Determined not to let Covid-19 derail the engagement that makes this independent business and technology consultancy thrive, Baringa Partners has worked hard on keeping in touch. Two-way communication has built the business from its launch in 2000 in London into a global operation with 850 employees and 65 partners across energy, products and financial services businesses as well as government and the public sector.

Collaboration is key – both to help clients run their operations, navigate industry shifts and find new markets, and to keep Baringa's workforce focused. Fortnightly survey rounds provide a rolling view of how people are feeling: Baringa knows success relies not on one silver bullet but on getting 1,000 small decisions right.

Changes are made little and often rather than waiting for bigger issues to develop. Staff returning after furlough have said they feel as if they have never been away, thanks to continuing training and one-to-one contact as well as Q&A sessions. Teams have also got together in a more social setting online to eat a takeaway at the same time, or to share one thing they have done that day to boost wellbeing.

To mark 20 years in business, the company had planned to take staff to Norfolk for a weekend of camping in yurts – but instead staged Baringafest, a virtual celebration which featured two in-house bands as well as a guest singer. Rewards sent out over the year include chocolates and wine for a successful bid for work or completion of a project.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

94% of staff agreed

My manager shares important knowledge and information with me

Baringa's female development programme supports women as they climb the career ladder – and helps male leaders understand how to be supportive. All senior managers, directors and partners have Baringa Adviser Training every two months so everyone knows what great looks like and all are committed to doing what it takes.

Wellbeing

65% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

Teams have held virtual walking competitions, counting steps to race from London to Paris. Online yoga and fitness sessions have also kept people on their toes. As well as providing a 24-hour employee assistance programme, Baringa has trained people across all grades as mental health first aiders to spot signs of burnout.

Giving Something Back

90% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Everyone has one volunteering day a year to support the community. Staff helped to research the impact of Covid-19 on youth employment prospects under the Drive Forward programme for young people leaving the care system. They produced a youth opportunity index, identifying sectors with the greatest number of jobs.
