What defines us

Being a BigHander really means something to us. We understand that our success comes from our ability to build relationships and connect across teams, functions and geographies. BigHanders understand that our strength comes from being united and working together to achieve something greater than what we could achieve on our own. 

We embrace each others individuality and the unique value that each BigHander brings to the team. By combining our different backgrounds, experiences and expertise, we're able to deliver better results for our customers. We listen and support each other, creating an environment where everyone has a voice. 

Ultimately, we understand that the journey is as important as the destination, and we find ways to have fun every step along the way.

Action highlights


One measure that HR put in place over lockdown was the coffee randomiser. Peoples names are put into the ‘virtual hat’ and are randomly matched up with someone else across the global business every fortnight to have a coffee. This helped people to build their professional network, get help with projects and meet new people, and really has gone a long way to combat the isolation people have felt during lockdown and helped to support their mental wellbeing. 

We also had two little BigHander initiatives over lockdown to recognise that families from across our global business now had their children at home and looking for entertainment. The first challenge had the kids complete different art activities. The second initiative was a letter from the CEO with a £10 amazon voucher giving thanks for all their hard work keeping their Mum or Dad on track and for the time we had taken away from their parents attention. The voucher was to use on something fun to help celebrate Halloween.
