Why M247 IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Embracing our values of Aim High, Innovate and Win Together! We operate from our own amazing collaborative workspaces which are supercharged with positive energy, and every individual forms part of one team. Every contribution is recognised and valued and we operate in a psychologically safe environment where our people are empowered to win together. Every member of the executive team work from the office every single day, and there isn’t an ivory tower here, every colleague rolls up their sleeves and works as one team.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

We stay ahead of the curve by constantly monitoring the market and predicting change. We are completely transparent in our communication style and every individual is aware of the forward trajectory of our organisation with absolutely every employee kept in the loop at all times through weekly updates, monthly comms, manager forums, culture clubs and many more avenues. Working here feels more like a partnership than anything else, we’ve also maintained a secure working environment and protected our FTE/ org structure in an uncertain climate which is seeing many other players in the market reduce their headcount significantly.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

We operate a quarterly employee survey, for which the results are published and the exec team take responsibility for delivering commitments. Our current employee confidence score is 97% which we are very proud of. We also operate frequent forums, updates, social events, all of which designed to ensure the voice of our people is heard. We frequently implement new initiatives following employee feedback and have some real success stories from this approach.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

Operating a quarterly appraisal process, which is focussed on wellbeing, and personal and professional development. In the last year 40% of our workforce have received a promotion, hundreds of professional qualifications and accreditations have been achieved and every employee in the business had a personal development in plan, making M247 somewhere you can truly build a career. Furthermore we are very passionate about education, giving back to the community and caring for the environment, making a conscious effort to make our communities better places to live whilst caring for our planet.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

They helped create them! We did this together when we drew up our company vision and mission statement 18 months ago. Our team members spoke up on what mattered most and we listened. Our values of Aim High, Innovate and Win Together are lived and breathed by every colleague every day and we truly believe this makes us happier and more successful.

Company Practices / Love

PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES WE GIVE TO OUR EMPLOYEES THAT CREATE A LOVED WORKPLACE ARE …

Our well considered promotion pathway and internal succession plan, which means our colleagues can create a career for life here at M247, not something you usually associate with the cloud/ tech space! Our packed social calendar sees us frequently letting our hair down together and saying well done for the great work. Our approach to diversity and inclusion is pretty special too, with over 26% of our workforce female, 24% of our workforce identifying as LGBTQIA, and a super healthy balance of all other employee characteristics, we’re breaking boundaries in our sector. That makes us very proud and our employees love it too. We also have a huge focus on health and wellbeing which is always appreciated by our people.

CEO Strengths

OUR CEO SERVES AS A MODEL OF OUR COMPANY VALUES BY …

Living them every single day. He’s present and really has his finger on the pulse. He knows every colleague by name and is actively involved in talent attraction, onboarding, development, people management at all levels and crystal clear communication. He drives us forward as a truly inspirational leader, with the whole team willingly collaborating.

Benefits

EXAMPLES OF UNIQUE BENEFITS, BONUS, OR COMPENSATION WE PROVIDE ARE …

We have made multiple generous cost of living payments to every colleague in response to the rising cost of living, to help when it’s needed most. We also provide shopping vouchers and financial guidance to help our people manage their finances well. We offer many additional benefits including an employee assistance program, private healthcare, competitive market positioning on salaries and generous bonuses and commission schemes. 97% of our colleagues said recently that they were very happy with the benefits package they receive here at M247. 93% said they can see themself working here in a year too!
