Our Colleagues, friends and families enjoyed a day of fun and football at Saffron Dynamos in Leicester on 14th July.
Enjoying 40ft inflatables, tasty food, including an amazing South African style Braai barbecue and fun stalls, everyone had a great time.
The excitement built in the afternoon for the big football match… Hastings Direct vs Edgar’s Gift, our Leicester charity partner. At 3pm Edgar’s Gift kicked off, with both teams giving it their all for a great game of football. As the final whistle blew, Edgar’s Gift were the winners, beating our Leicester team 4-3.
The day raised an amazing £960 which will all go to our charity partner Edgar’s Gift to support the great work they continue to do in the Leicestershire area.
The shifts in customer service teams are quite colleague friendly. There is free tea and coffee in the call centre, and a subsidised Costa Coffee and canteen. There are lots of incentives to earn more, and a decent social life.
It has a really positive environment with everyone who works there being very helpful. The managers really do go out of their way to assist you. There are a lot of benefits and rewards at Hastings Direct which if you are doing well are quite easy to achieve.
There is a well-rounded approach to the wellbeing of all colleagues, including an inclusive approach to wellbeing activities. Hastings Direct aims to roundly develop colleagues and set them up for future careers within the company.
There is a wonderful work environment, with a strong sense of team work which purveys throughout the business. And there is a sense of friendly competition which works to heighten this.
As an employer, Hastings Direct offers a lot of company benefits to all employees which are fantastic and I feel this is quite unique. The company culture is inclusive and encourages everyone to participate in local causes.
All employees are well looked after, respected and recognised for the hard work we do for the company. It is a great experience to be working with such amazing team. It much easier for me to balance my work and personal life.
It’s a great place to work with amazing benefits, support and colleagues. Lots of hands on support. Amazing rewards for achieving targets and also plenty of time to get together as a team outside of work and bond with your colleagues.
The company culture, management structure and general atmosphere is really good. The share scheme and Hastings Direct rewards are also fantastic for staff.
