Veramed created a Christmas gift list to thank its employees for their exceptional efforts in 2020.

Devised by the contract research organisation's CEO Matt Jones, it allowed staff to recreate the childhood experience of creating a list for Father Christmas by choosing up to £250 of gifts, from Bose headphones to children's trampolines and designer handbags.

The company's employees were also treated to a pantomime performed by professional actors and were paid generous annual bonuses.

Formed in 2012, Veramed provides biostatistics and programming services to the pharmaceutical and biotech industry.

Employee wellbeing is at the heart of everything Veramed does.  A rigorous resource forecasting process protects work-life balance, while the flat structure of the business and the opportunity to be heard regardless of role or level creates a unique culture that makes Veramed a truly rewarding place to work.

The employee assistance programme, which was introduced during the pandemic and is provided through Health Assured, provides a free counselling, legal and information service to employees and their families, 24/7.

Veramed's B Corp accreditation is a demonstration of its dedication to being a force for good and to the environment, community and most importantly to their employees.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

100% of staff agreed

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

Recent staff socials have ranged from a Ukrainian cookery class to scavenger hunts, with some wine and chocolate tasting thrown in. The events were run remotely using funds ring-fenced early in the pandemic.  Exercise hasn't been forgotten and a professional yoga instructor and personal trainer run classes online at lunchtime.

My Team

97% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Daily stand-up virtual meetings allow teams to discuss the day ahead while enjoying their morning coffee.  These 15-20 minute calls also provide the opportunity to start the day with a human connection and the chance to ask colleagues for advice on work issues.

Giving Something Back

97% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

An environmentally preferred purchasing policy encourages employees to be mindful of the way in which they manage their travel, purchase office equipment and stationery and manage their home office. Company offices have been equipped with energy trackers, all waste is recycled and use of recycled and non-toxic products is encouraged.
