IOVOX: The one with a bit of rock ‘n’ roll
Founded in 2007 by entrepreneurs Ryan and Belinda Gallagher, IOVOX is a cloud-based provider of telephone analytics technology.
Carl Di Cicco, managing director of EMEA, IOVOX, said: “The idea behind the office is to create a space where people want to be. We found the place in a pretty dishevelled state but loved the fact that it had so much air and light, and saw an opportunity to build a perfect work environment. It’s open plan, it’s quirky, but it’s a relaxed atmosphere with a great deal of space so that it’s never oppressive.
“At the same time, open plan makes it easier to be collaborative, absolutely vital when working in a creative industry like technology. And we’ve furnished the office as much as we can to encourage collaboration and have a creative, fun atmosphere.
“The pool table and musical instruments aren’t just for enjoyment, they are creative outlets for people to blow off some steam while on the job. You can have exactly the same planning sessions around the pool table as you would have in the boardroom, but the reality is that having it around the pool table is going to keep your employees engaged. It’s not just that happier employees work longer, but that everyone is happier to be in the office and work together, and ultimately this creates better outcomes for everyone.”
