Work shouldn’t be a chore. It should be something you enjoy.
“Laser Red isn’t a place for people who just want a digital career, it’s a place for people who love their work”
Liam O’Leary, Managing Director
Knowledge is power
We can’t afford to get left behind. So when you come to work at Laser Red you can expect to benefit from a host of different training and learning experiences.
- Training and conference allowance
- Hack/training days
- 90-day self-improvement goals
- Biweekly 1-2-1’s
- Quarterly targets, reviews and bonuses
Education and self-improvement are mega important to us – it gives us our superpowers!
Work hard… Play hard!
We really love our work, but even the most dedicated teams need some downtime. We make sure an office is a place that nurtures creativity. Somewhere we can conjure up winning marketing campaigns and awesome websites, but somewhere we can relax and socialise too.
Unwind with a game of pool, throw some arrows, maybe have a crack on the retro gaming console; or just take some time in the breakout area to gather your thoughts and give the old brainbox a rest.
Rewarding great work
We know a good job when we see one, and when a member of the team has smashed it, we make sure they are rewarded. We love to show appreciation when a team member:
- Hits a target
- Gets great client feedback
- Completes their work sooner than planned
- Goes above and beyond
A digital career with people in mind
We’re mindful that not everyone’s situation is the same, so we have introduced a flexible start and finish schedule to allow different team members to come and go at times of the day that suit their personal life.
We have found this especially helpful to those of the team who are parents, meaning they can fit work around the school run, holidays and commitments.
For further flexibility we have also introduced remote working. Again, we recognise that not everyone is the same, and what works for one person doesn’t always work for another.
Remote working has allowed the team to choose where they wish to work and when. This could be at home, from a coffee shop or even while abroad – one team member worked from Thailand for 3 months.
We provide all of the right training and equipment in order to make sure remote workers still feel like part of the team.
Each member of the team has two wellbeing days a year that they can use to take the day off work to improve their own wellbeing – rest, relaxation or even extreme sports, we don’t mind. It’s your day to do what makes you happy.
These are not classed as holidays and do not affect their holiday allowance. They are designed to reduce the number of sick days, burnout and stress – and yes sometimes hangovers. We’re human beings just like you.
We have two offices in Lincolnshire
Some may say it’s grim up north, but we beg to differ. Lincolnshire is one of the largest and prettiest counties in the UK.
Here are some interesting facts about Lincolnshire.
There’s no Grim here!
- Based in the heart of Grimsby
- 2000 sqft warehouse style
- On-site free parking
- Pool table
- Good road, rail and bus connections
We are surrounded by beautiful villages, stunning coastline, and the best of the Lincolnshire countryside. There’s always plenty to do too.
City center working never looked so good.
- Based in the heart of Lincoln
- 400 sqft office
- Over 5000 sqft open work area
- Great road, rail and bus connections
- LOTS of great local coffee shops close by
Being at the center of Lincolnshire, Lincoln is pretty close to everything. Surrounded by many villages with plenty of beautiful countryside.
Furry friend’s welcome
Dogs have been proven to reduce stress in the workplace. How can they not, just look at those cute little faces!
We’re a dog-friendly office, your pooch is welcome anytime, as long as they’re house trained, pretty calm and will take on the very real responsibility of crumb clean up.
We try to be heroes in many ways, but possibly the most important way we do that is actively encouraging the team to give blood.
All team members can schedule to give blood at the local blood drive. They can do this as much as they want throughout the year and they are paid in full for the time spent at the blood bank.
On average the team donated over 20 pints of blood each year.
The BIG event
Every quarter we organise a big fun team event, all out of the bosses pocket. We’ll have a go at most things and in the past we’ve been known to partake in a little bit of this:
- trampoline parking
- big cinema premiers
We also try to get in one smaller team event each month. Even if it’s just a few drinks together at the local, or a movie or board game night.
Do some good
It’s not all about us… we mean, it is a bit, but we like to do our bit for the greater good and we love a bit of charity fun(d)raising. The dafter the better, from dressing up, crackers challenges to the more serious business of charity balls and events. We go big or go home!
As well as the big boys, we like to support a local charities as well, some close to our team’s heart. We do this with lots of fundraising and providing our expert services to help them achieve better awareness and increase donations.
