About National Governing Body


What is it like to work for National Governing Body

My Manager
My Manager
All managers have been trained on the 'measuring success' process, including how to agree SMART objectives, give effective feedback and assess performance. Managers recognise and reward colleagues in their teams in a number of informal and ad-hoc ways. These range from 'thank yous', notes from a member of the leadership team or CEO, a team lunch out, an afternoon off, food and drink. In addition, managers are encouraged to nominate their team members for formal recognition through the colleague Awards and Colleague Recognition events throughout the year.

They have numerous events arranged to encourage team bonding. During the BTE week, an all colleague day takes place. This is where they organise social events with dinner for all colleagues to join together outside of working hours. This often includes social tennis tournaments for colleagues to take part in. These activities are a great way of team members relaxing and building not just working relationships but also friendships with their fellow team mates.

My Company

They have a bi-annual work and a wellbeing assessment programme. This assessment measures the impact of work on colleagues’ wellbeing and supports their belief that wellbeing is directly related to performance. The results of the survey inform organisation wide initiatives and team feedback sessions lead to team action plans to ensure that issues are addressed on a local team level. In addition, each area of the organisation nominates a work and wellbeing representative that are part of a team who feedback, advise of issues, review initiatives and ensure two way communication in between the assessments.
