Every new product begins with a need. So, when John Davies's chocolate Labrador, Charlie, had problems with his joints and no available product worked, he and friend John Howie set about creating something better and so its YuMove joint supplement for dogs was born.

The pair set up Lintbells in 2006 and since then the company has expanded into nutritional supplements for cats and horses. Its products formulated to treat joints, digestive systems, teeth, coats and skin, mostly manufactured in the UK, are sold in more than 15 countries. Based near Hitchin, Hertfordshire, Lintbells also has a team in the US.

Employees have worked throughout the pandemic and taking care of their wellbeing has been a priority for Lintbells. The senior leadership team started doing daily 30 minute meetings with the workforce to check-in and ensure everyone had the support they needed. Lintbells also introduced Zoom quizzes, cross team social events and chief executive, John Howie, hosted Desert Island Discs interviewing the team on the eight tracks that mean the most in their lives. The firm also sent out Good News Friday, a newsletter sharing good news and funny stories from the week.

Lintbells runs a comprehensive induction programme to ensure staff have the skills they need and offers internal progression and development. While there wasn't as much formal training as normal employees were encouraged to develop by getting involved in new projects or leading on an internal project for the first time.
