Twelve friends quit their jobs in the depth of the recession in 2008 to launch Naked Wines because they believed they could turn the wine industry on its head. Starting in tough times meant we had to innovate to succeed against established companies. Nine years on, this culture of collaboration and innovation still forms the backbone of everything we do. We have grown as a company, but we never ever forget the values that got us to where we are. We embrace our roots and don't forget why we started in the first place.
The Naked ethos is simple...
We believe that happy staff = happy customers. So we've made it our mission to create an environment and culture that inspires and empowers staff to do the best for our customers and for the business.
Work hard. Play hard.
Our shiny new HQ in Norwich has lots of areas to encourage collaboration including meeting pods, break out areas and a large lunch space where people not only eat, but also meet to work. Not only that, we believe that having fun can boost creativity and productivity - so we have lots of fun touches including a ping pong table, a fully-stocked bar and a giant slide. Turns out some of the best ideas emerge over a game of ping pong!
Employee happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do...
We offer free breakfast and free fruit. We have a Naked Walking Club, a Naked Yoga Club and we've recently worked with an occupational psychologist to design a dedicated sensory room so staff can take time out and unwind during the day. Every month we have "Free Food Fridays" where the company puts on lunch for everyone, provided by local foodies OR prepared by one of the teams
We believe that to achieve the best, you have to have the right culture
...and that doesn't just mean bean bags and free breakfast! We've created a unique 'Naked' culture which gives people a voice, inspires passion for the brand and gives them a platform to grow. And we strive to maintain the open culture that we had when we first launched as a start-up. Everyone is a hands-on contributor and feels comfortable sharing ideas and opinions. And anyone in the company can ask questions directly to Eamon, our MD.
And you don't just have to take our word for it...
