Falmouth-based marketing agency Peaky Digital is celebrating after being recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Cornwall by the Best Employers Group.
The Best Places to Work awards programme was designed to identify, recognise and honour the best places of employment in the county of Cornwall, and is made up of seven companies. Businesses entered a two-part process that consisted of evaluating policies, practices and demographics before using a survey to measure employee experience, and Peaky Digital were formally recognised and honoured in the May issue of Business Cornwall.
The agency specialises in SEO, PPC, Social Media and Email Marketing for businesses, both in the South West and further afield and the company was examined for a variety of factors for the accreditation, including training and leadership, as well as culture, team development and workplace benefits.
The company’s success as an employer is even more remarkable given that the company has rapidly grown from just three to eighteen over the past three years in a tough economic climate – but keeping the focus on benefits and wellbeing has proved key to their success.
Alongside perks like flexible and hybrid working, Peaky’s current work benefits include birthdays off, pawternity leave and digital nomad schemes.
The team focus on maintaining a strong culture with regular socials, ‘coffee bingo’ and a focus on the progression of all team members. Alongside on-the-job and regular development training Peaky team members enjoy opportunities including monthly lunch & learn presentations, podcast Friday, mentoring programmes with Directors and more.
Peaky Digital’s Managing Director Natalie Crouch says:
“To be included in the first Best Places to Work Cornwall list is really exciting, and something we believe truly reflects all the work the team has put into building a strong culture at Peaky.
“I’m immensely proud of the team we’ve grown over the past five years, and can’t wait to see what’s next in store.”
India Gumbley, Strategic Director, added: “We’ve been excited to share this news! A huge thanks to the team, who have been at the core of this great achievement. Every single one of them makes Peaky the place it is to work.
We put a huge amount of focus on the development of our team, with tailored development plans and regular investment of resource into upskilling, and we believe that this is one of the things that has made the Peaky team stand out.”
