The positive aspects of office life have been somewhat forgotten over the past year, for obvious reasons, replaced by visions of hand sanitiser, 'Keep Your Distance' signs and rows of empty desks. It was a change of location, though, that helped transform Newable's work culture.

This large company helps SMEs to thrive by providing essential resources they need to take the next step with their business: funding, advice and space. Its own space turned out to be less than ideal before the big move in 2017.

After staff surveys showed the facilities were not up to standard, Newable chose a 10,000 sq ft space at Barbican in the City of London with the objective of creating a modern, agile, activity-based and collaborative workplace. A year later it won the impact on organisational performance award from the British Institute of Facilities Management.

In post-move surveys, staff celebrated the breaking-down of silos, greater synergy among teams and better collaboration, which created a vibrant working environment that attracts new recruits. The firm aims to grow threefold in five years.

Newable's core values are Dream Big, Get Going, Grow Together, Always Improve and Pass It On. Staff are encouraged to give back to the community through volunteering. They also receive a benefits package that includes up to 30 days' holiday, a pension, sick pay, a free mortgage service, payroll giving and an annual flu jab.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

66% of staff agreed

The leader of this organisation runs this organisation based on sound moral principles

CEO Chris Manson is committed to being visible and open. He engaged with employees during the pandemic through live online Q&A events during which he shared ideas, provided updates on the state of the business and motivated people by conveying a positive message.

My Team

79% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Newable used social media platforms and digital communication tools such as Microsoft Teams to keep people connected when the pandemic arrived last year. Thirsty Thursdays enabled remote socialising; musical bingo evenings raised spirits; and people got to meet colleagues via Hopin sessions.

Giving Something Back

67% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

The company supported a local business that was struggling due to the pandemic by placing a bulk order for its fair-trade chocolates, which were distributed to all employees. It partnered with the mentoring charity Urban Synergy, which helps hundreds of young people who come from disadvantaged and/or BAME backgrounds.
