Having fun?

by Andre Vaux

Andre is Managing Director at claireLOGIC – a business which delivers IT and Communications services to businesses in the UK.

Are you enjoying life? We spend a lot of time at work. How’s that working out for you? I believe when you’re at the office it’s important to have a good atmosphere which promotes excellence in work and promotes development at a personal level for team members. Culture is key.

I also believe in having fun at work – after all, during our life we’ll most likely spend more time with our co-workers than our partners or children. So choosing the right people to spend your time with is a really important decision we make as leaders. Not only do those people need to be able to perform their role well, but they also need to be able to dodge an incoming Nerf bullet! And as Michael Heppell says in his book How to be Brilliant – “you’re the average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with”. What does your average look like?

Wherever I’ve worked I’ve always promoted humour and fun as it helps with team cohesion and culture so much. Jokes have often been at my own expense! I’m pleased to say that at claireLOGIC we have a lot of laughs. We recently had a professional photographer come in to take new shots as part of our imminent rebranding. The whole team enjoyed the experience – we had fun.

I feel so lucky to spend time in a great team. As Richard Branson said – “If you look after your staff well, they will look after your customers”.

Are you happy where you are? We’re looking for new team members for technical, finance and administrative roles. Would you like to be part of the journey? Take a look at our Careers page.
