We are proud to be voted one of The Sunday Times Top 25 Best Big Companies to Work For 2014 by our employees, achieving 16th place. As we recognise that if we are going to achieve our ambition then we have to invest in our people as they are 100% key to success. We offer competitive salaries, a flexible benefits package, industry leading training and excellent career progression opportunities. We also operate a share incentive plan giving employees the opportunity to buy shares in Spirit, matched by the Company.
We have developed an award winning online training portal under the name of The Training Tree which includes clear career pathways giving employees the opportunity to grow their careers and reach their full potential. We also offer a Graduate Trainee Programme.
Spirit is a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer and we are leading the way in the industry in terms of training and developing through work based learning and qualifications. We offer five apprenticeship qualifications which have been specifically designed to map business as usual in a pub environment so employees can gain skills and qualifications while working.
We have a suite of fun and engaging communication channels to ensure employees are engaged and updated with changes in the business and understanding of the big priorities. Our CEO has a very clear vision and he and our senior management regularly seek to engage employees through listening groups, team briefings and even over a beer down the pub!
We want to ensure that our employees continue to see Spirit as a great place to work and continue to check engagement levels through our annual engagement survey and quarterly pulse surveys. We maintain high levels of engagement and focus through effective communications and through our internal engagement activity.
