Working with BSG

We are very successful in retaining our employees; we have a low staff turnover and a reputation for being a ?good? company to work for. But don?t just take our word for it; these are some of the comments made about BSG during our Investors in People assessment.

"BSG is very flexible - you're valued for what you produce not what time you arrive"
"There's no waiting for dead man's shoes at BSG, as when a staff member demonstrates the qualities required, they are promoted, regardless of length of service."
"They're supportive of part-time workers."
"Anyone can take a lead at any part of a project that is their specialist area."
"Report feedback is given and there's guidance and discussion time - not just marked in red ink"
"It's a helping culture at BSG."
"Our staff treatment, retention and loyalty are very positive and always have been."

BSG has comprehensive employment policies and we strive to achieve a supportive environment which allows all members of the team to pursue productive and exciting careers. Our commitment to being an employer means:
