You won’t want to stay at home…

The Diary hears that C4 is developing a ground-breaking new series about improving the workplace.

Flashback TV, the production company developing the series, is on the lookout for inspiration, and the Diary feels it need look no further than the strange world of advertising.

At the top of the pile for staff contentment must surely be St Luke’s, where you can play snooker and work in a room to suit your mood. Staff at the agency have no excuse for popping out for a sandwich – they can stuff themselves with organic meals from the staff kitchen.
