SUPERHEROES DON'T JUST appear on screen at Unruly. Each quarter, this social video marketing firm rewards its own “superhero” employees with £1,000 bonuses.The London-based private firm, founded in 2006, has featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track for its rapid growth. It helps brands such as Volkswagen, Dove and Coca-Cola predict the impact of promotional videos, and get them watched. It has tracked 365bn videos through its viral video chart. Its mantra is “share the love” — and the success — and few people feel taken advantage of by management (an 87% positive score). “We want to create dozens of dollar millionaires, a set of alumni with the cash, kudos and confidence to go out and do it all again,” the firm, which has 12 offices worldwide, explains.“Ultimately, we want someone touched by our success to start the next Facebook/Google/Microsoft, but out of Shoreditch, not Silicon Valley!” Unruly's 78 UK employees say the experience is indeed valuable for the future (88%). There's a mentoring programme that partners people on a skills basis, while dedicated “Unrulies” — as employees call themselves — have networking opportunities such as lunch at 10 Downing Street and invitations to the opening of the market at the London Stock Exchange. The spot “superhero” bonuses worth £1,000 are awarded quarterly to anyone nominated by managers across the business internationally. Everyone has the “latest and greatest tech gadgets”, and training includes a study allowance, days off, inhouse “lunch-and-learn” sessions and a monthly “show-and-tell” event on industry trends. The firm invites City University to run occasional “Unrulyversity” courses and this is excellent for personal growth (89%). Managers share important knowledge and information (85%). Everyone has a 37½-hour week, and there's a relaxed, family-friendly culture that ensures nobody's health suffers because of work (86%): children are welcome in the office, including nursing infants, and there's also the flexibility to accommodate other commitments. Pay is fair compared with similar positions elsewhere (74%) with software developers making almost £54,000 a year, plus bonuses, private healthcare and share options. www.unrulymedia.com

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

100% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Managers at Unruly will arrange for international secondments for employees who wish to develop their skills and see how the company works in other territories. This generates job enrichment, engagement and is a form of reward. Their managers have a management style that is a product of their company culture and as such, talking to people as individuals and demonstrating care for their needs comes naturally, rather than this being a process or requiring a formal intervention.

My Manager

95% of staff agreed

My manager cares about me as an individual

Unruly offer spot ‘superhero' bonuses to team members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. These £1000 bonuses are given each quarter to nominated employees. Managers globally are given the opportunity to nominate Unrulies for a superhero bonus, and these nominations are reviewed by the executive team to ensure senior Unrulies are aware of special contributions team members have made. In addition to monetary rewards, Unruly provide a mentoring programme which partners team members based on skills, this is not about hierarchy, it's about subject matter experts providing support to team members seeking development in this area. If someone has delivered wow in a spectacular fashion they are given a pair of tickets to an exclusive film preview, hosted by the NSPCC in Mayfair. This helps the company to reward Unrulies who have delivered wow and to share the love with the NSPCC. They always try to make sure their most dedicated Unrulies are given lots of high profile networking and speaking opportunities, which have included lunches at #10 Downing Street, appearing on stage at the Barbican theatre, industry leadership dinners and invitations to the opening of the market at the London Stock Exchange.
