As an Investor in People, we are proud to have been recognised as one of Britain’s top employers in several independent reviews:
We have been on the Sunday Times 'Top 100 Companies to Work For' list every year since 2007.
We placed 24th in the list of 'Best Large Companies to Work For' in the UK, the highest placed recruitment firm.
We also ranked 1st in Scotland and 11th in the West Midlands in the regional lists.
Best Companies have accredited us with three stars for 'World Class Employee Engagement'.
All new starters undertake a 2-day induction and our in-house Training division offers Apprenticeships and modular Training programmes designed to cover every level within our business.
Employees can work with our specialist team to build their development pathway according to their goals and aspirations.
Monthly Newsletters and regular e-shots ensure everyone is kept up to date with developments across our business and industry.
This also enables us to showcase success, achievements and work within the local community or for charity. Each edition includes news stories about featured colleagues and teams.
Our benefits package includes additional holiday entitlement that increases with length of service. Perkbox, offers high street discounts, savings and freebies and an award-winning Share Scheme.
By offering our employees a genuine stake in the business, Pertemps strongly believes that our people will be more motivated and dedicated to their roles. Especially if, as a shareholder, the value of those shares increases as a direct result of your own hard work.
All our employees have 1-2-1's with their Managers and our flat structure ensures everyone also has access to our Board of Directors.
Our MDs regularly ‘walk the floor’ – visiting our branches and contract teams to speak to our teams in person.
From a pastoral care perspective, we offer an Employee Assistance Programme which gives our employees free access to qualified professionals via a 24-hour helpline should they need confidential, objective advice and support on a wide range of issues from personal, family crises, illness to financial problems.
Perkbox provides an integrated video channel with thousands of videos on fitness, cooking and general wellbeing for employees plus discounts at 5000+ Gyms and Salons nationwide.
There are also exclusive rates on healthcare and dental through Westfield Health and Denplan.
Pertemps believe that a “thank you” goes a long way and that, while money is a strong motivator, in itself it is not enough to keep motivation levels high so we show our appreciation to our staff in a number of ways:
Our Board of Directors remain close to the business and constantly monitor everybody’s progress at whatever level within the company.
Employees are directly congratulated on their achievements and Regional Directors arrange social events to celebrate success and encourage teamwork.
We also host an annual awards ceremony celebrating contribution to the business, achievements, long-service and commitment to local communities / charity.
The greatest accolade of each ceremony is the Connie Watts Award, named after our Founder and given by Tim Watts, Connie’s son. This award celebrates outstanding commitment and dedication to the role and company.
Support for local and national charities is always encouraged and supported, and we match funds raised by our employees in order to support their initiatives.
Fundraising is applauded and showcased company-wide in our monthly internal newsletters and at our annual awards ceremony.
It doesn’t matter who you are or where you've come from - as long as you’re passionate, hard-working and genuinely driven - you’ll fit in.
It is important to us that all our colleagues have the opportunity to help shape the future of the business. Together, we have produced a three-year strategy, supported by steering groups made up of colleagues from across the company to help move things forward. New lines of communication have been set up to ensure all our people know they have a voice – and will be listened to.
Join our family if you want to feel valued, have your voice heard and know your opinion matters.
We think we are a fantastic business but don't just take our word for it hear first hand what our people think
