Touched and inspired by a TV documentary about the hunt for a Covid-19 vaccine, Search Laboratory offered to help Oxford University's research team cut through the noise surrounding the pandemic.

Search Laboratory is one of the UK's largest independent digital marketing agencies, offering paid search, SEO, display, social media, digital strategy and international services.

The agency applied this expertise to the university's digital marketing and conducted a pro bono SEO health audit, which identified ways to improve the online visibility of the vaccine research and keep the public abreast of the efforts to beat the coronavirus.

Covid-19 encouraged innovation within the company, which has offices in Leeds, London and New York. A live Q&A polling app was introduced in company updates and meetings. This allowed staff to ask the chief executive and leadership team what were sometimes difficult questions in real time.

The directors had one-to-one conversations with all staff early in the pandemic, and volunteered to take a 17.5% pay cut during 2020 while other salaries were kept at 100%, including employees who were furloughed.

After consultations with the team, Search Laboratory refreshed its company values. The four chosen were innovation, transparency, respectfulness and accountability. These reflect its aim to ensure all staff voices are heard and presented in how the agency thinks and acts.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Team

90% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

A kick-off event is usually held at the Everyman cinema to set out the agency's vision for the year. This moved online because of Covid, but the directors made sure staff had fun despite the tough year. The executive chairman filmed a sketch dressed as Boris Johnson.

Fair Deal

65% of staff agreed

I feel I receive fair pay for the responsibilities I have in my job

Long service is rewarded after just three years, then at regular intervals, with gifts up to the value of £700. There is also a quarterly innovation award, with prizes for staff who have done things to improve the business, such as identifying new tools or processes and spotting new markets.

Giving Something Back

95% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Search Laboratory is striving to become carbon neutral in 2023. New recruits are told about the agency's environmental aspirations, and each has a tree planted in their honour. Last Christmas, the agency planted trees in lieu of festive gifts for its clients.

Benefits

Pensions

Companies offering a final salary scheme to all employees, or one in which the employer's contribution is at least 5%.

Private Healthcare

Companies offering private health insurance to all employees.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
