About NG Bailey


What is it like to work for NG Bailey

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
NG Bailey utilise opportunities to work with external partners as part of their approach to employee development. The company’s educational outreach activities are supported by employees from every level of the organisation, from apprentices to Executive Team Members. Individuals can find themselves undertaking the simplest of tasks, from organising a careers discussion with a class or year group to working as part of a team developing a day of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) related activities for 300+ students. This challenges them to use their existing management and leadership skills in a very different and unpredictable environment, as well as offering an opportunity to take part in something extremely rewarding. NG Bailey also work with existing clients to carry out “dragons den” type workshops, were they put forward a group from one of their talent programmes to work with clients who are looking for inventive ideas to tackling the problems they are facing in their own businesses. This provides a great opportunity to apply their strategic thinking skills to unusual problems whilst working to tight deadlines in a foreign environment.
Giving Something Back

Community forms part of NG Bailey’s responsible business strategy ‘One Approach’. Last year the company launched their first charity partnership with Macmillan. Chosen by their employees via a company-wide vote, the aim was to raise £50k within 12 months. Due to the passion, enthusiasm and team spirit, NG Bailey extended the partnership by a further six months to enable employees to continue with their fundraising. By doing this, the company raised almost double its target and enabled teams to break down silos, creating new working relationships within many of their divisions. They have also continued to match funds for other charitable activities that have amounted to £9,560 so far this year. For every person NG Bailey employ they will have helped another two young people to be more successful in their future careers. They’ve also launched Inspire, their award-winning STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) school engagement programme that aims to engage with over 5,000 young people by 2018. This year the company have engaged with 1,511 (3,007 in total) young people to encourage them to consider a career in engineering. Earlier this year, Cal Bailey the Sustainability Director was invited to join the Business in the Community (BITC) Yorkshire and Humber advisory board. As part of the board, Cal is working with businesses across the region to forge better relationships between business and society and looking at ways UK employers can create fairer opportunities for ex-offenders, disadvantaged young people, homeless and those recovering from addiction via a number of related programmes facilitated by BITC.

NG Bailey’s employees are regularly reminded of the company mission, vision and values via a number of communication methods. At each event hosted by NG Bailey throughout the year, the key messages and activities delivered throughout the events always relate back to the mission, vision and values. This year at the Senior Management Conference and as part of the team building activity, each of the groups had to produce a TV advert about NG Bailey. To succeed in the activity, each group would score points if they referenced the company’s mission, vision and values throughout. Each year the business also hold awareness weeks to update employees on key focus areas. These include European health and safety week and Responsible Business week. By hosting these weeks, it provides NG Bailey with the opportunity to reiterate key messages surrounding the mission, vision and values and how they apply to everything that the company do.
