Working For Us

Workplace Culture

BID Services have a strong workplace culture driven by our core values:

  • Innovation
  • Professional
  • Quality
  • Caring

We embrace equality and diversity. In fact, over 35% of our employees have a disability. We work within a culture of respect, diversity and inclusion.

BID promote an engaging culture with mechanisms in place that allow employees to be able to raise matters of concern and be involved as much as possible in decisions that affect the way work is done:

  • Regular supervision sessions
  • Team meetings
  • Working groups
  • Employee surveys
  • Information and Consultation of Employment (ICE) Forum

Employees are encouraged to participate in fundraising and community events that make a difference to service users we support. We celebrate our successes at staff conferences and through our corporate events.

We recognise the advantages of effective team working and that some employees thrive on a challenging role and having a high degree of autonomy at work. Health and wellness and achieving work life balance is equally important, and therefore we have flexible working systems in place.

Our culture encourages career development with training, learning and development opportunities that support personal growth.

Career Progression

BID are an Investor in People investing generously in training, learning and development and offering a wide range of regular in-house training and access to external training to develop skills and career.

There are in-house management development programs and sponsorship to pursue formal professional qualifications. We recognise the benefits of such investment to develop knowledge, skills and abilities so that everyone can reach their full potential.

Following an equal opportunities ethos, there are many internal development and progression opportunities advertised internally so that employees can gain new skills in a different job role.

Through professional supervision practices, line managers review progress and are constantly looking for ways to move people on in their careers. Supervision allows for regular performance management with open communication that enables employees to receive praise, recognition and respect for achievements, further contributing to engagement, motivation, autonomy, trust and development.

There are a range of informal recognition schemes in place that acknowledge employees' dedication and contributions.
