About Day Webster


What is it like to work for Day Webster

My Manager
My Manager
Day Webster have a mentor within the office who has decades of sales experience. Management have undertaken psychometric testing this year, which is used alongside their performance history to identify strengths and areas for training. The work is undertaken discretely on a one to one basis to allow Managers to be open about their difficulties and discuss what makes them tick. The programme has also allowed the company to be more specific with targets and to look at what really motivates senior staff, which has a natural drip down effect into the teams. The next step is to roll this out through the whole office. Performance within this business is measured on an ongoing basis and weekly margin reports are emailed out every Friday.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Day Webster have amended their budgets for perks and even driven them back into commission based incentives. The company offer market leading levels of commission for their sales staff, partly as a result of this and also the additional incentives that are paid to support staff offer direction and focus on what is expected of the workforce; however it also provides an immediate and measurable acknowledgement of personal effort. The organisation acts quickly to support areas that may see a spike in work output, either through IT infrastructure or by hiring staff to evenly spread the workload based upon feedback. Other smaller measures are taken, such as a vending machine full of healthy snacks and a fully automated coffee machine. Regular team nights allow employees to let their hair down with their colleagues and show tangible appreciation for hard work.
My Team
My Team
Day Webster organise team nights out like dinners, bowling and quasar etc on a quarterly basis. This can be between one team or between the whole office depending on the event. Also the company hold regular competitions within the office, which are all communicated through plasma TV screens set around the building. Day Webster have recently signed up with their local TopGolf for regular golf lessons on Thursday evenings, which is subsidised and has been well attended thus far. There have also been other initiatives such as boot camps over Summer. The office layout itself pushes interaction and integration, as they have removed several walls to create one big space on the sales floor. This was copied in the back office, but offices are adjacent so people can easily pass in and out of each one.
