Star employees at Cook Investment Group can be found sipping pina coladas in the Caribbean as a thank you for their hard work. The Milton Keynes-based medical recruitment agency goes above and beyond to reward performance that exceeds expectation. Staff who are promoted to its ‘Elite Club' are sent for a week-long, all expenses paid trip each year.

This family business, launched in 2009, includes three divisions and serves more than 200 UK hospitals. Owners David Cook, his brother Glen, and wife Jenny have seen record sales, profits and growth since the start of the pandemic as demand for frontline healthcare workers rocketed.

Having fun together is high on its priority list. An onsite games room gives a welcome opportunity to relax and everyone is encouraged to get involved with Oktoberfest, Pancake Day, Halloween dress-up and paintball celebrations.

Team members can round off the week at the office's inhouse pub or with a free drink delivered by cart around the office. Naturally, its workforce appreciates the effort and the company has one of the highest retention rates in the sector.

Values of support, care and opportunity are kept at this family-run company's heart. Leadership encourages free thinking from even the most junior employees, with management operating a strict open-door policy. Members of each department can have their say by joining the Group's Workplace Committee.
