Fun, perks and other cool stuff
Propellernet provides an unrivalled working environment and standout culture.
We hold an Investors in People Award for Health and Wellbeing and were named a top 10 UK workplace in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 by the Great Places To Work (GPTW) Institute.
Ninety percent of the agency team was surveyed last time by GPTW and 100% of those surveyed said: “Taking everything into account I would say this is a great place to work.”
We recently were nominated best Large Business in Sussex and our MD is Digital Woman of the Year!
We have previously won awards for our office environment and are currently redeveloping one of our floors to be an outstanding area to work and play. We also offer a health cash plan and pension plan.
Our ‘perks’ (if that’s what you want to call them) regularly feature in articles on the subject (see, for example http://www.theguardian.com/careers/2016/feb/11/from-pets-to-prizes-the-worlds-coolest-workplace-perks) but we don’t like to think of them as ‘perks’; we believe that by connecting our team’s dreams to the success of the business we are more powerful.
So, it’s not about putting 5% of company profits into a health and wellbeing fund that we collectively decide how to spend, or providing paid sabbaticals after five years’ service (all things we do); it’s about achieving our individual and collective ambitions together.
On a day-to-day basis, our Academy, which includes everything from weekly updates and monthly ‘sharefests’, to training sessions on storytelling and improvisation training, has become the glue that holds everything together; in addition, every person in the agency gets 12 ‘Propel Days’ a year – 12 days to propel themselves forward, professionally and personally.
Our people have won the Young Search Professional of the Year award at the European Search Awards twice (and been shortlisted another two times) and we’ve also picked up BrandRepublic and MAA Best Awards for how we develop our agency talent.
