Giving Back: 13 Charitable Organisations Supported by Sitback Employees

Like many companies, Sitback wasn’t able to gather in person at Christmas last year due to ongoing challenges with the Omicron variant. And because we made the decision to postpone our party in the interest of protecting our team, we didn’t hold our usual gift exchange. 

Instead, Sitback’s CEO, Chris McHugh, thought it would be in keeping with our company’s core value of "Community" to redistribute some of the money we would have spent on gifts as charitable donations to the causes that are close to our team’s hearts. As a part of this effort, every Sitback employee was able to select a charitable organisation to receive a contribution.

How To Work From Home - Sitback Style

Well, this last week has been one hell of a long year. And with our entire team now working from home, we thought we would share a few little gems about what we have learnt so far on the topic of going loco ‘fully remote’: some of it funny, some of it helpful, some of it just plain ramblings as the lack of human face-to-face interaction drives us slowly crazy.

Announcing Our New Service Design Workshop Toolkit

Running Service Design Workshops


Human-Centred Design (HCD) professionals are broadening their scope beyond straight-forward interaction design to focus more on strategy, business, and services. This is something we have increasingly had the opportunity to do at Sitback. Many of our projects now have the Service Design philosophy deeply embedded in them, and increasingly we are incorporating various layers of Service Design to our UX projects with our clients.

Because of this, we have created a Service Design Workshop Toolkit to assist our fellow Human-Centred Design professionals in practicing and incorporating Service Design in their day-to-day work.

It is very much an 'alpha' version, and consequently we would love to hear your feedback so that we can continuously improve it, making it even more useful for everyone that uses it!
