Adam Boddison, chief executive of the Association for Project Management, invites small groups of staff to have coffee with him and chat freely about any topic. They have become lively and interactive sessions.

To live up to the organisation's commitment to being friendly and thoughtful, Boddison and the leadership team at the Buckinghamshire-based charity work hard to make sure staff feel valued and motivated. His end-of-week email recognising individuals and updating employees on his business and personal activities is popular and informative.

Social platforms have been created to facilitate interaction and communication, such as wellbeing coffee mornings and virtual knowledge-sharing events, which give staff the chance to engage informally with their colleagues. Feedback has shown that they value the opportunity to share experiences.

The organisation also listened to staff when they asked that it place more emphasis on wellbeing and improved the consistency in how information was shared. It responded by giving them two extra days off, a wellbeing day and an additional volunteering day. It has also set up other wellbeing measures. A new intranet acts as central information hub.

Established in 1972 with just 78 members, the association is the world's only chartered body for the project profession. It has more than 30,000 members and 500 corporate partners around the globe. Through its work, which includes delivering education, developing qualifications, conducting research and running events, the charity aims to inspire communities to deliver meaningful change by advancing the art, science, theory and practice of project management.
