Cyber-Duck a leading digital transformation agency, has been recognised as a well led and well managed organisation demonstrating ‘very good’ levels of employee engagement, despite the current unprecedented circumstances.
The organisation, which was established in the UK but now has a global workforce of ‘Ducks’, has been certified by Best Companies and recognised for their commitment to employees, with a 1 star accreditation rating.
Throughout the pandemic, Cyber-Duck have ensured the mental and physical wellbeing of their employees is paramount.

They also introduced an ‘It’s OK’ policy. This outlines that if staff feel demotivated, need time away to look after children or to take deliveries, then, it’ OK.
Cyber-Duck says increasing the scope, transparency and regularity of their company announcements meeting is the best thing they have done for employee engagement during these difficult times. Their CEO takes this opportunity to interact with employees on both a professional and personal level, being realistic and transparent about current revenue, pipeline, lead generation and the potential effects of the pandemic.
