we're one of the best companies to escape to!

We're super excited to have made it into the top 100 in 'The Escape 100: Best Companies to Escape to 2019' awards!

We were measured against 6 criteria: mission, impact (scale), innovation, environment, B-Corp status and workplace culture and achieved one of the top 100 scores of any organisation reviewed. Doing business a bit differently and creating a happy workplace is really important to us so we’re so proud to have received this score… especially since escape the city received over 1500 nominations!

We always try our best to create a happy office environment for everybody - after all, it's where we spend most of our week! Some of our perks include healthcare, enhanced pension schemes, free oats and fruit, book swaps, weekly fitness classes and (of course) free tea – loads of it! A big part of our culture is our ethical scheme, where we give back to the communities that bring us our tea. Most of the tea for our signature everyday brew and all of the tea for our single estate breakfast tea comes from Gisenyi, Rwanda, so we work with the Point Foundation charity to support orphans and vulnerable people in the area. We also make a donation with every pack of of these teas we sell, match donations our customers make on our website, run fundraising events (think pop up shops and tough mudder!) and all the money we make from our tea school ticket sales also goes to the charity. So far we've raised over £300,000 and we're keen to do more! 

Some of the team have been spreading the love (thanks, guys!) - here are a few comments from them:

“Great place to work, a fab bunch of people & lots of perks (who doesn’t love free tea, lunchtime fitness sessions and gin Fridays!)”

“A fast paced environment where the team have the freedom to do their best work. You get what you give, and with a focus on supporting and developing a young team into experienced leaders you can go a long way if you knuckle down."

"I love working for a company so invested in its ethical and sustainability schemes. The office has an incredibly friendly vibe - who could be moody with so much free tea around!"

We want to say a big thank you to all teapigs – old and new – for helping make teapigs what it is today!
