plan.com is the seventh Best Small Company to Work for in the country*. Here are seven reasons why.

1. WE HAVE A DIGITAL MINDSET

As you'd expect from the fastest growing tech company in the UK*, we're heavily focused on digital innovation. When it comes to tech, we never stand still and constantly strive to stay ahead of the game. But the same applies to our people, who are constantly asked to step outside their comfort zone to do something new and exciting. People who succeed at plan.com crave adventure and broadening their horizons.

2. GLASS CEILING? RIGID CAREER LADDERS?

Nope. plan.com was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit. It's less about dealing with change and more about constantly seeking it out. No start-up would last the year if it modelled itself on a clunky corporate with painfully slow/ paralysed decision making.

3. WE SAY NO TO OFFICE JARGON

Wave goodbye to Blue Sky Thinking, pencilling in meetings and running ideas up a flag pole to get our ducks in a row. While everyone is encouraged to speak out at plan.com, we're far more concerned about action than conjecture. If you've read a book on business studies and expect it will get your foot in the door and step up the ladder – think again.

4. THAT BEING SAID... WE WORK HARD, WE PLAY HARD

It's our company motto and we live it and we breathe it. Hard work is recognised and rewarded. You can expect the plan crew to shine as brightly on karaoke night as they do in the boardroom. Do we like to celebrate? Yes! plan.com does it all. Everything from Christmas to National Hug Your Cat Day.

5. TALENTED PEOPLE

When you're surrounded by stars, you get covered in star dust. When you work with bored people who've given up on life, you spend much of your time brushing off the cobwebs.

6. NO ROBOTS

plan.com hires real folk with real personalities. We don't ‘train' our people like animals or programme them like robots; we educate, support and nurture them like human beings.

7. GREAT BENEFITS

The Holy Grail for some— plan.com rewards hard work with competitive wages and for many roles, bonuses. But there are also fun extras to be had like the Perks Card – a discount scheme giving discounts on a range of local services (anything from swanky restaurants to doggy day care).

*plan.com, a leading business telecommunications provider, ranks 7th in the Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For by The Sunday Times. We were also ranked 1st in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100, which measures the fastest growing tech companies in the UK.
