Cyber-Duck is a leading digital transformation agency that works with global brands such as the Bank of England, Cancer Research UK and Compare the Market. It operates as an integrated extension of the client's team, whether that's in-person or remotely – and transforms websites, apps and strategies for customers ranging from start-ups to public-sector organisations to blue-chip corporate giants.

Headquartered in Elstree, Hertfordshire and with a London office – and operating on a global platform – the small company affords its employees, known as Ducks, unlimited breadth and scale to meet client needs, however challenging. It makes its debut as a Best Company this year.

Cyber-Duck principles include protecting our people and acting with selflessness and accountability. In this spirit it proactively responded to the pandemic with its unique remote-first operating model. Most staff continued working throughout – although some people were furloughed. These employees were reintroduced as soon as the company was able to do so.

Ducks have contributed to BBC Watchdog and The Gadget Show, and spoken at events such SXSWi – the annual conglomeration of parallel film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences. They have worked with UKTI (UK Trade and Investment, superseded by the Department for International Trade); and with UX London, the in fact Brighton-based strategic design and innovation consultancy.

Recognition for Cyber-Duck includes being on the Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 (EMEA) list; and there have been awards from Webby, which honours excellence on the internet; UXUK, which assesses the user experience; and from DADI, the Drum Awards for the Digital Industries.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

85% of staff agreed

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

Three core principles underpin the Cyber-Duck philosophy: process, with senior leaders training staff in ISO-accredited methodology to uphold standards and yield the best results; performance, which includes cutting-edge innovation; and people – with the agency growing its leaders by way of offering training from within.

My Company

96% of staff agreed

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

An It's OK policy encouraged staff to take the time they needed to come to terms with Covid-19 changes. Even though timesheets are the foundation of company profitability, people were able to step away from their desks, juggle childcare and home schooling, or turn cameras on/off for meetings.

My Team

87% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Birthdays, work anniversaries, trips down memory lane are all celebrated and a people discuss what they're watching, reading and listening to in a media corner. There's more space for the team to chat during quizzes and the weekly Duck and Crisp virtual pub.
