About OpenBet


What is it like to work for OpenBet

My Manager
My Manager
OpenBet supports employee development via a plethora of activities, such as, Brown Bag sessions to share knowledge across the organisation, workshops for hands on programming activities, supervised Google hangouts with subject matter experts at hand to explain specific subjects and topics, internal and external training sessions on soft skills, managerial skills as well as methodologies and technical skills.  Traditional classroom training is used in conjunction with e-learning activities and remote teaching via conference systems and remote internet meetings. Training plans are developed for specific roles within the organisation to help new comers or people being promoted internally, handle their new role within OpenBet.
Wellbeing

The company are currently in the process of launching a Wellness Programme. This includes a Heath and Well-being intranet site providing information and advice on a range of topics to employees.  It will promote a range of health benefits, including discounted gym membership, free fruit, and the cycle to work scheme. Part of the programme is also the organisation of company sports teams: football (already in place), basketball, badminton, squash and golf.  They also encourage employees to take part in charity sports events, e.g. Great British 10K run.  They are also beginning health and well-being sessions and workshops, for example, 'neck and back workshops'. 
Fair Deal

The company have in place a 'Spot Bonus Award Policy'. This is awarded by management on a special basis when employees have made a particularly noteworthy contribution, above and beyond the call of duty.   This programme provides managers with a valuable tool to motivate, reward and recognise those employees who distinguish themselves through extra efforts. Significant short-term contributions earns a bonus of £200. A Significant medium/longer-term contribution earns the employee £300-500. A special recognition award to sustained leadership performance over a considerable timeframe, and/or the accomplishment of mission critical, company-wide projects of a major scale is awarded with £1000.  To achieve maximum recognition and motivational value, managers are encouraged to provide the employee with a letter of commendation, which will be included in the employee's HR file.   They also have a colleague recognition programme; colleagues can nominate an individual or team who has made a measurable contribution to the company; if successful, every quarter a nominated individual wins £1000, or if a team, £2000.
