Herd in the community
Our office is located on the borders of Camden and Islington, in the heart of Kings Cross, one of London's largest regeneration areas with a fascinating heritage and an exciting future.
We're proud to be part of this neighbourhood and always do our best to support community initiatives in the local area.
We’re a commercially driven company, but as the social entrepreneur Muhammad Yunus once said: “Making money is no fun. Contributing to and changing the world is a lot more fun.”
This means that although we’re driven by the same commercial goals as a purely profit-making company, we measure our success in social and environmental terms, as well as financially. We have a commitment to our employees, clients and the wider local community that we’re part of to operate in a socially responsible way, and were selected as one of the UK's top 10 young socially responsible companies in 2011's Future 100 Awards.
Training and apprenticeships
As part of our commitment to social responsibility, we are currently developing a range of digital training programme for young apprentices, working in partnership with Hackney Community College. We are always supportive of projects that involve collaboration with young people, and recently completed a campaigning documentary film project with a group of young campaigners at the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.
Supporting the good work of others
We select our clients very carefully, and focus on using our skills to help organisations that are doing meaningful work. We support social innovation projects and have been involved in initiatives such as Social Innovation Camp and NESTA's Reboot Britain programme. Our staff are encouraged to get involved with non-profit organisations and over the last year have done pro bono projects for the Terrence Higgins Trust and Bond, two non-profits based in the Kings Cross area.
The developments that Herd implemented have already led to us having new blogs started in French, German and Russian. The homepage redesign is great and we can already see the impact it's having on the bounce rate of people hitting the site.
