We’re still one team with visible leadership and easy communication. There’s always lots going on virtually; something that provides a real sense of working together and achieving together. The working culture is one that people enjoy being part of as shown by all our recent awards, including our listing at #5 in the 2020 ‘Best Places To Work’ rankings on Glassdoor. And when the pandemic has passed and we can go back to more ‘normal’ working conditions and environment, colleagues will again really enjoy getting together to catch up and unwind in the break-out areas and games rooms. There are regular social and charity events too, which show the strength of the team spirit.
