About London Square


What is it like to work for London Square

Leadership
Leadership
It was always the Chief Executive’s ambition to create a company with strong values, exemplifying what he calls ‘Old School Principles’. At London Square it is clear that everyone shares this same ethos. The black and white branding runs throughout the headquarters of London Square in Ickenham, and team members proudly wear the company shield on their badge or tie. The Chief Executive can be seen living and breathing the values himself every day, whether he is eating lunch with his staff, playing table tennis with them in the garden or encouraging members of his team to view his office with an ‘open door’.

London Square has implemented the Cycle to Work scheme and has also organised corporate membership rates at nearby Hillingdon Sports Club, to help promote a healthy lifestyle to their staff. London Square has table tennis in the garden, which staff can enjoy during breaks throughout the day, giving them a chance to unwind, catch up with colleagues or even help brainstorm new ideas over a different kind of meeting table.

Each department within London Square has a weekly team meeting in which all members of staff are encouraged to feedback their ideas and suggestions. The divisional director is then given the opportunity to present these ideas to other departments for feedback at the weekly management team. Each department also has a blackboard where they can chalk up jokes, thoughts and anecdotes, with a quote from the divisional director, giving them the opportunity to share these on a daily basis with the rest of their team. Every day, the team, including the Chief Executive, eat together if they are in the office at Wagamama-style tables in the dining room or play table tennis together outside, giving staff the opportunity to discuss their ideas with other members of the company. The open plan office has a relaxed open door policy so staff can approach any member of the company when they need to, including directors in their offices, to share ideas or seek counsel.
