Chief executive Dan Craddock led his 90-strong island team on a tour of their new seven-storey headquarters at Celtic House in Victoria Street, Douglas.

The technology firm plan.com plans to move into the building next year with plenty of room to accommodate expansion plans and members of their UK team when they are permitted to visit the island again.

A spokesman said next year’s actual move date is still to be confirmed as ’naturally the project has been delayed as a result of the pandemic restrictions this year’.

The business is currently based on the second floor of IOMA House in Hope Street.

The company set out its 2021 business goals at its annual staff event, using the site of its new headquarters as the centre stage.

Renowned for ’going big’ with events and ideas, the telecoms provider, who recently ranked fifth in the Best Small Companies to Work For Sunday Times list, took the 90-strong team for a tour of the building led by Mr Craddock.

Kitted out with branded hardhats, high-vis vests and tour-guide style headsets, Mr Craddock led the team around the seven-storey building site, complete with a live video and audio stream for those unable to attend in person.

A spokesman said that ’from basement to rooftop, the building puts plan.com employees front and centre, with futuristic and high tech design, alongside natural materials and relaxed meeting spaces to complement its work hard, play hard culture’.

Speaking on site Mr Craddock said: ’Our people and our values - trust, passion, excellence - are the focus of our business and we’ve gone to great lengths to reflect that throughout the whole building to allow our culture to shine through.’

He continued: ’We’ve focused on creating a space to blend the excitement and energy of our sales and service teams, with the focus and attention of our technical experts, to really bring the whole team together. It’s all about collaboration and communication, utilising space and light to create an environment where our people and their ideas can thrive.’

The tour ended at the top of the building, where Mr Craddock presented the business goals and vision for 2021 on a six metre presentation screen, set up specifically for the event.

Nicola Patterson, head of people experience at plan.com, said: ’Our people are the reason behind our success and it’s important that we take the time to discuss the future and celebrate our achievements together, especially after the difficult year we’ve all faced.’

She added: ’There’s a lot for our people to look forward to and there’s no doubt we’ll be looking for new plan.com superstars to join us for the ride.’

plan.com says it has gone from strength to strength since partnering with network giant O2 in 2014.
