About Inferno Limited


What is it like to work for Inferno Limited

My Team
My Team
Every last Friday of the month Inferno holds a social event called ‘Love What Could Be’, which gives the chance to gather the entire agency, build morale and inspire collaborative working. These varied events are organised by their ‘Love What Could Be’ committee and some are seasonal, some are festive and some are completely random. Alcohol and nibbles are always a prerequisite. In the past year, an example of these are: a summer picnic and games, a pumpkin carving competition, a cocktail making class and a “guess the baby” tea party. Though not quite a team building ‘event’, a “buddy system” is introduced on an employee’s first days where new staff are partnered with someone on their department who is not their line manager, who will introduce them to their new home and colleagues, beyond the initial HR tour. Inferno will also pay for the buddy to host a team lunch outside the agency. Departments also have regular ‘away days’ to discuss new practices and strategy, this is held at a nice and inspiring venue (such as an art gallery meeting room) and include breakfast/lunch and down-time drinks when the day is through.

Inferno have a traditional ‘royal mail’ post box which sits in the lobby and invites everyone to help themselves to an ‘I’d love it if’ card on reception to post any suggestions or gripe, anonymously or not. They strongly believe that listening is the very basic method of being available and approachable. There is an informal and relaxed atmosphere within the open plan building and staff are encouraged to have opinions, which are heard and addressed. Company updates are held on the last Thursday of every month and are a relaxed forum over a beer or glass of wine (sometimes even champagne) for discussions to ensure staff can see that needs are being addressed. Regular departmental away-days provide an opportunity for ideas to be shared outside the office environment, in an inspiring setting to encourage new thinking and perspective. It is not usual for teams to come back from these with an entirely new and more effective approach for their departments.
Fair Deal
Fair Deal
Inferno constantly seek and add to ways in which they can reward their staff. One way is through their ‘random acts of kindness’ where they try to catch staff doing something right and give gestures to hard working employees such as dinner with a partner or spa days. Their ‘rewarding tenure’ includes additional holiday days to employees after three years and a bottle of champagne with a note from the board on every employment anniversary. They also have an introduction fee where they give £1500 to an employee that introduces a successful candidate to the company. On the spot bonuses are given for outstanding contributions and new business rewards are given to any employee who sets a new business meeting up. On the last Friday of every month Inferno put on a mini social event for the agency with a generous budget set against it and larger social events are put on such as a weekend away every summer and a fantastic big-budget Christmas party. Inferno also offer free breakfasts, fruits and biscuits, have a fully stocked bar available to use after 5.30pm, Nespresso machines in each kitchen and lots of spaces to relax including two bars, an eat-in kitchen, pool table and foosball table. During summer, an ice cream fridge is kept by the roof terrace where teams are encouraged to hold al-fresco meetings. The company held a competition at Christmas where Infernoistas had the opportunity to win a Vespa scooter.
