Employee Feedback

Rather than second guess what our employees think about working here, we ask them. Feedback is actively sought in a number of ways, such as in one-to-one meetings, and every six months we run an anonymous employee survey.

Our latest survey was run in April 2019, and here are some of the key findings:

100% of our people rated their job satisfaction as good or excellent.

Company ambition and vision, team spirit and colleague support and culture & office atmosphere were ranked highest by our employees.

When asked what they liked about working here, the most commonly used phrases were: autonomy, support, culture, the people, the vision.

Suggestions and ideas from team members in previous surveys have been evaluated and where possible implemented.
