eCommerce SEO Agency, NOVOS, Named One of the UK’s Best Agencies to Work in 2021

After winning the Drum Search Awards, in more good news for the London-based startup digital agency, the Campaign group in their annual ‘Best Places to Work’ have named NOVOS in their country-wide listing of best workplaces for 2021.

It has also coincided with their ‘Great Place to Work’ certification where it was successful in gaining a trust score of 97% — higher than the industry benchmark — and a silver at the Company Culture Awards — adding to the enthusiasm of the team.

Samuel Hurley, co-founder of NOVOS says:

When we had grown the business enough to make our first full-time hire, we made establishing a healthy company culture that helps people thrive our top priority — our agency’s mission is to be a vehicle for the professional and personal growth of the team and commercial growth of clients. And now, 2 years, 25 employees and £1 million agency revenue later, it is great to see the agency achieving its mission so well

It is believed that a variety of employee benefit initiatives have been a key reason behind the agency’s success.

NOVOS’ Head of Operations and Culture, Olivia Royce remarks:

At NOVOS, we have a 360-degree approach to employee benefits with a strong focus on mental wellbeing. We’ve thought long and hard about the benefits that mean the most to our people, ever-growing our offering from routine internal and external training, job advancement programs, regular performance reviews, bonuses, to mentoring, which all aid professional development.

Our cultural initiatives include unlimited holidays, self-care days, yoga/meditation sessions, discount schemes, personal training sessions, and flexible working hours, ensuring staff’s personal development and happiness. We take our company values very seriously

The list of the Best Places to Work was created by Campaign and Best Companies Group. This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the marketing, advertising, and media profession.


Organisations from across the UK entered the two-part survey process to determine the Campaign’s Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organisations and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.
