Featured Workplace Factors

My Team

97% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

The company's brilliant office space plays a big part in promoting collaboration. Double height ceilings and multiuse furniture solutions make it an extremely flexible place to work. All employees are provided with a MAC laptop on arrival, so everyone has freedom to hot-desk. They offer plenty of desk space, sofas and amazing break-out areas for people to have informal meetings and brainstorm. They also have a dedicated canteen/lunch area in the basement where staff can gather over lunch, or break off to one of the snug areas fitted with sofas and soft lighting for more relaxed chats. Rufus knows the importance of taking time out together. Each team has an allocated budget that they can use for social activities. In addition, the events team Freshly Squeezed puts together a bespoke programme of monthly classes and events to help motivate and inspire. These include everything from shoe design, sushi making and movie nights – this means many opportunities to work together with colleagues in smaller groups. They also run regular clubs, including Wine club and Book club. Their Party Animals team also organise lots of opportunities for teams to bond outside of work. Every month, they run an initiative called “Life Lessons With…” These are a fortnightly team challenge where staff nominate a topic, then get together and present their understanding of the topics to each other. In addition they run monthly ‘Masterclasses' - show-and-tell sessions designed to share with each other the work in their respective areas.

My Company

97% of staff agreed

My work is an important part of my life

Aside from their fixed and regular reward initiatives like the Employee of the Month award, Xtra Mile programme and end of year Red Lion awards, which are voted for by colleagues and directly reward staff performance with tangible benefits of up to £1000, they have worked hard to develop one of the most diverse and comprehensive benefits packages in their industry. Part of their benefits sees the company curate a programme of cultural events called Freshly Squeezed, which aims to cater for the ‘whole person' by offering a wide range of topics. Staff are encouraged to get involved at their leisure and within work hours to develop new skills. This gives staff the opportunity to take a break, with the intention of feeling valued and making Rufus a rewarding place for them to come to work. Rufus have had fantastic feedback from both permanent and freelance staff who say they haven't seen such a wide-ranging and unique initiative at any other agency. Their benefits seek to reward staff with everything from time off to discounts on leisure activities (1 free cinema ticket for Vue and Cineworld each week; 40% off British Airways flights; 25% off Eurostar) to looking after their physical and emotional health and wellbeing. On a daily basis, if people need to work late to hit a deadline, they'll be provided with as much beer, pizza and ice cream as they can manage!
