To say thanks to our employees who have been with us for over a year we give them the day off on their birthday!
All our employees and their families are invited to our annual Family Fun Day. Whilst we can't guarantee the weather, there's fun for all the family whatever your age.
We love supporting the local community as well as our employees, so whenever our employees are raising money for charity, we'll donate an additional £100 to their chosen cause.
We understand the value of recognising our employees for their hard work. So every few months we ask our employees to nominate a colleague who they think has done an exceptional job. The winners are invited to afternoon tea and presented with an Award and vouchers as a thank you.
Every manager's (and director's) door is quite literally, always open to every employee. This policy has encouraged open communication, feedback and discussion throughout the business.
Every year our Chairman and Directors host a dinner for all of our employees who have worked at Swansway Group for 5 years or more. As well as scrumptous food and great entertainment, employees who have reach a 5 or 10 year milestone receive a Silver or a Gold pin as recognition.
We have various options to lease vehicles at reduced rates via our 'Car Benefit Scheme'. Depending on your length of service, the scheme is available for yourself or for use by a family member or friend. We also offer a number of 'friends and family' discounted sales offers throughout the year.
We want our employees to have a happy and healthy work-life balance, and offer a competitive holiday allowance which increases with length of service.
As a multi-franchise retailer we have found that flexible working employees work for us! We are always happy to discuss proposed changes to employees' working hours and provided those changes fit with our business needs we will do our best to accommodate them.
We understand how difficult it can be to balance managing childcare and work, and offer access to a government approved childcare voucher scheme, which allows employees the option of exchanging part of their monthly gross salary for childcare vouchers.
We always strive to conduct our activities to the highest standards, but occasionally things may go wrong. Our existing procedures are supported by an independant and confidential hotline service which is available to all employees.
We provide training employees need to help develop specific skills required for their job and to progress their careers; including both manufacturer specific training and tailored in-house personal development programmes. We recruit for attitude and develop your skills as you need them.
We are keen as an employer to ensure that we offer our employees competitive salaries in comparison to others within the motor industry, which is why each year we review the salaries of every employee across the group. Whilst we cannot guarantee an increase, we can at least ensure that we offer fair pay for the contributions that our employees make.
We run a number of sales incentives throughout the year; rewarding high performance with financial or experience style benefits. We've been horse racing, to track days and go-karting!
Every year we fund the cost of flu jabs for our employees; the jabs take place on site to ensure everyone who wants one has access to them.
This government led scheme allows us to loan our employees bikes and associated safety equipment as a tax free benefit.
As an employee you will be assessed for automatic inclusion into our Company Pension Scheme upon joining. For qualifying employees, along with your contribution, we contribute 1% of your total gross pay each month. Qualifying employees will also benefit from the Company Life Assurance scheme which provides four times basic annual salary.
