UGR - Unwritten Ground Rules

Here at the Workwear Group, we believe having a positive workplace culture is critical to the success of our business. And that is why we initiated the awards program known as the UGR AWARDS.

What are UGRs
Unwritten Ground Rules or ‘UGRs’ are people’s perceptions of, "This is the way we do things around here." UGRs drive people's behaviour, but they are rarely, if ever, talked about openly. Most leaders know about the importance of culture, but very few understand corporate culture in simple and practical terms. The concept of UGRs changes that. To improve organisational culture and bottom-line performance, we need to improve the UGRs and aim to create a more positive perception of “how we do things around here at Workwear Group”.

How is this applied at Workwear Group?
In 2016, with the guidance of the UGRs creator Steve Simpson, every team member across the organisation had an opportunity to provide feedback on the areas of culture we wanted to become famous for. This led to the development of what we now know within Workwear Group as our five core values:

  • Accountability
  • Boldness
  • Customer First
  • Openness
  • Integrity

Each quarter, Workwear Group acknowledges and celebrates those teams or individuals who best demonstrate positive UGRs by living and breathing our five core values – Accountability, Boldness, Customer First, Openness, Integrity and every Christmas, a team or individual is chosen as the annual award winner.

Following a nomination process by a line manager or peer, the winners of our UGRs are selected by a very important group inside our business, the Culture Champs.
