At Giant Peach, we aim to make a difference in everything we do. This is an ethos that influences every aspect of our brand and starts in the workplace.
As an ethical digital agency, we know that education is vital and we run a number of weekly initiatives that inspire the Peaches to thrive.
#MeatFreeMondays encourage the team to more regularly eat a plant-based diet, which is both good for our health and for the planet. #WellnessWednesdays see us discovering new ways to look after ourselves, whether that’s through creating superfood shots, swapping smoothie recipes or sharing tips for general well being. And on #FatFridays, we take it in turns to cook a healthy meal from scratch for the whole team. It’s a great way of perfecting our cooking skills, as well as making nutritious eating a habit.
We’re committed to achieving the collective health of the mind, body and soul, and are progressing into regular meditation, office yoga and the sharing of inspirational quotes. An active bunch, we’re often found comparing notes on our latest workouts and have even been known to get a little competitive… which we only consider a good thing!
When it comes to office equipment, we invest in ergonomic Herman Miller chairs, which provide comfort throughout the day. As well as inspiring creativity, our pool table – which takes pride of place in the centre of our barn – encourages us to take regular breaks, rather than merely suiting its agency setting. For when our backs need a little more help, we have a masseuse who visits every quarter and gives everyone a back and shoulder massage – essential for anyone who spends extended time at a desk in front of a screen.
In terms of regular purchases, we run an office tuck shop, stocking tasty but healthy treats, such as vegetable crisps, unsalted nuts and air-popped popcorn. And our coffee? You wont find anything but organic and fair-trade brands in our kitchen. However, you’ll typically find us sipping on a herbal, green or matcha tea, which are all healthy and delicious.
We also believe the little things matter. Our cleaning products are natural and chemical-free and our aroma zen diffuser’s essential oils help to keep us calm, energised and balanced.
Giant Peach knows the healthier we are, the happier we are – and the happier we are, the more productive we are. This, in turn, means we’re best placed to #MakeADifference for our clients and the world at large.
