Case Study: Madgex

Recruitment software company Madgex shows its gratitude to employees with cakes and bottles of bubbly.
At the firm, which has 54 staff, managers send out regular thank-you emails, copying in the whole company, so people can see who has worked particularly hard on a difficult project.

Hanna Smith, HR director, says: “Saying thank-you little and often goes a long way. [Employers] can all too often overlook someone’s hard work and commitment to the company. At Madgex, we truly do value and recognise that our employees go out of their way to do their job.”

As well as small gifts, employees get a pension scheme, bonuses linked to company performance, a cycle-to-work scheme, childcare vouchers and 25-30 days’ holiday a year.
