In detail

Warwick House, 18 October 2013. Earlier this month the Black Pepper Software Team packed their bags and jetted off on the 70 min KLM flight to Amsterdam. Why? I hear you ask. Well, it’s all because John Cooke (MD Black Pepper Software) believes that treating the team and their partners to a weekend away is not only great for team building and employee morale but that it is also essential to encourage work-life balance and reward employees.

"Black Pepper Software would not be growing in the way it is today had it not been for the input from our passionate, and dedicated team. Making time to pause and say thank-you for all the hard work is a must in my eyes" - John Cooke, MD Black Pepper Software.

"Black Pepper Software is a great place to work and has a fantastic set of core values including passion, honesty, dedication and work-life balance. The whole team really do buy into these beliefs. It is great to be a part of such a successful, value driven organisation that takes care of each and every employee" - Laura Bishop, Marketing Manager Black Pepper Software.

This year the Black Pepper Software team have not only launched Version 2 of Companion (a leading event participation app) but also completed projects with Trafigura, TUI, Thomas Cook, Worcester BID, River Events and The University of Warwick. With more projects in the pipeline the year looks set to continue at a similar pace which suggests exciting times ahead for the Black Pepper Software team.
