“It makes me incredibly proud to know that the 2 Star Accreditation was made possible by the honest feedback of Olive’s people. We all know the challenges this year has brought. We had to make some tough, yet responsible decisions based off the trends we were seeing from customers in severely impacted industries. These actions were fully supported by affected individuals, who I’m pleased to say are now operational once again. It’s humbling that they too could support this initiative and believe in the wider vision, post-lockdown. Whilst remote working wasn’t a new concept for us as digitally agile organisation, we did experience a challenge in how best to replicate the office environment and culture virtually and this accreditation is testament to our joint success.” Martin Flick, CEO

Many Olive employees have engaged in local community work by cooking/baking for the NHS and local communities. Employees have also been shopping for their neighbours who were affected by the Covid pandemic. The stories and photos of these good deeds were shared in the virtual staff room and received tremendous applause and praise.

Virtual channels have been quoted as being a 'lifeline' throughout the pandemic and have not only helped to keep all employees connected but have also shown that Olive people can become more engaged. They all came together to support one another as the pandemic affected people in different ways.  This continues to be an effective way to connect people as Olive start returning to the office.
