Pets at Home, George Richards Way, Broadheath, Altrincham
I am extremely proud to work in Pets at Home Altrincham because passion for people and pets is at the forefront of our mission. I would wholeheartedly say that Altrincham is one of the most welcoming and wholesome stores to both shop and work in. With colleague appreciation and wellbeing a top priority for us. We regularly celebrate and shout about our amazing colleagues both in store and on our company intranet; whether they have been awarded colleague of the month, celebrating passing internal courses, long term service, pets at home anniversaries, incentive winners, new starters etc. A huge part of why I am filled with pride working at Pets at Home Altrincham is down to the feedback we receive from new starters/visitors. We get described as being memorable, having an amazing passion and ‘buzz’ about our store, being welcoming and accommodating.
Having feedback like this from individuals that aren’t working with us gives me great happiness, knowing that we are a team that naturally emits that kind of energy is a huge achievement in itself.
The morale in store is more than always at optimum level, but if for whatever reason it has taken a dip and we need a reason to lift ourselves back up we rally around and make sure it happens. Whether that be a little pick-me-up gift, baking goodies for the team, doing our daily shoals and catch ups outside with the fresh air, putting a colouring book/word searches in the colleague room, celebrating valentines day with little hampers and thank you notes etc!
One thing our shop is well known for is Christmas work day- our team work extremely hard all year round when it comes to incentives and winning team reward vouchers so that we can put them all together and throw an amazing festive day in work. A couple of colleagues go out picking, buying and wrapping all individually thought of gifts for every one in the shop (in their own time), we then all bring in our all time favourite food to share with eachother, play festive music, wear festive jumpers and be thankful for eachother.
Colleagues are everything, without them we are nothing. This team is the most caring, thoughtful and fun loving group of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with and this is honestly the reason why I am so proud to be apart of it.
I am honoured and would like to highlight this to whoever I possibly can!
