Our people are our strength. We reward and recognise through incentives, training programmes, staff discount schemes, great benefits packages, Pride Awards, social committees and help to create an all-round great culture; with a love of great food in common.
The success of our company is based on developing, nurturing, and growing our people; making them a part of our journey and business goals.
As part of this we roll out various training courses and development programs to enable our people to drive us to the next level and themselves with career progression plans. We embed appraisals and succession plans, developing the next generation of leaders through investing in today’s people.
We engage with our employees in a number of ways to encourage the alignment of employee and business goals. Our employees are kept well informed of the performance of the company and our business direction through our annual business conference, monthly and triannual briefing meetings, communications via the internet, email and our internal "Staff Matters" magazine.
Our employee benefits package includes a contributory pension, life assurance, healthcare, social club, childcare vouchers, cycle to work scheme, staff restaurant and staff discount scheme, plus much more.
We also recognise success of our staff with monthly Pride Awards, nominated by our teams, for our teams. Our Pride Awards make us all inspired by one another and give us focus to ensure we deliver promises to our customers.
JOIN OUR TEAM
We listen to what our staff have to say and we really care about what they think. Every year we do an employee survey so we can recognise what is important to our people, celebrate success and help make our company a great place to work.
Our five core values (Customers First, Be the Best, Us before Me, Own it and Do it the Right Way) act as a guide for everything we say and do. By acting on these shared values and being inspired by them every day, we'll keep on growing as a company and keep on delivering on our promises to our customers - and each other.
Our core values of "Us before me" and "Do it the right way" focus on teamwork, supporting our local communities and balancing our hard with with a bit of fun. Whatever your interest, there's likely to be a sport, activity, night out or trip away that you'll be keen to get involed in.
We regularly hold a number of volunteering and charity fundraising events each year such as BBQ's, quiz nights, outdoor pursuits and much more.
