Our people are committed to the business and want to be part of its future success

Portakabin has a common vision: “To deliver peace of mind for our customers across Europe through quality products and services.”

Our colleagues are at the heart of our business and are central to delivering this vision.  To emphasise this we have developed a set of clear values which guide the way we behave towards our colleagues, customers, suppliers and communities.

Caring, family ethos
We employ more than 1,600 colleagues in the UK and continental Europe. Our caring, family ethos is reflected in the large number of long-serving colleagues working across the company, with over 10% having more than 25 years’ service. It’s clear that colleagues enjoy working here, and we have a low employee turnover.

Career development
Our established learning and development approach demonstrates our commitment to invest in all of our colleagues right across the company.  We have an extensive Learning & Development Matrix covering skills based programmes, first line management skills, Management Development and Executive/Strategic Development. All of which build our colleagues’ skills, confidence and career prospects

Rewards and benefits
We reward our colleagues for their hard work and dedication through a competitive salary and a flexible benefits package, which allows them to choose from a range of benefits such as extra holidays, healthcare services, Cycle to Work grants and discounted products, services and membership schemes.

Listening to our colleagues
To ensure we maintain a well-led, well-managed, engaged and enthusiastic workforce, we carry out regular employee surveys. In 2012, we were delighted that 92% of our colleagues said they were committed to the business and wanted to be part of its future success, and 86% were proud to work here and enjoyed working here.

The surveys also enable us to identify areas for improvement, ensuring we maintain our reputation as a great company to work for.
