They also normally take part in "coffee with a colleague" taking a team member out for dinner or a coffee, someone they wouldn't usually get to spend time with. Staff are encouraged to suggest ideas on new ways of working or new concepts for the future.

During the pandemic Hames made sure he was in touch with staff by telephone and Zoom at the peak of lockdown to ensure everyone was happy, safe and secure at home with his chauffeur company delivering equipment and chairs where needed. Mental health first aiders have been checking in on staff. Management led calls were also held every week with the whole team to keep them up to speed and feeling part of the team and social events including quizzes boosted morale.
