About FreshMinds


What is it like to work for FreshMinds

My Manager
My Manager
FreshMinds maintain clear competency models for all roles so what they are asking from people is clear and reasonable. People's achievement against this is recognised through a bi-annual performance review process. They support managers through dedicated and detailed line manager training, time management training and managers can nominate employees for weekly recognition awards. The HR team also supports line managers to recognise and reward staff effectively.

Wellbeing

FreshMinds offer many extra curricular actives within the company such as Bake Club, Running Club, Climbing Club and the FreshMinds netball team to name a few. In the last twelve months they have organised free gym trials and free month long boot camp training trials, as well as arranging a refit of the basement to provide bike storage and showers. They also offer free eye care vouchers and their flexible benefits include private medical and optional dental cover. On birthdays they offer an hour lie-in and the employee receives a card and a cake/cheese/plant or other gift. FreshMinds provides fresh fruit every morning and breakfast every Friday as well as drinks at the end of the day on Friday.

My Team
My Team
FreshMinds conduct Friday morning breakfast meetings every week which bring everyone together in an informal and fun environment. There is a rota so everyone has the chance to speak about a topic they think may be relevant to their company, the work they do or their clients. FreshMinds conduct away days at least twice a year. These away days include presentations around strategy, speakers, group brainstorming sessions and team building activities, such as go-karting and most recently Dragon boat racing. FreshMinds also have half yearly celebrations such as the Summer BBQ and Christmas Party. Once a year, employees are able to attend a subsidised skiing holiday and the company has also arranged cultural nights out on the Southbank and participation in Tough Mudder - military style physical training day. Once a month Freshminds provide a budget for employees to arrange attendance at a cultural event and drinks/socialising afterwards/before.
