RSSL FDF AwardsEmployee engagement, community spirit and a passion for science help Reading Scientific Services Ltd (RSSL) gain Good Employer nomination.

RSSL secured a coveted place on the shortlist of Good Employers at this year’s Food & Drink Federation Awards. With staff members ranging in age from 17 to 78, the scientific consultancy demonstrated its commitment to providing a positive, inclusive and inspiring working environment.   

Commenting on the nomination, Jacinta George, managing director for RSSL said: “We are delighted that RSSL has been recognised as a great place to work.  Our aim has always been to create opportunities for all.  To encourage every employee to pursue the career and life objectives that are important to them as individuals. 

“We have a wonderful team of people at RSSL, who are dedicated to supporting customers. By investing in their emotional wellbeing and providing a work experience which is intellectually fulfilling, we aim to ensure that RSSL continues to play a key role in the success of the food industry – both now and in the future.”

Initiatives such as a Dragon’s Den style challenge for University students, a bespoke apprenticeship scheme and an in-house Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) hub are all part of a wider programme designed to create a stimulating workplace.  Involvement with the community and charities is equally important to the strategy. This activity not only helps to boost camaraderie among the staff, but also raises significant funds for important causes – 2016 achieved a record 46% staff participation and a total of over £60,000.

Sharing knowledge internally is actively encouraged, so too is participation in industry debates, issues and forums. This culture of personal growth supports RSSL’s belief in life-long learning and equipping employees with the knowledge, skills and attitude to shine in their chosen field.
