Here at Cala we are incredibly proud of our culture, it’s the driving force behind our business and it’s encapsulated in our vision - building a place to be proud of. We believe our culture sets us apart as a business.
“Cala’s culture is forward-thinking and people driven. Cala is always looking at how to improve and ensuring to take a ‘People First’ approach to change.” - Kieran Jack, IT Development Team Leader.
Respect is fundamental for us, whether it be employees, business partners, customers or communities and characterises the way we deliver, creating an inclusive work environment in which everyone can contribute their ideas.
Our four values drive our culture. Passion, Delivery, Quality and Respect run through everything we do.
Our culture and values aren’t words on a wall, we are constantly reinforcing how it should feel to be part of the Cala team. They are part of our training and development programmes and our continuous conversations approach to performance development.
It's the attention to detail and commitment each of our employees gives to delivering excellent quality for our customers. We set high standards for our teams, and we make sure they are met.
At Cala, we seek to employ people who are hard working and motivated to deliver the best product and experience for our customers.
Our staff are committed to delivering for our customers, the communities we build within, and for each other, consistently and effectively.
At Cala, we're dedicated to showing respect, whether with our colleagues and subcontractors, or with our customers and the communities we build within.
Looking after ourselves and one another is a core part of our culture. We understand the challenges and importance of creating a healthy work-life balance and therefore want everyone at Cala to feel they can deliver in a way that is most productive for them. Above anything else, we want everyone to work in an environment that cares for their physical and psychological wellbeing.
First and foremost, this is about our approach, how it feels to be part of our team, and the ways we support our people to find the right balance.
Our leaders are supported and empowered to embed positive wellbeing practice across the business. We develop and share resources with our leaders to equip them with knowledge, and promote shared experiences and open conversations to role.
We want our teams to feel trusted to deliver for the company in a way that feels best suited to the needs of their role and is balanced with their lives. This means reviewing how we work and improving our delivery through a more outcome-based approach. As part of this, we run regular employee surveys to monitor opinions on Cala as an employer and the work we are doing for our people, which helps shape our local action plans.
