THERE IS A secret weapon at the MadeSimple Group — a NutriBullet. Using vegetables and herbs, the 60 employees create healthy shakes with this blender. One senior manager qualified as a yoga teacher and runs regular classes, while a personal trainer holds weekly fitness sessions and everybody gets a free monthly massage. It is little wonder that staff feel an excellent sense of wellbeing (77% positive, a top-20 score). The London-based business was established in 2002 by chief executive Howard Graham, a chartered accountant who jumped at the chance to create a Swiss client's London office address. Now, MadeSimple runs online services for start-ups and small businesses, with employees around the world, and its mantra is: “A great place to work where we do great work.” www.madesimplegroup.com

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Team ‘Speed Dating' is a regular activity taking place once a quarter.

The company then takes a team of 5 ‘couple's and then each couple are given topics to discuss. Sharing insights about their; favourite places to visit in the world, aspirations, big idea, big dream and one fact that no one would know about them. Friday 4.30 Fun: On Fridays the company officially close the office an hour earlier to have some team fun. It's not about leaving early on a Friday but rather about team building. Each week one department is responsible for ensuring the whole team get together to interact, engage and get to know one another. The fun activity can be anything, as long as it brings teams together. Activities covered show the range of fun: The Egg Challenge, Salt & Pepper, where people have to blindly find their perfect pairing to find their team, Silly ‘It's a Knockout' type office activities, a quiz and softball in the park. The company buys beers / wine / nibbles for these events. Tuesday Team Lunch: Each Tuesday one department is responsible for organising lunch for the whole team.
