My Company
My Company
The company have undertaken a number of opportunities to provide face to face contact and the opportunity for colleagues to ask questions and get answers as well as providing general feedback and input. One example of this is the lunch bag sessions run by the Chief Executive to involve all colleagues in the future direction of the Group. A number of departments have also run drop in sessions, such as ICT and Learning and Development to encourage individuals to resolve queries and get to know internal colleagues, other teams such as Finance are planning to follow suit. The company find that by offering flexible opportunities to come and ask questions in a local setting will encourage more colleagues to get involved with Group activities. In addition for those colleagues who may not want to contribute in a face to face setting they carry out a number of ad hoc surveys internally throughout the year on a variety of topics.
