Stephen Pycroft has himself progressed through the business to his current position over several years and this is what makes his leadership distinctive. He has a detailed knowledge of the business and what the experience of work is like for Mace's employees, he is willing to be hands on when necessary, he is approachable and accessible and he is a role model for others who wish to develop their careers within the business. Along with the rest of the senior team, Stephen is seen as a down to earth, accessible leader whose direct, honest approach is appreciated.
Mace provides the opportunity for employees to apply for financial sponsorship towards a formal educational qualification. Sponsorship can include the cost of qualification, time off from work to attend college/university, a maximum of 5 days study leave (project work and exams) and provision of a company mentor for the duration of the study. This year Mace has approved over 30 new sponsorships. Overall the company has 103 employees studying construction related disciplines, management, facilities management and health and safety related qualifications.
The Mace Star awards are in their second year. Employees are given the opportunity to nominate a colleague or a team for a range of award categories. Winners are announced at the annual end of year celebration. Line managers are encouraged, through the Managing People @ Mace programme which this year is focussing on giving feedback, to reward employees informally by ensuring they are thanked for doing a good job and get the recognition that they deserve. Mace believes that this informal approach has a greater positive effect on employee engagement than a formalised system.
