    Employee Focussed

    Pros

    BDW are very employee focussed with a strong ethos of healthy and happy employees make for productive employees and it works. They offer a wide range of both physical and mental health benefits/insurances and various schemes to partake in to boost your physical and mental wellbeing. With the cost of living crisis upon us BDW have also taken the opportunity to not only offer a general 5% in pay to all employees, a further increase in benefits to a further 95% of the workforce has just been announced to help cover the cost of living increases. A hybrid approach to working both in the office/site and at home where the job role allows is also very helpful to those employees with families etc to support outside of the working environment.

    Cons

    I have no cons to mention in the relatively short time i have been with the company.
