Recently we announced that Replify was shortlisted for ‘Best Company to work for’ in the 2015 Belfast Business Awards.

We had to attend a judging panel interview along with the other finalists and the winners were announced at the gala dinner at Belfast City Hall on Wednesday evening. Two of us got suited and booted for the occasion and attended the dinner which was great craic, nice food and good company.

We were seated a table with various companies including Rumour Mill PR, Utopia, Big Bad Llama & Traction Finance. Sadly we were unsuccessful this time with AllState NI grabbing the prize.  Well deserved!  We’ll be back next year though for another go for the title.  We feel lucky to have been shortlisted as ours was the largest category.


Today we are celebrating in true Replify style by having a glass of Malbec on a Friday afternoon.  We try and reserve Friday afternoons for tasks that are slightly out of the ordinary. Staff choose what they want to do on Friday afternoon, rather than just picking up a task off the Kanban. E.g. We write blog entries, investigate new technologies, refactor a piece of code that has been bugging us for a while etc.

All these tasks are non-urgent, however in the long term contribute both to personnel development and the overall value of the company and product. We also hope it boosts staff morale after a hard week of work. 😉
