People are our greatest asset. We value our staff and their development is the measure of our success.

As a consultancy business, we know that our people are critical to our success. Our people are some of the most innovative, experienced specialists in the industry. As we strive to build a sustainable, successful, Banyards future for us all; we work hard to employ the best  people, to motivate them to do great work for our clients, to be mindful of their wellbeing, to reward them for their fantastic contribution and to create a culture and working environment in which they want to stay.

Banyards’ compensation and benefits packages are designed to reward our people for the great work they do – we want to be attractive and competitive as an employer, so that our star performers want to stay working with us, and so that we can attract new talent to sustain and grow our success.

We actively support our people and encourage them to build great working relationships with their team members and recognise the amazing work they do. We all know how important it is for our own motivation and morale to know that our hard  work is recognised by our colleagues and managers and this is part of our Banyards culture – acknowledged at team meetings, praise at performance reviews and one-to-ones, informal celebrations throughout the year which create a culture of appreciation and sense of value.

We also encourage and reward personal development and career progression. Building your capability and developing your career benefits both you and Banyards so we see this as a win-win.
