What is it like to work for Pegasus

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
Pegasus’s number one investment is in their people, their growth and their development. 19% of the team have been with the company for five years or more and 36% of the PR team that are now at Account Director level or above have started as junior members of the team. In 2016 Pegasus invested £500 per head in L&D, as well as drawing on a suite of shared resources, such as online and e-learning packages and internal training modules devised and delivered by the L&D team. Each person receives a tailored L&D programme called ‘GROW’, based upon the agency values and behaviours. To ensure a consistent approach to the L&D, all Line Managers are trained in the art of excellent leadership and good people management. Pegasus’s ambition is to never lose someone due to a lack of personal growth or development opportunity, but with 71% of annual appraisals complete and 41 promotions confirmed to date, they are confident in protecting this goal.

Two-way dialogue and transparent interaction is openly encouraged at Pegasus. In fact, some of their pivotal changes in recent years have been the result of staff feedback, such as the creation of the five Pegasus behaviours and the company’s move to Brighton. The company have established countless regular channels for people to feed in their suggestions, from contributing at internal peer group meetings, being invited to provide formal feedback on new initiatives or simply meeting Simon the MD for lunch and a chat. To strengthen staff insights further, Pegasus have recently invested in a formal online engagement tool called ‘HIVE’. HIVE sends bi-weekly micro surveys to all staff, providing real-time data and acting as a barometer for the overall engagement of people on a range of workplace matters. The company also run an internal group called Culture Club, which acts as a working group focusing on staff wellbeing, social and charity events.

After a period of huge growth and success in the last two years, Pegasus held a Vision Day in July this year. This day began with staff entering work to find an office filled with balloons and a gift of a new branded Moleskine notebook for each employee. Pegasus then decamped from the office to a local venue near the seafront for a half-day session, the purpose of which was to recommunicate the company’s shared purpose, values and vision. Whilst there staff were asked to contribute ideas and suggestions to the new company value ‘Take Pride’. The day ended with a champagne address from the Managing Director, followed by an enjoyable evening out!
