Supporting career goals
Catherine and Robin have instilled a culture where support and aspiration go hand in hand. This approach has been highlighted in our Pinstone Ladder series of blogs, which showcase the power of personal development within the business. Being helped to achieve career goals scored a total of 181 points out of 200 in our staff survey.
The role of the senior team and knowledge sharing
Knowing there’s always someone to reach out to for advice is a big plus in our business. As one of the team explained in our survey, it’s all about “feeling you’re supported, like you belong within the business, like you’re moving forward with your career and you’re striving to be the best you can be.”
Mentoring, regular staff training and team sharing sessions all contribute to a culture of openness and honesty.
Happiness improves performance
A study carried out by the University of Warwick showed that employees who are happy at work are up to 12% more productive when compared with those who are unhappy.
Responses to our own survey wholeheartedly agree, scoring 192 points out of 200.
