort - e.g. during the unexpected absence of a colleague, in order to meet a particular tough deadline, in order to avert a crisis. Employees can be nominated by any member of staff with the Human Resources Manager making the decision as to whether or not the award should be granted. The award is usually a bottle of champagne. The other is the Employee Excellence Award. This is awarded to employees who not only put in extra special effort but who are exceptional in all aspects of their work and are fully engaged in the company culture. Employees can be nominated by any member of staff with the executive team making the decision as to whether or not the award should be granted. The award is usually flowers, champagne and £100 of high street vouchers.
