Why?

Earlier this year Chillisauce announced its biggest ever expansion, with plans to take on 25 new staff members before the end of the year. Last month, it stated it had topped this by taking on a total of 26 new hires, including eight senior account managers. The agency has released a number of new teambuilding packages this year and seen a 25% increase in corporate bookings, as well as putting together events for well-known brands such as Fossil. This year it entered C&IT’s Top 50 UK Agencies table and ranked 12th, based on its 2014 UK event-based turnover.

What they say:

Michael Chidzey, marketing director at Chillisauce, said: "2015 has been an exciting year for us. Thanks to high-profile, aspirational companies like Google and Facebook, who recognise the importance of developing corporate cultures and investing in employee happiness to retain talent, more companies are looking for creative, bonding, team building solutions to improve their staff’s overall well-being.

What does 2016 hold?

After its recent recruitment drive, the agency intends to keep on expanding in 2015 and build on all areas of the business, including corporate events, parties and team building days for its major blue chip clients.

Chidzey said: "We have enjoyed 10 consecutive years of double digit growth and we will continue to expand our reach on both the B2C and B2B sides of the business in order to become even stronger in 2016."
