Hovis and Benecol spread are the bread and butter of this advertising agency's work, and they are also a free breakfast for its 81 staff. Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy, a top 25 agency which also owns Elvis, the marketing agency ranked 11th this year (see page 12), has a creative approach to work and to employee benefits. Every year, a person who has gone the extra mile wins the rhino award. This is a stuffed toy that sits in the London office reception, with the winner's name around its collar. If that doesn't get people wondering, employees also have a £250 annual curiosity fund, used for activities from screenwriting and scuba diving to learning Cantonese. Every three months, staff members vote for the person who has contributed the most to creativity, and this inventive creature gets an expenses-paid weekend for two to somewhere nice. The agency gets its best relative scores for the good feeling people have about the company (an 86% positive result, the 26th highest rank). Its employees love working for it (85%) and are proud of their jobs (89%). Started in 1999 by four eponymous friends, there's still a strong sense of family (84%). Helen Calcraft, the chief executive, is an inspiring figure (88%) and her staff say she runs the company on sound moral principles (84%). They have faith in her and in the senior management (both 90%). Employees are excited about where the company is going (84%) and feel they can make a valuable contribution to its success (87%). Work includes everything from a “tax doesn't have to be taxing” campaign for HM Revenue & Customs, to advertising campaigns for Waitrose and Debenhams, and staff find this variety stimulating (83%).
