All managers have access to the industry body and seminars which are run for creatives, planners, account handling and finance. For example Meteorite’s new Business Manager will attend seminars specifically for new business managers whereby they discuss best practice and how to ensure you get enough support for your company. Meteorite believe that they train all of their managers to manage people not subordinates. The HR Manager is responsible for their 'People Programme' and ensures that line managers receive quarterly training on team management skills and personal development.
Individual team leaders are empowered to take their teams for lunches/dinners to celebrate success. This is not confined to client teams but to cross working teams on new business pitches who always celebrate or even commiserate together over dinners/drinks/lunches. As well as team events Meteorite also reward teams with shopping vouchers and spot prizes. This year all of the account handlers were subject to 'Ad Academy' monthly meetings focusing on specific skill sets ranging from new Business to Finance with a mix of internal and external speakers. After the sessions account handlers socialise together. Meteorite’s creatives often get to go to creative inspirational sessions ranging from visiting exhibitions to having external speakers. Meteorite also repeated Peter Birkholn's 'Insights' workshop and training. This is where team members have a chance to explore the attributes of their individual personality and discover new ways to work together so that their personalities compliment each other.
Quarterly employee awards are announced in Meteorite’s company meetings. Prizes include shopping vouchers, champagne and chocolates and activity such as a sailing day at Cowes. Employees are rewarded extra holiday after 3 full years and another 1 after 4 years and a Sabbatical after 5 years. Team leaders are empowered to reward team members with instant surprise and delight prizes including lunches, sweets and vouchers. Those who have achieved best practice are often made an example of in company meetings. Instant reward for New Business leads can amount to £100-£1000, recruitment £1000, award winning work - dinners, weekend away, spa days.
