June High Achievers was an all expenses trip to Cannes. Taking in speedboat trips, fine dining and of course the best beach bars our attendees look to be having an fantastic time.
High Achievers Trips are just one of the ways we reward our teams here at Investigo for more information see http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQprV
Our people enjoy coming into work because they are surrounded by an eclectic group of individuals, each of whom share a common purpose: to make a difference. The collaborative environment encourages people not only to work together but also to socialise together too. Our football team, netball team, squash club, LGBT group Investigay and regular after work drinks, all mean that there is no shortage of opportunities to get together with the rest of the company outside of work, should you wish to.
At work, you will find your colleagues at Investigo are exceptional in terms of their desire to build meaningful relationships with their candidates and clients. Central to this are our values of integrity, passion, commitment, fairness and expertise. It is important that every person we employ also shares these values to ensure that our culture continues to attract and retain the very best talent within the industry.
We offer a real meritocratic environment, with progression open to every individual within the business. Clear guidelines on the qualifications for advancement are widely publicised and open to you regardless of tenure.
We aim to develop people and provide coaching and mentoring to facilitate career progression and promotion from within. Our promotion record to date is Associate Consultant to Director in 6 years. You will find us more autonomous than many of our competitors due to everyone in the business conducting their working day with commitment and integrity to be the very best they can be.
Our Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) is designed to attract and retain individuals who understand how to grow a profitable business and create real value. If you aspire to run your own business at some stage, then you should be talking to us.
Regularly recognising and rewarding personal contribution across our workforce is vital to maintaining our culture. Our compensation package is at the heart of rewarding our employees (both support and fee-earners) for their efforts.
Our reward scheme is simple and transparent, designed to attract and retain the best talent in the industry. We have complete visibility for
fee-earners over their earning potential and our top-up platinum scheme ensures fairness across the business for fee-earners.
We bring the whole company together twice a year to say thank you - at the Christmas Party and our Summer Conference. We recognise
our High Fliers with quarterly trips overseas to luxury destinations such as Iceland, Menorca,
Ibiza and Courchevel.
I have been working at Investigo full-time (More than a year)
A year into my Investigo journey, I can honestly say that it's been the happiest workplace in my career so far. My team are a friendly, hardworking and intelligent bunch and an absolute joy to work alongside with. This coupled with a wonderfully supportive boss, challenging & rewarding work and a good work-life balance means getting up to come to work every day is genuinely a joy. The senior management team are very capable leaders with great work ethic and extremely approachable - something I have witnessed and experienced first-hand.
When I decided to look for a company with a supportive boss, great work and a stable yet growing and fun workplace, in that order, I knew I had set a tall order. To my great delight though, all these expectations have been happily satisfied and indeed, exceeded expectations since joining Investigo.
Great workplace overall and thoroughly excited to be a part of Investigo's journey :)
While our work life balance is generally quite good and much better compared to other companies, I feel the working hours could be reduced slightly, i.e., 8.30-5, 9-5.30 or something along those lines. This is because longer hours do not necessarily equate to higher productivity and given that most of us live outside the city, time taken for commuting make a long day even longer leaving little time for anything else. I feel given Investigo’s great ability (& culture) to listen and action, this is something that could be looked into and changes made, even if it means a 30-minute reduction.
Some other suggestions are bi-weekly fruit basket and healthier vending machine snacks maybe :)
Advice to Management
Great company, culture and leaders - please continue doing what you are doing and the company will go places :)
Wasted 30 mins on a call about a job that clearly didn't exist - she wouldn't tell me the name of the company even. Invited me in to meet at a time/date and then never sent an address. Worst bit - she asked what A Levels I have (for an executive role!),
