Collaboration and team culture is what it’s all about. Attraction and retention.
Having been named winners of Best Workplace for Change and Transformation in the Top 1% Workplace Awards 2022 powered by Harrington Starr. This is what makes Brickendon the best place to work. Top 1% Workplace Awards 2022 are based on organisations showcasing marketplace brilliance, not only from exceptional cultures and leadership but also in focusing on technology teams to drive the evolution of financial services. Here at Brickendon we have a family culture and view that everyone has a voice and everyone matters. We get the job done on time and in a professional way but ensure that our employees are all satisfied and feel part of the Brickendon team. Integration within our firm so that everyone has an identity.
Pierre Velinor, Head of Engagement at Brickendon, “Culture is everything , that’s how we attract people, that’s how we retain people. I have worked at Brickendon for 9 and a half years and couldn’t picture myself anywhere else. At Brickendon, we aim to deliver effectively on time and on budget but work as a family.”
Not only do we work closely as a family unit but we make the client feel part of that team as well. Transforming a work culture into another company is a special feature and one that Brickendon delve into in two specific ways.
We often will add our consultants to the client’s team to make a difference or are happy to take on the full project as a unit and deliver the project accordingly and on time. Scoping out the deliverables for a change process or fulfilling a full system build is within our grasp.
Why is this different to our competitors? Well because Brickendon has the processes and culture in place. We ensure we have a social calendar set in place for both in-house and client schedules, including visits and events.
Brickendon has locations in both India and Poland, but we always have participants in these venues from our main office in London as well as staff that understand the local culture immediately available on the ground. There is a hierarchy but it feels like a flat management structure that breeds approachability and embeds the culture within the regions. This ensures everyone is approachable and has the right voice, so that the right decisions can be made and acted upon. Everyone’s perspective is taken into account. The focus is on the people, people are the priority with the aim being support and growth.
The core business structure of Business Transformation and Change Management across digital, data and automation is helping customers to grow their revenue and profits. We work closely with our clients to define their digital strategy and develop their digital capability across the key capabilities.
Our methodology is focused around the methodologies below and we use a combination of linear and agile approaches in line with our client’s business,
- Understanding the client’s business model and the technology landscape that they are operating in
- Organisation transformation
This doesn’t only appeal to business transformation but social transformation. Relationships are the cornerstone of the business both externally and internally.
At Brickendon we still look to hire the best and brightest talent but to fit in with the core values of the firm. Hiring to fit in with future projects with the core skills needed but also culturally working with integrity and honesty. A people first strategy that is enabling our company to grow and thrive. This is what made us the winners of the Top 1% Workplace Awards 2022 and the best consultancy to work for.
