Organised by Event Tech Live, the Event Tech – The People Awards, gives recognition to the people and the talent behind the best event technology.
The judges on making their selection noted that they loved the varied background of Totem’s co-founders, which they believe has led to a unique company dynamic and a hiring strategy that looks for a cultural fit, rather than an exact professional or experience fit.
Tom Valentine – Head of People Culture & Talent at Totem says “Our people are exceptional. Every individual contributes to our success and it is only right that they are justly rewarded for their talents, commitment and hard work. We are focused on being one of the very best organisations to work for, and will continue to explore, adapt and develop new offerings in the future. We love this award because it shines a light on the individuals who make a difference within the sector.”
How does Totem provide a great work culture and environment?
Company values and culture are developed and defined by the team. At Totem we have a Leap Program (learn, earn and progress) where people are able to join for a year to gain, hands-on experience across all areas of the organisation, development opportunities, mentoring, and receive the London Living wage.
We offer a flexible working policy (location and times), with a home working allowance for each member depending on their role type and outside work circumstances, and flexibility around family obligations.
We have a diverse team with members from all over the UK. Social culture is highly valued at Totem. We foster enjoyment at work. We take our work seriously, but don’t take ourselves too seriously. We take enjoyment in our work, mirroring the enjoyment we create for our clients.
