Our benefits and incentivisation programmes reflect the work we do and the people within it – through salary sacrifice programmes (including the most recent launch of an Electric car option), to financial planning workshops and more longer term planning for retirement.

Our response to COVID-19

Covid hit the live events business extremely hard but following a restructure the business managed to stabalise the security of a much larger than anticipated workforce – totally supporting remote working as and when it was needed. A return to office survey showed people want to return to the office but also wanted the flexibility working from home had given them. The introduction of a Hybrid Working model is proving to be working successfully – with set days so that teams get to meet, collaborate and interact with each other again.
Some total remote working has been granted for those who needed this for their health & wellbeing.
