RLB Academy was set up specifically to focus on development of all the staff to ensure consistency of knowledge, skills and behaviours in whatever role is being performed and to ensure that all their staff are given the training, education and development opportunities they need to enable them to fulfil the requirements of their jobs and to achieve their potential in line with their PDP's. As RLB continues to expand, so do the Academy initiatives to ensure that RLB fulfil the needs of all their people and all their businesses including a drive on service delivery competence this year to exceed client demands in the tough economy.
An example of matching charitable funds was in February 2010 when all staff were given the opportunity to work for an hour for nothing in aid of the Haiti Appeal. They raised £6000.00 which was made up of £3000 from staff with £3000 matched funds from the company. They do not have a set upper limit but decide on any limits on a case by case basis. RLB try to give each unit/office a high degree of freedom and autonomy so that they feel they "own" their programme.
Rider Levett Bucknall believe in a culture of recognition to ensure that everyone is given verbal and other forms of recognition and reward, which has been established as part of their Behavioural Principles. They benchmark salaries and benefits at least annually to ensure that the employees are offered salaries and benefits in the upper quartile of the industry. RLB continually seek to offer flexible benefits which allow their employees to ensure that they are able to make the most of tax and NI efficient schemes e.g. purchasing bicycles, childcare vouchers etc plus SMART pension scheme which allows Employer NI savings to be paid to their employee's pension pots and interest free loans for season tickets and gym.
