Are you creating the life you want?

Is the question we ask ourselves, everyday! Your life is a journey, it’s one we’d love to be part of, maybe we can help or enrich that journey? We’ve turned a traditional approach on its head. Usually businesses consider... what results do we want? And then… how can we get employees on board with that? We flipped it and asked… if employees have complete clarity on their personal goals and are inspired to focus and learn, what could we both achieve? So if a university isn't upset when students graduate and leave, let's acknowledge that our team and any future members are on their own journey. The more we teach you, the better we treat you, the longer your journey with us will be. Below is snapshot of the area we help our team.

Life coach

A free, confidential life coach visits monthly to help employees plan the steps necessary to achieve their goals.

PDB

As further encouragement, employees receive £150 per year personal learning budget to be spent on any activity that involves learning something new. It’s been used for lessons on scuba diving, cooking, sign language, dancing, driving and much more.

MAPS

Clear career progression pathways have been created with an internal management development programme and the introduction of personal development plans ensures that every employee can access the right support to achieve their goals.

Work Life Balance

As the first dealer Group in Norwich to address work life balance by offering 5-day rotas through to offering choices between pay awards or extra annual leave, employees choosing what best meets their needs is the focus of the Group.

Colourworks

Colour Works to provide you with a personal profile that uses an accessible, memorable colour system to give you an insight into your typical behaviours and how you interact with others. The profile has been registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and not only is this useful for your personal development but it will also help you when dealing with customers, colleagues and even with your family and personal relationships.

MindSpan

Mindspan looks beyond the common ideas of positive thinking to help you examine how your daily mindset can be enhanced, modified and re-trained to unlock your potential and achieve new limits of performance and fulfilment. Naturally, this overflows into the personal space and better work/life balance, lower stress and greater personal satisfaction all lead to a healthier and happier you!
