At WarrensOffice, we realise that the quality and well-being of our staff are essential to our customer’s total satisfaction and therefore the success of our business. We seek to recruit staff in all parts of the business who share our passion for great customer service and we are committed to looking after them. We ensure all staff are given on-site training covering products, sales and Health & Safety. All members of the team are encouraged to join our private healthcare scheme and after a period of 12 months as permanent members of staff all become eligible to join the company profit share scheme. The company’s progress against sales and profitability targets is shared with every member of the team through regular updates by management, and staff are encouraged to ‘make a difference’ by proposing sales initiatives and cost saving proposals.
The happiness of our staff is proved by the fact that many of them have worked for us for many years.
Being part of the wider community matters to us. We are pleased to be gold sponsors of the local not-for-profit theatre, which provides an artistic programme of drama, dance, music and comedy for the City and surrounding area. We regularly support local schools and other community bodies, both financially and by donating products, and revenues from toner recycling are given to a teenage cancer charity. The Managing Director is a board director of Winchester BID, a community backed initiative to energise the city centre, and our staff also give up their time to share their knowledge and expertise with students.
We are proud of our environmental credentials and we are committed to reducing our environmental impact by implementing a robust system of environmental management. We have already achieved ISO 14001 accreditation status and more recently we became Carbon Smart Gold Certified. Frequent audits by the regulatory body ensure that we constantly stretch ourselves to operate sensitively and responsibly. By joining our local environmental management group, Winchester Action for Climate Change, we commit ourselves to managing and reducing the significant environmental impact of local business. As well as adhering to stringent environmental standards in our own processes and waste management, we also promote and supply Happy Planet products to customers who share our concerns about our environmental impact.
