Tandberg people don’t see red at work — they just go green. The company is a worldwide provider of video conferencing and mobile video devices, so people don’t need to travel in order to communicate face-to-face.

The global company has headquarters in New York and Norway, but its UK office is based in Egham, Surrey. People feel this expanding company is going places; staff turnover is just 6% and a third of the team has joined in the past year. They believe they can make a difference to the business (84%), find their work stimulating (82%), and are excited about where Tandberg is headed (88%). Employees can relax, too, with few suffering stress because f the job (83% positive).
The company gives everyone 25 days of holiday and helps staff work from home with video technology, mobiles, paid broadband and laptops. There are also career breaks and sabbaticals available.
As well as pointing out the carbon emissions saved by using its video technology rather than travelling, the firm recycles all its rubbish and donates money to various causes.
Benefits are good too. Everyone has performance-related pay and private healthcare, which includes their families. There is critical illness cover, a wellness programme and — for almost everyone — a car allowance.
