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. Our London Headquarters is BREEAM rated as ‘Excellent’ for environmental sustainability and performance, we promote cycling and re-cycling, we target health and welfare, and we walk the walk. We are accredited to Greenmark for environmental sustainability, we bake cakes for Macmillan Cancer Support, and we can all take days off to work with charities. Even Max, our company dog and Maxscott, is a Battersea rescue.

We are outstanding to work for. We’re not just saying that; it’s what our people tell us. In the 2021 b-Heard Best Companies Survey, we’ve achieved 2 stars from a maximum of 3 (our score has increased every year for four years), and been certified as an ‘Outstanding place to work’ in the national employee satisfaction rating survey. Thank you! We listen carefully to our employees, use anonymous surveys which shape improvements to our policies, procedures, and benefits. And we don’t just listen; we act. Which is why our score keeps going up..

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 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 that gets the best out of us all. The most common words you’ll hear at Big are ‘Thank you’.
And when the working day is done, we recognise our successes with regular social events, a Summer celebration that brings us all together in sizzling style, and a Christmas party of legendary status.
