Maris have a monthly beauty treatment day, where a meeting room is taken over and staff can sign up for a free massage, a haircut or a manicure, it has proved to be a great way for staff to take 20 minutes out of their busy day to unwind. When the sign up list is put up staff always react excitedly and the list is full very quickly. They also provide a monthly lunch to employees. A local restaurant or food stall is selected, vouchers are printed and handed to staff to go and collect their free lunch. They give staff their birthday as a day’s holiday, or a day within their birthday month. In addition, they close down between Christmas and New Year which is free time off for employees. The in house coffee shop, FOAM, provides fresh fruit, cereals, a daily snack and teas and coffees and is a unique and relaxing environment where staff can take a break at any time during the day.

Maris Interiors believe that they have a wonderfully unique way to reward their employees for their hard work. Each year they plan a trip abroad for the entire company. This year they went to Ibiza for the second time and have just booked to go again in 2017. The employees love it so much they keep wanting to return. They book 3 nights in a top 5-star hotel for their employees, pay for the hotel, their flights and transfers, a party for two nights and a team day out, as well as providing pocket money to those who earn below a certain amount. The annual trip is something that Maris are so fortunate to be able to do for their employees, it is talked about all year round and everyone has a wonderful time. They also reward employees for a job well done with a quarterly team night out. This can be anywhere or anything, for example, one team travelled to the Isle of White for a day and night and got involved in a number of team activities. Other than a number of social activities throughout the year, they also reward staff financially when they have done well through the commission and bonus scheme. Each month the company nominates and votes for the ‘star of the month’, a person in the business who has gone above and beyond. They choose a prize from the tombola, typical prizes are a night’s stay in a top London hotel or dinner for two in a Michelin star restaurant.
