Good Health & Wellbeing
We don’t sacrifice work life balance in the pursuit of performance, which is why having a healthy, happy team is key to a successful, sustainable business. CCS Media has a very strong family orientation and our employees are encouraged to spend quality time with family, whilst maintaining a high standard of work ethics.
Christmas is a time to spend with loved ones – with this in mind, we close our business between Christmas and New Year to ensure our staff are able to have some downtime, recharge their batteries, be at home and come back to work refreshed and ready to take on new challenges.
Our company promotes mental and physical health and welfare. We provide a confidential free 24- hour helpline service to all our employees should they need any support or guidance for issues.
We have Health and Safety and Employee Handbook policies in place to support our employees & keep them safe.
Open door Approach
Our Management team have an ‘open door’ policy & we encourage our employees to actively participate in idea sharing, with the intent of continuously improving ourselves and our processes.
Our business is built on trust. Our Agile program is testament to the confidence we have in our workforce to get the job done, whether they are working at home, in the office or anywhere else. We consistently maintain high ethical and integrity standards, enabling our staff to meet their business objectives.
Our Agile Program
At CCS Media, we embrace the constant evolution of business technology to support our people and our customers. We demonstrated this in 2019 by launching our Agile Program. We invested millions in new technology, enabling our people to work anywhere, whilst remaining connected to each other and to our customers, through the remote access to our business applications and processes, supported by our resilient back office functionalities.
The introduction of mobile devices allows for a robust environment, whilst providing our staff with a well-rounded work/life balance.

We have created our own internal CCS Campus which is a central, customer centric, Sales and Knowledge Enablement tool providing latest product and brand feeds, vendor and internal awareness training and solution qualification data to augment our customers’ experience.
Our Charities and Our Community
We never lose sight that work should be fun and rewarding. We therefore encourage our employees to participate in any community events that dovetail our company ethos. Our family-orientated outlook provokes goodwill and a dedication in everything we do.
Employees are encouraged to organise events within the workplace to raise money for local charities, organisations and initiatives. We support charities such as the ‘JCI Secret Santa Appeal’, ‘Peak FM’s ‘Give a Child a Smile Campaign’, ‘Red Nose Day’ and many others, raising thousands of pounds each year.
We are privileged to have Bradford Community Champions in our business, who help support young people through the Bradford District Council program. We participate in events such as ‘Young Enterprise’ and we offer work shadowing.
We hold an annual ‘Summer Ball’ to show our appreciation to our employees for all their hard work during the year.
