If you think employment contracts are dull, raise a cheer for Three.

The communications company prides itself on its fresh thinking and this time it really is ‘out of the box’.

Recognising that staff contracts need to be digestible to compel word-for-word reading, it sweetens the chore by adding a chocolate bar and tea bags in neatly designed packaging worthy of Apple. Maybe the comms team imagined new employees sitting comfortably on a sofa to digest their contract while munching a treat and sipping a brew.

Some may think this is a waste of resources. For my money, any company that thinks this hard about how its new staff will view its communications is doing something right.
