Staff at ethical recruiter Ethero had to guess the identity of a colleague by looking at baby photographs. The quiz was just one of the fun events that take place on Wellbeing Wednesdays. Other activities include poetry writing, bake-offs and word searches. There are prizes for the winners.

The company was founded in 2009 by Gareth Hughes, a recruitment expert and entrepreneur, with the aim of driving ethical improvements in the temporary labour market. Since it began, the company has grown from one to five branches in the Midlands. It has twice been recognised by industry news magazine Recruiter in its Fast 50 list, reaching number six.

Ethero deals mainly with industrial recruitment, but it is also expanding into the commercial sector. Over the years, it has placed thousands of candidates in temporary and permanent jobs.

The company employs a team of professionals who live and breathe the Ethero values: "ethical"; "tenacious"; "helpful"; "entrepreneurial"; "responsible"; and "organised". Every day is different for staff in the fast-paced and fun work environment.

Employees have access to tools and technologies that enable them to excel in their jobs. Teamwork is critical to the success of the business, so regular company events and activities take place within a culture that is centred on employee happiness and wellbeing.

Benefits are competitive and are reviewed annually, considering the changing needs of the modern workplace. Everyone in the team is offered a career path that provides incentives and rewards staff for doing a great job.
