As a response to staff feedback recruitment company Eames Group has improved its provision for staff wellbeing and raised its game when it comes to charity work.

Last year it raised money for the mental health charity Mind and this year staff voted for Macmillan Cancer Support as the company's charity partner. It also launched Wellness Week, which focused on all areas of employees' health and wellbeing. A company employee assistance programme was introduced, too.

Established in 2002 by Matthew Eames, a former Lloyd's underwriter, the company which focuses on the mid to senior section of the market, recruits talent for the insurance, financial services and technology sectors.

From offices in London, Zurich, Singapore and Hong Kong, Eames employs more than 100 people and offers clients a range of services, including contract and short-term appointments. The group includes Eames Partnership, an executive search arm that deals with the global insurance market, and ECMS, a niche consultancy that also serves the insurance market.

Staff can develop their careers through structured progression paths and tailored development plans in an environment that fosters a good work/life balance and having fun. Managers can take part in a monthly book club that focuses on leadership topics. After they have discussed the chosen book, there is a follow-up session to provide peer coaching on any challenges linked to the themes of the book that managers experience.
