THE FORECAST IS clear for CloudSense, a cloud computing company. Its 54 employees feel they make a valuable contribution to the London company's success, scoring 95% positive, in third place among small firms. CloudSense provides software and management services for storing data in virtual space, rather than on hardware. Its strong sense of teamwork is reflected in a positive score of 88% for survey questions on My Team. Staff at CloudSense care for each other (91%) and go out of their way to help (89%), whether at their desks or pitching in for a day's charity work. Colleagues competed to submit the best social enterprise idea last year and the winner flew to the world's largest cloud computing conference in San Francisco. Staff say they are not sitting on skills that the firm ignores (67%). The firm is paying for a high proportion of staff – 44 out of 54 – to achieve work-related qualifications. Job experience here is valuable for the future (90%). The firm has more than doubled from just 21 employees last year and there is an incentive to stay, with a bonus of 10% if the company meets its targets. Everyone is given a laptop and mobile phone.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

100% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Whilst the team building events always contain a social element and are memorable due to their uniqueness, the most memorable event is the “Monthly Muster”. This is a free form social held at the end of the day on the fourth Thursday of every month in the London office. CloudSense provide simple food and some drinks, but the organisation and content of the get together is run entirely by the employees in a democratic manner. They use the internal collaboration social tools to discuss and promote the "Monthly Muster". The majority of employees work remotely or on customers' premises so this is very much a monthly social, and what makes it so memorable and enjoyable is the enthusiasm people have for it and the bonding it creates beyond normal work.

Personal Growth

98% of staff agreed

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

For CloudSense listening to employees and seeking their ideas and feedback is at the core of engaging with them. The introduction of their social collaboration tool “Chatter” has created a mind shift at CloudSense. All of the senior management team are on Chatter and can post messages, files, videos, etc instantly to the whole company. Any employee can also direct post a message directed to each other, including the senior management team. That message is public so anyone within the company can view the response. They have found that this has created a real time conversation that has driven engagement as it has driven instant public conversations from the management team that everyone can see and respond to. The company no longer use email as their communication tool internally as Chatter has opened up the internal conversation through becoming a social enterprise.

Leadership

96% of staff agreed

I have a great deal of faith in the person leading this organisation
