Team Wellbeing

An illustration of mindfulness

As an employer, we recognise our responsibility to support our staff. Our ethos is for work to be enjoyable but that life, health and happiness are more important.

We put a great deal of time and resource into training and coaching to ensure our skills are at the forefront of tech development, and our staff are happy and supported. All the team have a weekly 1:1 mentoring session which ensures everyone is supported in their progress and development within their role, as well as the more holistic approach intended through coaching.

We care about our craft, each other and the world. We want to change things for the better, and strive to put people and our ethical beliefs at the heart of everything we do. This series shares how we keep striving to do so:

Staying hungry

We allow the freedom to create, in some cases that is space to grow their wider interests (our team is made up of musicians, a yoga teacher, a weight-lifter, a photography and mobile coffee shop owner!) and in other cases, its trust to develop new practices for the team to follow. Whatever it is, it's important our team members know they are supported in their ventures.
