Women At Rexel
"To me working here doesn't feel like a job; you get to meet amazing people, have a lot of fun and at the same help others (customers) out solving problems... It's a company that fosters respect for each other and is good to its workers."
"It's the people at Ideal that really make it. The work environment encourages individual expression, and there are some real characters, both within the company, and within our customer base."
"I love coming to work... Each day has a challenge that I have to rise too. I enjoy working alongside our customers sharing the high and lows as each job is completed."
In many workplaces where the concept of "knowledge is power" Ideal has a very refreshing approach where ideas are shared & welcomed. Staff aren't afraid of asking questions with fear of being shot down.
