About Marks Sattin


What is it like to work for Marks Sattin

My Manager
My Manager

Managers conduct employee reviews twice annually to understand employees' ongoing needs. Managers lead by example regarding ongoing development and actively encourage non-management employees to harness all the training and development opportunities available to them. Managers offer on-the-job mentoring outside of set hours and/or appraisals to continuously give and receive feedback. Managers actively encourage all employees to get involved in CSR initiatives and lead by example on this. The same goes for social sports and other social activities outside work hours.

Following the Marks Sattin Mid-Year Review, employees participated in 'The Apprentice Challenge', followed by drinks and snacks. This was a half day event that saw all Marks Sattin employees in the UK and Ireland come together in London to celebrate the company's achievements and participate in an Apprentice themed challenge. Employees were split into groups and tasked with appointing a team leader, then followed clues to different areas of London and carried out challenges to earn points. Each team was given £50 for any purchases required and evidence such as photos and receipts had to be supplied for each challenge. Prizes included bar tabs and dinner at Michelin star restaurant for the entire team.

Marks Sattin regularly reviews the benefits package available to employees to ensure it's matching or exceeding employees' expectations and needs. Over and above these benefits, Marks Sattin offers monthly individual and team targets, as well as ongoing quarterly and annual rewards. Based around performance, client satisfaction and innovation, rewards include meals at award winning restaurants, bottles of champagne, iPads, evenings out and trips away e.g. the Professional Services Division received a weekend trip to Brussels after a record quarter. While this is not 'one example', it's what past surveys and focus groups have shown Marks Sattin employees value most; ongoing monetary or prize based performance rewards that encourage both them as individuals and together as teams to excel. Throughout the year Marks Sattin also subsidises staff events to both reward teams and reinforce an open, team culture rarely seen in the recruitment industry.
