A piece of the action
Employee Attitude Survey
We actively encourage all our employees to contribute to the future success of the organisation and share their ideas and views.
The results of our Employee Attitude Surveys confirm that employees enjoy working for us, they feel part of a team, have good working relationships and receive help, support and resources to do their jobs effectively. They also indicate they are supported to do their job and are actively involved in the decision making processes.
Communication is an integral part of any organisation and we recognise this through regular Team Briefings, briefings with senior managers and our Director General. In addition, our intranet keeps everyone up to date on a daily basis and holds an invaluable raft of information including news and success stories, policies, events, a staff suggestion scheme and links to other useful sites.
We have a new state-of-the-art head office in Sheffield and all of our sites boast innovative designs and technology so wherever you are based you can be sure of a great working environment.
We also recognise the importance of our external environment and support this through recycling, car-share schemes and our cycle to work scheme.
Let’s be social
It’s not all work and no play… we hold employee events throughout the year to celebrate our hard work and success and to get together with our colleagues, and we have family events too.
Through our social events and fund raising we donate money to a chosen charity on an annual basis.
And South Yorkshire has lots to offer
Visitors to the world-famous city of steel are in for a surprise – Sheffield has more than four times as many trees as people! The old industrial sites are more likely to be stunning visitor attractions…standing amid 150 woodlands and 50 public parks in the city.
Also a centre of excellence for sports, the city holds over 30 major sporting events each year. For those who prefer exercising their credit card, Sheffield does not disappoint. Home to one of Europe’s largest shopping centres, Meadowhall, not to mention the boutiques of the Devonshire Quarter and Ecclesall Road, you can find plenty of opportunities to people watch in the many cafes and bars.
Rotherham and Barnsley are also perfect for exploring the great outdoors – there are seven country parks to explore, not to mention the numerous walking and cycling opportunities.
Doncaster, although also situated in a largely rural area, is home to one of the largest markets in the country, great shops and one of the UK’s top sports centres.
All of this nestles on the edge of the Peak District National Park – although more than a third of Sheffield actually lies within the Park amongst some of England’s most inspiring scenery.
