Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

96% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

Everyone across the agency impacts on the success of their business, whether cost-savings, improving cash flow or creating award-winning work, so each month individuals can nominate themselves for the Impact of the Month Award. The board short-lists the best nominations, they then present their work to the rest of the company at the first Monday morning meeting of the month. Each member of staff is given a voting sheet with a list of the nominations so that they are all able to vote on a winner of each category. At the following Monday morning meeting the winners of each category are announced, and presented with retail vouchers from one of the Co-Founders. This contributes to the Star of the Month. Each month the Board vote for the Star of the Month. Star of the Month recognises employees from across the agency who have gone “above and beyond “to achieve success at work. At the end of the year, each month's winner's name is placed into the Star of the Year draw to win a chance to work in the international office of an Oriella PR network partner for two weeks. Previous winners have chosen Australia, India and San Francisco.

Personal Growth

94% of staff agreed

The experience I gain from this job is valuable for my future

Brands2Life encourages an open, honest and collaborative agency culture. None of the directors, including the co-founders, have offices. The office is one open plan space which means an open door policy is in place at all times, enabling staff to feel they can approach and collaborate with the co-founders at any time. The co-founders believe that they should lead by example and from the front. They take weekly company meetings, still work on client accounts, participate in company events and always take a vested interest in everyone's careers no matter what level. They hold quarterly review meeting sessions with the Board to enable them to be kept informed about the performance of all staff. In addition to this they also run training sessions and company introductions for all new starters. Both co-founders take the Q&A session with all levels twice a year because they want to hear first-hand from people how they feel about the company. If everyone has had a tough busy month it is not unheard of for them to arrange surprise lunches to thank everyone for their hard work.
