About The Penspen Group


What is it like to work for The Penspen Group

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Penspen Ltd provide ‘How to Give Up’ literature on noticeboards, as well as providing information about ‘Stop Smoking’ services. The flexible benefits programme give staff access to a range of comprehensive Health Assessments that help them make more informed decisions about their lifestyle and general health. They also have an extensive stress management policy. As part of this policy, they are committed to monitor workloads and working hours so as to ensure that people are not overburdened. They are also committed to identify all workplace stressors and conduct risk assessments to eliminate or control them. This summer, employees were encouraged to participate in the fortnightly “Ramble and Roll” in Richmond Park which gave keen walkers and cyclists the opportunity to undertake a circular route of the park on pleasant summer evenings after work. They have an excellent flexitime system allowing for a healthy work life balance including regular early finishes if desired, as well as up to one day’s flexi leave per month.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Penspen Ltd say that the e-cards at Christmas are a great idea as they are both sustainable and a great way of freeing up additioanl funds for charity. They also encourage small enterprise giving, supporting charity bungee jumps etc. The weekly 'Ramble and Roll' through Richmond Park also requests a small charitable donation to be given in order to take part. A number of their employees help and support local fundraising activities via small group enterprise eg. by raising money for their nearest Elizabeth Fitzroy Home, which provides support for people with disabilities.


Fair Deal
Fair Deal
They reward employees both monetarily with generous pay, bonus, flexible benefits and pension plans, and in broader terms with their commitment to training, support, recognition and opportunities for career development. As well as custom employee award and recognition schemes such as the GEM awards, they also invest a great deal of time in their in-house training programme so that their employees feel fully challenged, developed and rewarded, not only financially but also socially and professionally.
