The wellbeing and happiness of staff are key business objectives at digital and IT recruitment specialists, Energize Group.

Based in Manchester with operations in Europe and the US, the company was founded in 2006 by Craig Molloy and Gavin Jones with the objective of building a true values-led organisation with customers and people at its core.

The culture is underpinned by five values which were drawn up in collaboration with staff. They include Think Big; Hard Work, Works; Do the Right Thing; Have Fun & Celebrate Success Together. Together these embody The Energize Way, a key determinant of both promotion and progression and The Energize Way Award is the most coveted of the annual gongs to be bestowed upon staff.

The group, one of the first adopters of Net Promoter Score, which measures customer experience and predicts business growth, forecasts revenues of £16m this year with continued expansion across its brands (SAP, Digital, Tech and Data) and locations.

Fiercely committed to personal and professional development, the company marries ambitions with a tailored bespoke internal development programme and regular input from industry experts.

During the pandemic the group's “We are all in this together” approach galvanised the team whose feedback influenced wide-ranging initiatives to bring the company together including a new flexible working policy and the establishment of a wellbeing group and a social committee.

The senior management team also designated time each week to call employees for a general chat so they knew they had their back.
