Our People

Hathaway's believe our employees are our greatest asset.

We are committed to developing and supporting our staff and providing an excellent working environment. We have a proactive approach to training our staff.

investor in peopleWe achieved accreditation to Investors in People in December 2001 and have undergone successful reviews in 2004 under the profile review and in 2007, 2010 and 2013, under the revised Investors in People standard.

A recent assessor's report stated: "We use coaching from experienced people a lot in our team" and "one of the best things that coaching has taught us is that the guys on the front line have the best ideas".

We have committed and loyal employees who enjoy working within Hathaway's and offer valuable experience and knowledge within our sector.

We have a growing number of employees who have joined our Club 25 (25 years service). We believe in continuous improvement and innovation and have a dedicated focus group to review and improve our processes.

Community Support

Our employees are committed to help us support our local Community. Over 15,000 has been raised for the North of England Children's Cancer Research Fund by a dedicated group of our employees participating in various sponsored bike rides.

Our employees have donated over 34,000 to Dr Barnardo's since 1991 and a large proportion continues to donate via our payroll today.

butterwick hospice careHathaway's adopted our local Butterwick Hospice in Bishop Auckland as our company charity. In recognition of our support over the last 10 years and in particular, our help in funding the development of their day room last summer, we received a Butterwick Hospice Corporate Partner award. We continue to support the Butterwick Hospice and are proud of our association to this worthy charity.

We support school work experience placements via our membership of Durham Education Business Partnership.
