Values & Culture

Our values

Sustainability

We support the global process towards sustainability. We strive to make sustainable choices wherever we can, through our personal actions and our Lottery operations, working with sustainable partners and making charitable contributions.

Sharing

Our winners share the prizes with their neighbours. The charities we support always ‘win’ by sharing in the lotteries’ net contributions and, in turn, sharing them with their own beneficiaries. Internally, we share our knowledge and skills with each other. In everything we do, we try to benefit the planet that we all share together.

Fun

Obviously the players enjoy the games and win great prizes. We enjoy our jobs as well. Through the social organisations, we can make a meaningful contribution to society by supporting both people and the planet.

Courage

We have the courage to act outside established frameworks. We come up with solutions others haven’t yet thought of or tried. We put our weight behind charities and NGOs that show that same courage.

Values & Culture

People are at the heart of what we do

Whether it’s our team, our players or the thousands of good causes supported, our aim is to play our part in creating a fairer, more equal world. We are open to ideas and are committed to creating a culture that is inclusive, representative and celebrates diversity in everyone. But we are not perfect. 

We will always strive to do better that’s just who we are.

“The media investment team at PPL are welcoming, creative and passionate about delivering growth. We ensure our varying disciplines (Print, AV, Digital) work closely together, harnessing media synergies to ensure we deliver the best campaigns possible. We work closely with marketing, comms and insights to ensure our campaigns are well executed and measurable, giving exposure to other disciplines internally which helps fuel professional growth”.

Our Community

As well as working in close collaboration with our clients, and the online marketplaces, we are active members of groups that have been established to combat illicit trade. These include the Scottish Anti-Illicit Trade Group, the European Intellectual Property Office, The Scottish Business Resilience Centre, the Anti-Counterfeiting Group, and the China Britain Business Council. Members of our senior management sit on the boards of ACID (Anti-Copying in Design), the Scottish Ministerial Trade Board, and the European Union Intellectual Property Office’s Observatory Panel for SMEs, amongst others.

Each team member nominates good causes or charities that are supported on both an individual and corporate basis. Wherever possible, we support the employee’s involvement whether through time or fundraising events.

Our Environment

We deliver purpose-driven work from an extremely welcoming environment near the City Centre. We actively encourage the responsible use of resources, from using public transport to reuse, recycling, and, of course, a minimal impact office environment. We have benefited from the advice of the Energy Saving Trust and Resource Efficient Scotland. Our waste contractor also provides us with a monthly report on volumes and types of material and the carbon emissions avoided through recycling.

Over 80% of our employees can walk or cycle to The Lair and, pre-pandemic, 10% were using public transport as their normal daily commuting mode. Without doubt, online meetings will replace considerable miles, going forward, saving resources, time and energy. Where possible, when possible, the train remains our preferred option. 

Our People

Our people are our most important asset, and their mental well-being and happiness are core to our success. We love our diverse workforce, actively embrace flexible working (even pre-pandemic!) and encourage a healthy work-life balance. We have been recognised as one of the most diverse SME workplaces in the UK and are holders of the Scottish Business Pledge which exists to promote a fairer Scotland. We have also just been included in the 2021 Culture Leaders Top 25 – an accolade of which we are very proud!

We are a fully inclusive and nurturing employer and, despite being in tech, the majority of our team are women, leading to accolades in the Computing Magazine Women in IT Awards and the Amazon Growing Business Awards. We currently represent 15 nationalities and speak 20 languages. Age is no barrier, and we recruit for attitude, providing and encouraging appropriate learning and training for each and every role.

We are also proud members of IP Inclusive, a network of professionals working to make the intellectual property industry more diverse.

Our Purpose

Our aim is to combat illicit online trade by identifying and removing counterfeits for sale. Counterfeits not only damage brands, their reputations, and revenues, but can cause significant harm to the end customer – whether as a fake toy or a fake medicine – and the consequences can be life threatening.

Counterfeiting is a significant economic and social issue.

The OECD reports that counterfeit and fake goods make up more than 3.3% of the world’s global trade. Those involved in the trade of counterfeits have been linked to people trafficking, prostitution, and drug dealing.

As such, reducing illicit trade is about much more than brand protection but also about human rights, safety, and social equity.

And this is what we do, every day.
