Leek United’s a fantastic place to work! – Our Staff
24th June 2020
If you’re already a member of Leek United Building Society or if you’re thinking of becoming one, you’ll want to be sure we behave with integrity, that we have strong values and that we treat our employees well.
If you’re thinking of applying for a job with Leek United, you’ll want to know what it’s like to work for us.
Well in May, the renowned Best Companies organisation conducted an in-depth survey of our employees. And the results made us really proud.
More than 8 out of 10 colleagues said the following:
- Leek United is run on strong values and principles.
- I’m proud to work for Leek United and would recommend the Society as a great place to work.
- There’s great teamwork and a strong sense of fun and family.
- My manager talks openly and honestly with me.
- Our leader has a plan I believe in.
- I feel my job is secure.
- Leek United has a strong social conscience.
Some of the comments received from staff included:
“There’s a really great working atmosphere with a genuine concern for each employee. I feel able to approach anyone within the organisation – management are very open to ideas, listen to feedback and take appropriate actions.”
“The morale and caring nature of all our staff is second to none.”
“Senior management care about the health and wellbeing of all our employees.”
“The way the organisation has handled the Covid-19 situation has wowed me.”
“There have been numerous changes over the last 18 months. I feel these changes are for the better and I see a bright future ahead.”
"How amazing all the management have treated us. We’ve been kept up to date with all the important information. You’ve put lots of things in place for us to feel safe and happy at work in the current situation.”
“The spirit shown by our leadership during extremely testing times is extremely motivating and what makes Leek United so great.”
“The teamwork across the organisation, especially in these unprecedented times, is phenomenal. The communication from the leader is superb and his regular videos are heartfelt, informative and reassuring. The focus on health and wellbeing and the support available is fantastic and very refreshing, particularly in terms of the honesty and openness around mental health wellbeing. The overriding factor for me, and what makes us stand out from the rest of the industry, is the level of care and the personal service that we provide to our members.”
And here’s a word from our (proud!) HR Director, Tracey Johnson:
“In Leek United, we have strong values and we care about our staff. These values are being tested now more than ever in the current covid crisis. I must say there’s nothing quite so uplifting as hearing directly from our employees that they feel well treated and particularly that they love working for us. As the survey clearly conveyed, there’s a sense of teamwork, fun and family in our organisation that is second to none. And I certainly couldn’t be more proud of that."
