Franklin Fitch is fully tuned in to its employees' needs. During the pandemic, this recruiter for the IT infrastructure industry launched its own radio show, ‘FitchFM,' complete with news, quizzes and music to keep spirits high. Directors David Annable and Steven Ewer even held a no topic off limits interview to let people really get to know them.

Established in 2011 and boasting offices in London, Cardiff, Frankfurt and Austin Texas, this company went the extra mile keeping staff engaged last year. At home challenges offered prize vouchers for takeaway meals, while a virtual Run Club and pub quizzes kept everyone moving and laughing.

Franklin Fitch's directors and operations managers even offered to personally deliver groceries and medicine to isolating team members. Everybody can work two days a week from home and a 24/7 free and anonymous Employee Assistance Programme is on hand to help those struggling.

The firm embraces an Open Borders Policy, letting workers transfer temporarily or permanently to one of its international offices. A generous commission scheme tops up earnings and high achievers get treated to a special lunch each quarter.

Its Annual Super Inventive Trips are tantalising motivators that reward exceptional performance. Previous trips have included Las Vegas, Miami and skiing in Austria. Annual activity trips reward the whole company with a bit of fun, like surfing San Sebastian or dancing away at Bestival music festival.
