THE MONEY WORLD is normally more concerned with bears and bulls than apes, but the Nucleus Financial Group of Edinburgh celebrated its fifth anniversary with a "gorilla-gram" singing Happy Birthday. Its 58 employees feel they can make a difference within the company (87%) and find David Ferguson, the founder and chief executive, inspiring (91%). www.nucleusfinancial.com

Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

62% of staff agreed

I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

Every year Nucleus sponsor a nominated charity, chosen by the staff. Throughout the year they do various different fund raising events in order to raise awareness for the charity. By doing so, this also reaches out to their wider community, and helps them raise large amounts for causes close to their staff. This year they have had three key fund raising events, as well as regular smaller activities throughout the year. In June a large group of staff entered a Dragon Boat race at Ocean Terminal in Edinburgh, and raced against lots of different local companies. Their group successfully raised the most money for charity, despite the fact they lost out on the races themselves! At the end of August, four members of staff risked their lives doing a skydive to raise money for the charity! They overcame their fears, and raised a huge amount in the process. September saw a group of four staff, including David, their CEO, compete in the Great Scottish Run. A couple of people hobbled away from it, but they successfully raised thousands of pounds for their worthy charity partner!
