Staff are given the flexibility to build work around their lives, rather than the other way around, at The Organic Agency. The “digital agency for a human world”, with headquarters in Exeter, helps brands use technology to better connect with their audiences. Its team of experts share the goal of creating positive digital experiences to improve customers' lives. Team members have been able to move their hours around to cope with the added pressures of life under lockdown.

During the pandemic, the marketing agency has increased the regularity of team meetings and social events so people can have a giggle together while making bread, pizzas and pancakes. Fancy dress, pets at work, scavenger hunts and quizzes have also livened up the working day, especially on Fridays when business was based around business updates and social activities.

For the past year, the emphasis has been on employee recognition on Mondays, while on Wednesdays the focus has been on wellbeing. Team members have been given a wellbeing allowance to spend on themselves and have been able to join walking and running challenges, yoga sessions, press-up competitions and weekly meditation and fitness classes.

The Organic Agency has tried to get creative when it comes to rewarding its staff. Bonus schemes were already in place so exceptional performance has been recognised with special events such as a cookery masterclass at home or the delivery of restaurant meals and Champagne – plus silly gifts to raise a smile.
