As an organisation ESOS seeks to enhance the wellbeing of its employees in a number of ways. They have an on site gym, squash court, sauna, pool table that can be used at any time and free aerobics/fitness classes at lunch time to encourage a healthy lifestyle. The company also have a fishing lake within the grounds which allows people to walk around or fish in their leisure time or they may choose to relax within the bistro area in the offices. ESOS offer free annual eye tests and have an anonymous Employee Assistance Programme provided by Norwich Union who provide counselling, information services for work, family crises and personal life challenges. Each Friday is a dress down day through a Give As You Earn scheme with all money going to their chosen charity.
The ESOS Charity Summer Family day is the most memorable social event of the past year due to the number of staff and family members that attended. The event is held each year and is arranged by the ESOS charity team with assistance from staff. ESOS hold a BBQ and various events. This year they had a petting zoo, laser clay pigeon shooting, hair braiding, inflatable sumo suits, fire engine and crew, funbus, cake stall, chocolate tombola, band/disco and various bouncy castles.
Having been re-accredited for ISO14001 as an organisation ESOS continue to recognise that they have a responsibility to ensure that the impact of their activities on the environment is kept to a minimum. The company encourage activities that reduce the environmental impact on both their local and wider community including: paper, mobile phone, printer, battery, stamps, aluminium and plastic bottle recycling. All PC hardware is recycled in line with the WEEE directive. ESOS also encourage car sharing where possible. This, they believe, ensures that everyone remains aware and active in the efforts to recycle.

Events in 2012 so far have included, fancy dress days, bikeathon, quiz night, summer family party and various raffles.
