Happiness at Work should be a top priority for all companies. Studies show that happy employees have a huge advantage over unhappy ones – they are more productive, flexible, resilient, creative, make happier customers and collaborate better with their colleagues.
Sales is recognised as one of the most stressful careers, so we thought we would close out “international week of happiness at work” by recognising some of our partnered clients and the amazing work they do in regards to employee welfare within the software industry.
Snowflake are the fastest-growing cloud-based software company we’ve ever seen. Over $900m VC funding, 2k + customers, c300% YOY growth (400%+ in Europe).
In addition to their incredible growth, they have established a strong culture that values putting customers first without compromising internal excellence (see more on Snowflakes culture in our interview with International HR Director, Ian McAleese). Think Google in terms of engineering passion but like an early Salesforce from a sales scaling point of view. The kick off was skiing in Lake Tahoe and the club trip is in Costa Rica.

Looker provides a disruptive, third-generation BI platform which is highly regarded by both analysts and customers. Their success to date has resulted in an acquisition by Google for $2.6 billion.

Zara Wells, a Customer Success Manager we placed back in 2016 said: “One of the best things about Looker is that you are always learning, whether it is passively or intentionally. Everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a student; irrelevant of their job title”.
