We believe that happy, well-trained and motivated staff lead to a better working environment and better customer relationships.

Our ethos

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.

Our Values

No shiny shoes
We are ‘construction’ through and through. We’re used to getting our hands dirty and our feet wet. Meet us on site, or at the office – the choice is yours.
Keep it simple
We are here to simplify, not complicate; making clever things that work and helping our customers implement them safely. We don’t use 50 words when a few will do. We don’t waste time or effort.
Knowledge is power
We are voracious consumers of knowledge and we dish it out too. Skills and training are hugely important investments at SCS, feeding our innovation and market relevance; making our customers look good in front of theirs.
We know what promises are
Promises are a serious business - solemn and sacred. More than words on a page or said in a meeting. We understand that you’ll need to base yours on ours. We always repay trust in full.
Humans only
Equality and empathy are at the core of our company and we approach both our staff and our clients with the utmost respect. We don’t tolerate unfair treatment and discrimination in any aspect of our company culture. Subscribe to our values, contribute to our community, and you can be one of our gang!

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.”
