We believe that happy, well-trained and motivated staff lead to a better working environment and better customer relationships. For Group SCS, employee engagement and our company values are not boxes to be ticked. It’s our way of ensuring the highest level of customer service, and continued success. Running a business with empathy and understanding results in a more enjoyable and fulfilling experience all round – from directors to apprentices, suppliers and customers.
Working for Group SCS
At Group SCS we pride ourselves in having happy and motivated employees. We attain a high standard of industry-leading customer service because our team is highly engaged and that shines through.
Our open client relationships are both a business strategy and a company-wide philosophy. The skills shortage is a genuine threat to our industry – to Group SCS, its customers and its competitors – so we’ll keep looking after our staff in the knowledge that it simply makes business sense. Our people know that we will look out for them and we actively show that we appreciate their hard work and dedication.
Investors In People
We were delighted to be awarded the Investors in People (IIP) We invest in people Gold accreditation for the second time in the summer of 2020.
We were first accredited with the Investors in People (IIP) standard in 1999 and have now held our IIP accreditation for over 20 years with our first three-year Gold accreditation being awarded in 2017.
Achieving a Gold accreditation – which only 17% of organisations achieve – means as a company we’ve got the policies in place but more than that, it means everyone – from Managing Director to apprentice – takes ownership for making them come to life.
Macarena Machado, Operations Manager at Group SCS, said: “It’s fantastic that our work around empowering our people and continuous improvement has been recognised. Our people are our most important asset and investing in them is key.”
Building Good Employer Guide
Group SCS has been included in the guide in five different years (2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017) and can be compared to other large national companies such as Mace.
The competition is judged by industry experts who look for companies that show they consider employees’ personal welfare and development including motivation, training, and pastoral care. As companies look to expand globally and adapt to the pressure of the new economic climate these areas are becoming more significant.
Director Allan Meek said: “It is a fantastic achievement to be compared against organisations much larger than ourselves.
“We spend a lot of time and effort ensuring we employ the best people in the industry, so it’s important they are happy in their jobs.”
