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
The company was recently (summer 2017) awarded Gold accreditation against the Investors in People (IIP) Standard, joining the top seven percent of accredited organisations across the UK, demonstrating its commitment to high performance through good people management.
In the report written following our most recent IIP assessment (July 2017), the Assessor noted: “Values are at the heart of how Group SCS operates with its clients, partners, employees, suppliers and external subcontractors. It is embedded in ‘how we do things around here’ to day to day approach to working with each other and with clients and supplier partners.”
She added: “A lot of work has been done on the recognition and reward strategy to ensure that those who do perform very well are rewarded appropriately… “The low staff turnover and high retention rates support the appreciation of Group SCS as a good employer.”
Allan Meek, Managing Director of Group SCS, said: “We are delighted to have been reaccredited with the Investors in People standard. Our people are at the heart of our organisation and staff wellbeing is extremely important to us.”
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.
Managing 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.”
