One team. One mission
Unsworth people are consulted and participate in the development of corporate strategy, ensuring that their voice and the interests of their customers are always heard. Directors brief their colleagues at regular meetings on company performance and objectives, inviting feedback on proposed strategies.
Staff development programmes are built around each individual team member, starting at induction. Appraisal, progression planning, training plans and reviews are used to help individuals realise their potential. Mentoring and buddy schemes support new and junior staff through their earliest internal and external training.
Healthy & happy
Workplace wellbeing is a strategic component of our staff development programme. We support external schemes like ‘cycle to work’, while social committees host sports events and initiatives that improve the working environment, opening up outside space and enhancing the physical work space.
