Boosting staff morale, BC&F-style

Whether it's free drinks, new mobile devices, early finishes on Fridays in summer or maybe even a share in the company, there are a number of strategies employed by agencies hoping to get a bit more out of their staff. But Barnes, Catmur & Friends has taken an old-school approach with a tongue-in-cheek employee of the month scheme. And the first winner is creative Brad Stratton, in recognition of "excellence in haircut". 

As you can see, the accolade is well-deserved. 

"Brad was very happy with his new haircut, but employee of the month is unlikely to be to regular unless I start winning it," says Paul Catmur.
