Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

100% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Box UK hosts external events and activities on a quarterly basis, paid for by the organisation and to which all employees are invited. In the past 12 months these events have included a company BBQ, end of year party and go-karting. They also hold quarterly internal company ‘mingles' where employees are encouraged to take time away from their desks to get to know each other and celebrate successes. These events are catered for by the organisation and company time is also allocated to facilitate them. These mingles often coincide with internal competitions organised by the Personnel team. Previous competitions have included a photo competition, caption competition and “guess who?” competition, with the results revealed at the mingle so all team members are encouraged to participate and share in the celebration.

My team is fun to work with

The Box UK Handbook, which is home to all process and policy, has a forum in which staff can submit questions about any of the documentation to the Personnel team. These submissions are reviewed and actioned monthly. Additionally, Box UK utilises Trello as an online suggestion box which can also track further comments and feedback from the entire company, ensuring maximum visibility. Most importantly, Box UK runs regular company meetings, focus groups and internal sessions to have face-to-face discussions about current issues, including those raised by employees where relevant.
