In recognition of how Broadplace have worked to keep their company culture alive during the challenges of lockdown, we have been shortlisted for Remote Working Initiative of the Year by the Company Culture Awards. Key to our submission gaining this recognition was how we worked to refresh the brand, got the team together for charity and virtual social events and implemented recognition programmes to ensure our colleagues get the recognition they deserve.
“Our culture is one that cares, nurtures expertise, is fun, inclusive and rewarding for all. The onset of lockdowns and permanent working from home meant we had to adapt our business model to a new way of working whilst ensuring we kept and grew the culture that we are so passionate about. Whilst physical amenities in the office helped our culture along, it’s much deeper than that. Our culture is our identity, our behaviour and it’s defined by our company values. Adapting our approach was not about changing our behaviour it was simply about adapting the vehicles we used to nurture it. Despite being impacted by Covid it was felt that the business needed to keep remote workers engaged. The decision was taken not to furlough any staff and instead the business invested in looking after our staff’s wellbeing and prioritising special projects that needed to be completed. So we used some of the downtime created by the impact of Covid to get these tasks completed.”
