When your company promise is “to impact lives beyond the day job”, you need to make sure you deliver on that. Which is exactly why – when they couldn’t find a suitable operating system to fit their ambitions – global strategy agency StrategiQ decided to build their own.

With offices in Ipswich, London, Manchester and the Midlands, StrategiQ is known for solving business challenges with marketing strategies that deliver results. They work collaboratively and intelligently across all marketing channels, including brand, web, design, UX, SEO, social media, PPC, PR, email, content and video.

StrategiQ’s unique, custom-built (and now award-winning!) operating system is designed to enable every member of their agency to thrive both professionally and personally. The system houses everything from PDP frameworks and training plans; to weekly goal setting and training modules; to MVP nominations and your own ‘belief wall’ of good news that colleagues have shared about you. 

Impressively, it also integrates with MOJO motivational maps, meaning that every member of the team can see each other’s insights to understand what motivates every individual and the best communication methods to use with them. As Sarah Smith, CPO at StrategiQ says: “We’re an inclusive workplace, acknowledging that every single individual is different. Running psychological and motivational audits for our team and displaying those on the OS ensures everyone has visibility of how to communicate effectively and respect individual differences. We think that initiatives like this are part of why we’ve been named in the Sunday Times Best Places to Work list this year.”

The judge’s feedback about StrategiQ’s operating system commented in particular on the helpful integration with other tools: “StrategiQ displayed exceptional performance in implementing a bespoke HR tool. Their commitment to clear evaluation has resulted in noticeable improvements in individual and organisational performance and the seamless integration with Hubspot, Scoro, Xero, and Google Workspace is highly impressive.” 

We asked StrategiQ what it means to them to win the award for Best HR Tool at the UK Company Culture Awards. CTO James Bavington, who was at the awards ceremony to celebrate the big win, shared how important it is for the whole StrategiQ team: “We truly believe in promoting from within and nurturing talent at StrategiQ. Our operating system helps us to do exactly that. It’s rare that an operating system would have such a big impact on agency culture so we know we’ve built something special. We’re so proud to see it recognised by our industry peers too.”

If the award-winning operating system sounds like a tool that would be useful for transforming your agency operations and culture, then you’re in luck – it will soon be available for all agencies. Andy Smith, CEO at StrategiQ, announced: “We are excited about the future of our operating system and the impact we believe it can have for agencies and organisations. It is currently being developed as a SaaS, so knowing we have an award-winning product – built by an agency, for agencies – gives us a lot of confidence to go to market”.
