In the fast-evolving world of next-generation conversational AI applications, one aspect of the business has remained constant for Volume: its culture and people. For the award-winning developer of apps using voice-first devices, creating an environment where talented people can thrive is essential to thrive in a transformational industry.

The company, based in Wokingham, Berkshire, also tailors immersive learning experiences via augmented, mixed and virtual reality technologies. Throughout the past year it has kept its team healthy and motivated by stepping up communication and sharpening an already strong focus on wellbeing.

As well as training mental health first aiders and running workshops for financial wellbeing and positivity, fitness and yoga, Volume has an active community teams channel where people can have fun and unwind together. As a tech-enabled business, the transition to working from home was quickly achieved as everyone already had laptops, screens and headsets.

A survey of staff has shown that just over 90% want to continue remote working at least part of the time and in response, the company is looking for a smaller office to suit a hybrid working model. Employees who demonstrate Volume's values and Look Forward manifesto are nominated each quarter for the V Awards, and the winners are rewarded with a voucher and certificate at the Christmas party.
