Team Angel’s covert operation for North West Business Masters
Our directors were thrilled when they recently discovered that Angel Solutions staff have been secretly conspiring to nominate the company and CEO for prestigious business awards!
As a result of the team’s efforts, Angel Solutions Ltd was named as a finalist in two different categories at the North West Business Masters Awards 2016 — for Social Responsibility and for Employer of the Year!
Everyone got involved and contributed their honest opinions about what it’s like to work for Angel. Here are a few of their quotes:
Management treat us like real people. It doesn’t feel like a stern top-down hierarchy. Our managers are part of the team, just like all of us.
Monthly innovation days give everyone the freedom to create and reflect about anything and everything. There couldn’t be a more innovative environment!
People work better when they smile. Our company smiles a lot! We like to be extra friendly, surprising and delight people when they come to see us or our products.
We are encouraged to do training courses and can access extra study leave (even if it isn’t directly connected to our role).
I love the ‘Pitch your charity’ day — we let staff present on causes they care about and then we all rally behind the different causes and do what we can to help.
Angel are refreshingly open with their financial information, which shows trust in their staff, and helps you feel like you have a tangible stake in the company’s success.
The leaders care and understand about family life.
We get paid a little more every month, have an extra two weeks off at Christmas, AND get our birthday’s off!
Time to celebrate!
On Thursday 10th March 2016, ten of our team attended the Business Masters North West Awards ceremony in Manchester and had a wonderful evening celebrating business talent from across the region.
