The fun a Company Hug caused at Clearview Traffic Group

At Clearview Traffic, we’re strong believers in striking the right work/life balance as a means to driving employee engagement, team working, and the resultant strong productivity it can yield.


And as a leading provider of road safety solutions, traffic data solutions, intelligent transport systems and congestion monitoring solutions, it’s important to get the balance right – our team is our biggest asset in delivering the best products and systems to market.

But even in work, it’s important to have fun and let your hair down once in a while. So every few months, we hold a ‘Company Hug’.

It’s an important date in the diary for everyone here at Clearview Traffic: a day to spend with colleagues away from the daily grind of phones ringing, emails pinging, and meetings.

It’s a chance to catch up on how the business is performing, understand where we are going, and how we intend to get there. It’s a time for reflection and sharing of new ideas and plans. And that’s what we did again recently on a beautiful sunny day in mid-July.

First order of business on the day is everyone gets up and hugs the people standing either side of them – and it won’t necessarily be the same folk that you work with closely every day as we scatter people randomly amongst the tables.

It might seem silly, but it’s an important ice-breaker and gets people to talk and raise a smile.

Then we spend a short time talking about what we have achieved over the last period, sharing the good, the bad and the ugly and celebrating our victories. We also share the company vision for the next financial quarter, and get people excited about how the business is changing.

So that’s the serious bit, but there’s serious fun to be had, too!

Starting with a team quiz with highly-sought-after prizes such as chocolate and bottles of fizz awaiting the winning team and exercising the minds on a number of rounds: everything from general knowledge to company history and ‘name that baby’ featuring old baby photos of members of staff.

If that wasn’t enough, a cracking BBQ ensued, followed by a full afternoon of wet and wild ‘It’s a knockout!’ style activities.


Work hard, play hard.

It’s a philosophy that rewards everyone on days like this. A great way to spend a day at work, learn more about your colleagues, and make new friends.
