Takes Staff to Iceland has been operating in the comms industry for over four years, but just last week they treated their entire workforce to a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ trip to Iceland.

The airtime provider’s employees spent three days experiencing some of the world’s most spectacular sights, including exploring the Golden Circle in a convoy of monster trucks, snowmobiling across a glacier, diving head-first into the Blue Lagoon and hunting down the Northern Lights.

“Work hard, play hard is not just our company motto, it’s something that we live and breathe.” said Kevin Perks, Head of HR at “We worked incredibly hard in 2017 and continued to see unprecedented levels of business growth. Iceland was a reward to our colleagues for their passion and dedication. It was an opportunity to get everyone together and to remind ourselves that hard work pays off.”

The icy adventure was kick started with ‘’, an internal event that brought the entire company together inside a jet hanger near’s headquarters in the Isle of Man. The event set out the company’s vision for 2018, delivered a review of 2017 and included’s annual staff awards ceremony.

“A lot of our colleagues and partners will remember was on a smaller scale – but we never do anything by half measures. It had a huge impact and set the bar for the entire weekend. From there, we boarded a plane for a weekend of frozen waterfalls, sparkling lagoons, glitz, glam and gorgeous food,” said Kevin.

So, why Iceland? Nick Verardi, CEO said: “We’re a very ambitious company and like to set the standard. Iceland was on a number of our bucket lists; it exceeded our expectations and will live in everyone’s memories for years to come. On a business level, we hope it helps to retain the talented people who work for us, as well as attract fresh talent to our company.”
