Previously based at Vanguard House at Sci-Tech Daresbury, ORCHA has seen huge growth in its employee numbers since its creation back in 2015. Despite the challenges of recent years, its numbers have almost doubled with its recent growth now supporting a headcount of over 100 staff.
As a result, the business announced its relocation to Violet,the newest development to hit Sci-Tech Daresbury’s bustling campus, in August 2022. This move will provide more space for ORCHA’s employees to collaborate and will easily accommodate for their employee-centric flexible working style.
ORCHA has exciting plans to invest much of its resources into providing training and development programmes for its staff. ORCHA partnered with several organisations to deliver a development programme for both the Executive and Senior Leadership teams, and more recently first line managers to support its goal to be an employer of choice.
Encouraging its staff to take time reflect upon their mental health and wellbeing has led to decreased stress levels and improved focus on tasks. Activities to date include a focus on team sports, a summer barbeque and a communal walk on the Sandstone Trail. More events are set to follow. ORCHA is keen to support the health and wellbeing of its staff and organises quarterly events. In the New Year, the company will also hold two further events in Spring and Summer.
A recent employee survey sent to ORCHA’s staff discovered that an impressive 95% of staff feel that the wider team care and support each other, and that 97% of them felt that their managers care about them as individuals.
