The Importance of Office Culture
Happiness and well being is central to the Giant Peach approach. It features heavily in their family values – they even measure their success on it. If the Peaches feel good, the clients feel good. We’re all humans, not robots at the end of the day and the workplace should encourage our true selves so we no longer feel the need for a separation between our ‘work self’ and ‘home self’.
Head Peach, James Read , discusses why happiness in the workplace is a priority within the business and how by creating a positive culture through well-being initiatives such as weekly yoga, home-cooked meals and flexible working fosters an environment of productivity and freedom.
