The atmosphere in Searchability’s HQ is always buzzing, and there is a strong social culture which every employee is welcomed into. All staff have access to the office games suite and bar, and are also regularly rewarded through their unique #FirstFriday celebrations, charity days, award ceremonies, and much more.

The recruitment agency has a team of more than 50 hiring across the tech spectrum in the UK, Europe and America. The company was founded by Blythe in 2012 to challenge the traditional approach to recruitment and champion social media as a tool to source and engage job candidates.

Searchability offers "feel sound hours" to staff, a policy that allocates 16 hours a year to each employee to use to help their wellbeing. The time can be taken in one-hour slots and does not require any notice. Staff have used it to leave early, take a few extra hours in bed if they are feeling low or exhausted, or to attend a gym class or relaxation session. No questions are asked and staff can use the allowance however they see fit.

Last year the company also provided a programme of events, mostly virtual, based on a range of wellbeing topics, including puppy therapy, mindset matters, the power of positivity, sleep and circadian rhythms, breathwork, financial wellbeing advice and boxercise. It installed a health station that measured key health statistics, all employees who participated (80%) gained access to personalised health insights and the ability to track health over time.

Quote from the top...
Prioritising employee engagement has been a huge part of our people strategy at Searchability, and I am a firm believer that our commitment to this has been critical to our growth and success over the past ten years. As a recruitment agency our business is driven entirely by our people, and the more our people feel valued, rewarded and included the more we get back in return, so it’s incredibly important that we continue to invest into our employees. We are always looking for ways to enhance the employee experience whether it’s investing into our office environment, adding to our employee benefits offering or activating a dedicated employee wellness programme. The Best Companies engagement surveys have been a brilliant way to stay ahead of this, and listening to the honest and open feedback from every individual from the business has helped us to adapt and ensure what we offer as an employer is keeping our people happy and engaged in their careers.

Martin Blythe, Managing Director - Searchability
