What is it like to work for Leyton

My Team
My Team
Leyton have an open plan, open door environment. Teams cross fertilise by rotating through different sectors. In addition, sales and consulting elements work together to win clients and deliver the work. The boundary between how reward for this team ethos is remunerated is hazy and we have managed to create healthy competition without the elbows becoming too sharp. There is perfect transparency, everyone can see what everyone else is doing. Everyone knows what they have to do. Metrics and rewards and clear, simple and easy to follow.

In addition, the company support a local junior school with their reading scheme, maths programme, PE needs and technology club. This occurs one afternoon a week, twice a month. Post Remembrance Sunday the company have asked for ideas on the next initiative and colleagues are voting between a mentoring scheme and debating club for local youth. Their parent company is in France and they will be supporting a charity cycle ride from London to Paris. Charity is hugely important to the company and its employees.
Fair Deal

Leyton offer their employees monthly incentives from dinner at the Ritz or kayaking up the Thames to Ipads and theatre tickets, these are given to the exceptionally high performing individuals who produce exceptional work for continued periods of times. Team incentives include early finishes and trips away successfully hitting their targets and KPI’s. In addition to the ways in which Leyton reward their staff they also provide impressive benefits including their private health provider offers reduced costs for gym and incentives (vouchers/discounts) for fitness related activity. In addition, there are cinema benefits, meals and cycle discounts. They encourage people to leave early when they have finished their work but people seem to hang together in the local pub post work regardless.
