Creating a team culture that works can occasionally take a bit of work: as with all relationships, sometimes life is effortlessly wonderful, and sometimes we need to listen, support and rally each other through.

We take that investment pretty seriously, so it’s made us really, really happy to have been awarded The North of Tyne Combined Authority Advanced Good Work Pledge.

Note the A-word too! Not just any Good Work Pledge – the Advanced Good Work Pledge! In recognition of Different Narrative being a workplace that actively:|

  • Values and rewards our amazing team
  • Promotes health and wellbeing
  • Uses effective communications and representation
  • Develops a balanced workforce
  • Promotes and engages in social responsibility

Jo Taylor, our Director of Operations and a key driving force in our achieving the accolade, is justly proud of the external recognition. “Creating an environment in which our people feel their best has a huge impact on our quality of work and the quality of service we offer our clients.

“We survey our team on an ongoing basis for their feedback and work hard to act on suggestions and ensure that everyone feels seen and heard. Having a happy team is our priority, so to have been formally recognised in this way by the North of Tyne Combined Authority is just the icing on the cake,” she says.
