At BIgChange nothing is small scale, including its ambition — to be a unicorn startup by 2025 and reach a value of $1bn. Staff and leaders at the software company, which sells a business management platform, think big, too, thanks to the organisation's values.

One such value is 'Big on Energy' and, in January, its 'BigOnEnergy' initiative aimed to get staff moving. The senior team led workshops such as high-intensity interval training, indoor cycling, a ladies' bootcamp, and dog-walking challenges. Money raised is donated to a health charity.

BigChange, which is based in Leeds, launched in 2013 with three people and a mission to liberate businesses, freeing them to do what they do best. Thanks to pioneering cloud-based mobile technology, it is achieving its aim with simple and intuitive software.

It's used by organisations of all sizes, helping them to eliminate paperwork, automate manual processes and boost customer service. BigChange has an enviable net promoter score of 70+, putting it in a world-class category.

Staff are encouraged to have their say in all aspects of the company through the BigVoice committee. It is an open forum made up of a representative from each team and meets fortnightly to discuss staff feelings, give feedback and come up with initiatives to solve issues. There are also discussions about product improvement, inclusivity and salaries; employees discuss what is important to them.
