About Orchid Group

What is it like to work for Orchid Group

My Manager
My Manager
Skills Pledge is a partnership between the Government and Orchid. This is a public commitment to help all employees to develop their basic skills and enable them to work towards relevant, valuable qualifications. People are the lifeblood of the Orchid business, without their passion, commitment and motivation, Orchid would not continue to prosper. When times are tough, many companies make the mistake of viewing staff training and incentives as non-essential and start looking at ways to trim their overheads. This in itself is a false economy. Orchid believe by recruiting, training and motivating their staff they will reduce staff turnover, improve moral and motivation and increase productivity - ultimately leading to increased profits. This is a people business, nothing more and nothing less.

At Orchid they want everyone to enjoy working with them, both whilst they are at their place of work and also when they are enjoying their personal leisure time. Orchid understand that a work life balance is important and to give you an extra helping hand they have introduced “Orchid Concierge” which is a re launch of the Time & Knowledge brochure. Time & Knowledge are here to give you an extra hand to help you take care of all those jobs you have to do but don’t have the time to sort out, or the knowledge as to who are the best people to use. They will put you in touch with suppliers who can accomplish the jobs you need doing, across a variety of services that range from the ordinary to the unexpected. Whether you’re planning a party, looking for a plumber, arranging a holiday or searching for the perfect gift, they can help.
