The Amara Blog takes a look behind the scenes of their trip to Salone del Mobile 2017…

Since Amara’s creation twelve years ago it has been the dream of founders Sam & Andrew Hood for the company to appear in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for List, and in early February 2017 this dream became a reality. Along with customer satisfaction, one of Amara’s key focuses year in, year out is staff satisfaction which can be seen clearly on the Amara Blog through our outstanding staff parties, events and charity fundraising.
To meet the entry requirements for the first rung on the revered list we had to wait until Amara had grown to over fifty staff before we could enter the prestigious Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For awards. Meeting the requirements comfortably for the first time in 2016, it was decided that this was our year to enter for a chance to be a part of the lists.
After being at Amara for a few months, we thought that it was about time to find out a bit more about Merchandising Admin Assistant Maralyn. Heading over to the merchandising corner we grab five minutes with Maralyn and ask her the five questions…
