Since 1997, Fat Beehive has been building wonderful open-source websites, beautiful brands and delightful digital products for organisations that have a positive impact on the world. They offer a full range of digital services from web design and development, branding and visual identity to digital strategy, research and UX. Their mission is to support and amplify the work of organisations committed to social good and to demonstrate that an ethical business can have a positive impact on our employees, communities and the environment. They have created a work environment where staff are supported and can achieve their very best and were recognised as the UKs 8th Best Place to Work in 2019. They are proactive about increasing diversity in the tech sector and each year provide paid placements for disabled graduates through the Leonard Cheshire scheme and continually looking at ways to increase women and BAME representation in tech. They are also driven to make a positive impact on the environment and our local community. All their staff have paid volunteering days and each year we allocate a portion of our profits to the Fat Beehive Foundation, to make sure that small charities across the UK have the opportunity to expand their reach and change more lives for the better.
