What is it like to work for Pulsant Limited

My Manager
My Manager
One to One meetings are frequently held with all the applicable Managers in relation to their development plans, which are put in place as required to help improve weaker areas. Coaching and mentoring is available and some have found this to be of great benefit. Pulsant have had external facilitators leading them through a development programme and are looking to reinforce this again next year. There are various ways of measuring the performance of the company’s Managers, for example the output from the internal Pulse Survey. The company’s bi-annual appraisals, review, assessment of goals and functional KPI's is another very useful tool when assessing performance. 360 feedback was only introduced this year and is a very useful means when assessing performance and impact on various areas of the business.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Pulsant allocate money each year for supporting good causes and work to assist within their local community to ensure they are making a very worthy contribution that their team can be proud of. Pulsant also give discounts to registered charities who have services with them. A focus group is in place to agree and drive forward their 'Giving Something Back' scheme and each year they look at new community events and charitable opportunities for Pulsant to be part of. This year this has included volunteering for Action for Children, where teams helped restore the outdoor area of a home for homeless people. Pulsant has also sponsored a number of employees where they have been involved in fundraising events. A team of females in the accounts department wore fake beards for the month of December, taking pictures of their progress throughout. It was a novel and different idea which raised a lot of interest and money for 'Beating Bowel Cancer'. Pulsant have also been involved with working with homeless and also disabled and disadvantaged people. This work has included discussions around the future ahead and steps they may take to get back into the workplace. An example of this involved guidance on a CV and coaching on how to present themselves in an interview.
