Some years ago, Lyndsay, our Performance Manager, worked for the Body Shop in their factory in Littlehampton.
One thing she loved about it was the LOVE scheme:
Learning is Of Value to Everyone.
Inspired by this, we stole it and now every employee gets £100 a year to learn something completely new. It can be anything as long as it’s not job related and you haven’t done it before.
Things employees have used it for include Improv Training, Cartooning and Dressmaking.
Surfing, sculpting, sofa stuffing. You name it, you can LOVE it.
