SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
We’re committed to reducing our environmental impact and increasing our positive influence through our training, our philosophy, and our actions. We’re members of Ecologi, actively compensating our carbon footprint through planet saving projects, and our London Headquarters is BREEAM rated as ‘Excellent’ for environmental performance. We promote cycling and re-cycling, we target positive health and welfare, and we walk the walk towards a brighter future. We are accredited to Green Mark for environmental sustainability, we bake cakes for Macmillan Cancer Support, and we can all take days off to work with charities close to our hearts.

We’re really Very Good
We are Very Good to work for. We’re not just saying that; it’s what our people tell us. In the 2022 b-Heard Best Companies Survey, we’ve been certified as ‘Very Good to work for’ in the national employee satisfaction survey, placing us in the Top 100 of UK Medium Sized companies. Thank you! We listen carefully to our employees, with regular anonymous surveys which shape improvements to our policies, procedures, and benefits. And we don’t just listen; we act. Because our people are the heart of our business.
Right: Team members who got the 'wear stripes today' memo
We provide an enviable array of employee benefits including medical, health, profit share and educational provisions that are available to all, and review these regularly to provide the best we can. Our latest review upped the company pension contribution, added leave days for long servers, increased the provision of maternity/paternity leave for new parents, and allowed our staff to buy more holiday when they want to. We also have great coffee machines and endless biscuits & fruit, and you know how important that is.

The big team & culture
We work hard: To achieve what we achieve, we have to. We work smart, in close-knit teams where we’re relied upon to deliver and to own our performance. And we work together, with each team adding to the bigger picture. Regular team-building and ongoing education mean we’re up to date and razor sharp. We’re open and honest and loyal and we know it, and that gets the best out of us all. The most common words you’ll hear at big group are ‘Thank you’.
Keeping it social. When the working day is done, we celebrate our successes with regular team, company and big group events. Sometimes that means we book a bar out on a Thursday night and get together just for the sake of being together, and there are more dazzling events too. We throw a Summer celebration that unites the whole company in sizzling style, and we host a Christmas party of legendary status where we book an entire venue, turn up the volume, and let down our hair.
