We Are Outstanding: Best Companies 2014



Earlier this month, We Are Social was accredited with two stars from Best Companies in 2014, meaning we’ve been recognised as an outstanding company to work for. It reflects the work we’ve been doing over the past year to find out what our team think about working here at We Are Social, and making changes based on their feedback.

Best Companies has been giving out this accreditation since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace, focusing on workplace engagement as an integral part of the success and growth of an organisation.

Each company that enters the Best Companies Accreditation is given an overall score based on a survey of its employees. It’s actually pretty rare for a company to be accredited on their first attempt, let alone given two stars, so we’re really proud of our achievement.

We’ve implemented lots of staff benefits in the last year which have helped us gain this accreditation. These include private medical cover for all employees and an employer contributory pension scheme – as well as the fun stuff like monthly massages, film club, running club and life drawing.

We also try to spend our spare time having fun with regular team parties, as well as raising money for charities close to our hearts by organising fundraising events such as our ‘Great We Are Social bake off.’

This is just the start – we’re constantly trying to make We Are Social a better place to work. For example, we recently unveiled our brand spanking new and first ever Grad Scheme, which will be starting in September.

We’ve also been busy expanding, and with huge growth once again last year, we’re busy and loving it! But this means we need more awesome, passionate and inspiring people to join the We Are Social family.

In London, we’re currently looking for Social Media Writers and a Senior Editor to join our ever-growing Editorial team. We also have an eye out for a Senior Designer, Mid-Weight Strategist and a Senior Client Side Developer.

If you would like to join the team here at We Are Social, to be part of an exciting journey and have some fun along the way, then get in touch, we’d like to talk to you!
