Culture in one of the region's hottest tech companies
On Tuesday 19 June 2018, we welcomed Louise Bennison from online gaming global success, Tombola.
Louise's role focuses on the internal culture of the firm and building the profile of the online gaming company as a top employer with the region.
Louise has possibly the most interesting job title at the Sunderland based tech company, essentially looking after the wellbeing and "happiness" of their staff... Louise has the role of "Culture". And she really does live and breathe the word.
Staff retention in the digital and tech sector is a priority for many organisations, especially with a fair bit of competition for certain skills across the North East (and the wider UK).
Louise works across Tombola creating a work environment to support, nurture and develop staff in all roles and at all levels or the company. Their head office is based in Sunderland, employing staff including developers, engineers, and many staff in non-tech roles.
Billy Webber (Sunderland Software City's COO) chatted with Louise in an informal Q&A, giving an insight into the culture created at Tombola and the types of role that exist within such a large, global technology company.
