About McGinley Human Resources

What is it like to work for McGinley Human Resources

Mcginley’s weekly fresh fruit drop and healthy treats like energy and cereal bars, which are always provided at meetings, encourages staff to eat healthily. The company provides clean and well-maintained areas for employees to prepare and store their own meals too. McGinley have embraced the notion of actively encouraging employees to take proper lunch breaks and hit the gym at lunchtime. The company also offers the flexibility of a slightly longer lunch break so it’s definitely worth it! Moreover, for those that wake up early to squeeze in a morning workout session, the company is always accommodating to a slightly late start. Mcginley’s have even partnered with Incorpore to offer all employees a discounted gym membership scheme across 2980 health clubs in the UK. They have also created a staff breakout area with pool and ping-pong tables where staff can relax away from the PC screen and unwind. There’s even some good quality coffee and coffee machines, which helps to brighten the mood and is probably one of the quickest pick-me-ups! All of offices are given the option to listen to music whilst they work, as playing music instantly relaxes the mood and stress levels. The daily morning huddles also help teams and individuals to reach out to fellow colleagues to lend a helping hand, providing support, guidance and ultimately reducing stress.

Mcginley’s have run the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon for three consecutive years and have raised approximately £15k for their chosen charity, Tommy’s. As a part of their CSR commitment, McGinley CEP works closely with the Construction Youth Trust to encourage more youngsters into the construction industry. Some of their construction team members recently visited the Willmott Dixon Interiors and Construction Youth Training Centre in Bermondsey to mentor some of the industry’s future stars. Their Education team are working together with the Enterprise Club at the Archbishop Blanch C of E High School, raising money for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. This November the company have also sponsored a table and tickets to the Glamour and Goodness Ball at the St. John Hotel in Solihull to raise money for Brain Tumour Research and Birmingham Children's Hospital. Mcginley’s Director Liz is one of the Dragons in the Business Bootcamp and spends some quality time mentoring participants. McGinley Human Resources support the local branches of the Jobcentre Plus to help struggling jobseekers. They also work together with Ingeus, a leading provider of the Work Programme, giving jobseekers the support they need to find and keep a job for the long term. They have also worked with Manchester College, who had a pilot-pre-apprenticeship project running, to help ex-offenders turn their lives around by learning new skills. McGinley have also placed many ex-offenders in the rail track industry.

Some of the quarterly incentives included a private hospitality box at the Royal Ascot, Club Hospitality at Premier League football fixtures, the ultimate cook and dine experience at L’Atelier des Chefs, VIP box seating at the ATP Tour Finals, T20 cricket at the Oval, a unique human and sensory experience at the famed ‘Dans le Noir’ and dinner at the chef’s table at Gordon Ramsay’s swanky Michelin star restaurant, Maze.
