Me and Leigh-Ann (trusted beautician friend also in Norwich) spent the morning at Kaplan accounting training , who offer accounting and business training in Norwich. They are a great group of people and we could tell that they really look after each other as a team.

Kaplan really strive to be an excellent and caring company. Their real drive is to be on the Top times 100 wellbeing list! What a wonderful list to be on as an employer. They are now on the ‘watch’ list, so I wish them all the best in achieving this goal. They very much deserve it! Number one on the list at the moment is Simply business. It’s a really interesting list to read. I think job seekers should definitely check this out before going on interviews!

When I used to be employed in dentistry. The dentist often used to ask me why they don’t get hard working loyal staff. The answer really is “Are you making them feel valued?”. If the answer is no, then you can understand why morale is low in the work place. I think it’s awesome that Kaplan seems to have recognized this. Their Norwich branch won their internal ‘wellbeing’ competition month as the staff really focused on taking those important lunch breaks and time away from computer etc. The staff were then allowed to pick themselves a treat, which is where I came in! They chose to have me come in and do their nails as part of a pamper party.

As an employer even the little things can help keep your staff feeling valued. I see more and more companies going this way, which is just lovely.
