Consistent messaging is at the heart of everything that Tusker do. The Senior Management Team ensure that all information which is distributed throughout the organisation is in accordance with the company's goals and objectives, while remaining accessible and engaging for the teams. The CEO and Senior Leadership Team embody most of the values which have been incorporated within the vision and objectives of the organisation. Committed to a familial approach to the organisation, the Senior Leadership Team have an open door policy where employees are encouraged to share ideas to maximise the success of the company. The leadership team are unafraid of change and are willing to review ideas from all levels of the company at various opportunities. The CEO and CFO have both been recognised for their commitment to the business and its development with awards from a prestigious publication. David Hosking, CEO has in 2016 been awarded the "CEO of the Year" and David Brockwell, CFO has been awarded "CFO of the Year" by Finance Monthly. Tusker itself has been recognised as a whole for its ethical and sustainable development practices. Each Director personally meets new starters in order to welcome them into the company in order to foster good relationships from the outset, while also sharing key information about working practices and company policies. The Senior Management Team all attend the communications meeting on a quarterly basis in order to be available to answer queries and respond to questions which might arise from the information being shared. The CEO has just agreed to lead a team of 20 in a charity fundraising event, tough mudder, which is a muddy assault course over 12km.

Tusker have several "break-out" areas which are equipped with comfortable seating, food preparation equipment and drinks machines which enable employees to switch off from work during their breaks. Additionally, they have televisions available for employees to watch in these spaces, as well as activities including darts and table tennis available for staff to participate in. Tusker also run a bike hire scheme for employees to enhance fitness levels and a greener form of transport. Each team member has the ability to turn their phone to "do not disturb" in order to aid focus on their roles or to complete tasks without interruption. Tusker actively encourages this practice. Tusker carefully monitors the skill sets of individuals and ensures staff are in appropriate roles. Further training is provided for those who require support, as is a change of role for those who find their current skillset isn't matched to their existing role.

In 2016 Tusker have canvassed employees regarding voluntary work for charity and over 40% have responded in favour of committing to a new initiative. They have approached ‘Business in the Community’ to look to introduce a scheme during 2017. Under this initiative at Tusker each employee can receive an additional days paid holiday to volunteer for a charitable project of their choosing or work with the charity nominated by business in the community. The company charity is the Teenage Cancer Trust for whom they have raised over £30,000 to date. Every year a number of Tusker staff undertake a range of activities to raise money, these have included 100mile bike rides, the Great North Run, and Tough Mudder. Additionally, every Easter, each employee is requested to buy an additional Easter Egg which are sent to teenagers on cancer wards locally. Additionally, they have in the past supported local schools in the area, and have planted trees locally in order to continue to minimise environmental impact as part of Tusker’s carbon neutral status.
