About SmartWater Technology Limited


What is it like to work for SmartWater Technology Limited

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
SmartWater try and support their employee’s health and wellbeing. They are flexible in their approach to employees who require time off to attend personal appointments such as counselling or regular health checks. Employees are entitled to time off in lieu for any hours worked over their normal working hours and this time is normally taken at a time that is convenient to the employee as well as the organisation. Those who have families are given the opportunity to work flexible hours to enable them to attend important occasions such as child assemblies and sports days. They have an informal policy for monitoring employees based in the office. Employees away from the office are given daily worksheets to complete or an electronic diary, to which other members of staff have access. This ensures that the work/life balance is met.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
The company encourages all staff to be involved in fundraising events and such events are supported by all members of staff from team members up to director level. For example, the Company has recently been involved in a Hope House corporate challenge, whereby the Company was given £50 and had to use the money for fundraising events from 1st September 2009 to 30th November 2009, to raise as much money as possible. At last count they had raised over £2,000 with monies still being collected. This was achieved through raffles; name the baby competitions and cooking lunch for colleagues as well as the team of directors matching the total funds raised from the raffle. They recycle and regularly reuse materials where possible, including scrap metal, cardboard and paper. They also support the local community and annually, SmartWater provide work experience to students from local schools who are interested in gaining an insight and deeper understanding of the work they do and experiencing a working environment.
