Key Initiatives Implemented “We implemented the benchmarking of our roles at the beginning of 2019 – which is particularly exciting to me. It is comforting to know that all my colleagues are being rewarded correctly and fairly for their roles.” Tanya Johnson Director of People There have been a number of key initiatives rolled out through the company, and part of their purpose is to ensure our culture is one of fairness by also opening the hiring doors to groups of people whom otherwise not have been able to join – ensuring we are as accommodating as we can be to a diverse group of potential candidates. Some of these key initiatives include; 1 Evaluated all company roles and benchmarked salaries. We conducted this analysis using external data to ensure AFI remained impartial and accurate, and can make informed remuneration decisions. 2 Reinforced benchmarking standards in regards to recruitment. Additionally, we evolved our recruitment process to a standardised one, and followed up with recruitment training and best practice, including unconscious bias. 3 Relaunched our company values. One of the most influential changes, we wanted to showcase that values are a company cornerstone by integrating performance management structures, bonus structures, and reward/recognition policies.
We’re also excited to be introducing a new Leadership Development Framework in the near future, and take steps to always have a pipeline of diverse talent coming through the business! Findings from employee feedback survey Fantastic survey results with an employee approval rating of over… 90 % Note: this was conducted prior to current world events (pre-lockdown), however we still have some things to learn and are working hard to improve in all areas of employee satisfaction. We strive to offer all our people a values-driven environment, where everyone can make a difference both in their role and for the charities they support. This feeds into creating a diverse workforce, although we still have work to do to improve this. Sharing a common ethos, cemented by our evolved mission, vision, and core values, helps Animal Friends continue to improve, and offer a diverse workplace where our people are able to make a difference to animals and animal welfare.
