The owner of an award-winning digital agency in is paying to take his staff on holiday to Ibiza as a thank you for their hard work – all 26 of them.

Ollie Piddubriwnyj, managing director of Ilkeston based Fifteen, said the three-day holiday in the summer will be to celebrate the company achieving record growth and reaching a record turnover.

The company recently acquired Nottingham based Attitude Design for an undisclosed sum and is planning on recruiting four more staff, which means they are also on the look-out for bigger premises as they are outgrowing the current premises at Armstrong’s Mill in Middleton Street.

Ollie said: “For me it’s all about recognising achievements by reward. We have had a record year for growth and are heading towards having 30 plus staff. Six years ago it was just me.

“This will be the first time I have taken my staff away. We have had an extraordinary year which requires an extraordinary reward.”

The holiday ties in with a range of other staff incentives the company operates in line with its year of well-being for Derby Charity Stress Aid, with the aim of being healthier and happier. As well as encouraging staff to take part in various incentives around the themes of mental wellbeing – including team yoga classes – Fifteen is providing the charity with voluntary digital services throughout the year.

The company also has monthly socials such as curry nights, a fruit bowl that is never empty and beer o’ clock at 4pm every Friday when everyone turns off their computer and has a beer.  There is also has a running club, quizzes and company massages.
