Rickard Luckin flipped one of its usual fundraising activities on its head during lockdown and launched a regular “dress-up day”, rather than staff paying to dress down.

The Rickard Luckin Essex Community Fund works with Essex Community Foundation, which since 1996 has raised a total of £34m for charities in the county. Money raised by the dress-up days went to a local food bank.

Rickard Luckin has offices in Basildon, Chelmsford and Southend-on-Sea with more than 150 staff providing services for businesses and private clients. It has close links with professionals in 300 locations around the globe through its membership of the MGI Worldwide network of audit, tax and accounting firms.

Investment in video conferencing technology kept staff and leaders connected during the pandemic, sometimes in ways even better than the real world.

The Remo platform allowed the whole team to gather for a business update, then split into tables of six for brainstorming sessions. Discussion groups on Lifesize highlighted Covid concerns and generated tips on subjects such as home-schooling.

Remo was good for having fun, too. It was used for a virtual afternoon tea, with cakes, cream and jam delivered to staff at home, and the Christmas party, which became a firm-wide event rather than the three offices celebrating separately.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

84% of staff agreed

I feel proud to work for this organisation

More than two-thirds of staff were involved in discussion groups for the Firm of the Future change management programme. Having helped to identify the issues, staff were also involved in the fixes, which include an agile working policy, a team suggestions scheme and new open-plan offices in Southend.

Wellbeing

70% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

During Mental Health Awareness week Rickard Luckin hosted a webinar, titled Let's Talk About Good Mental Health, and a chair yoga and breathwork class, which employees' families joined in with. Nine staff have become Wellbeing Champions and a virtual cafe has been set up to encourage coffee breaks and chat.

Fair Deal

61% of staff agreed

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

Rickard Luckin rewards and thanks staff with prepaid Mastercards, which offer more freedom to spend than vouchers. As well as the usual £50 gift at Christmas, every employee was sent a £50 card to buy something wellbeing-related to celebrate the launch of the firm's wellbeing programme.
