If you’re out and about in London, you might just see one of Mode’s branded black cabs – you can even book one to take you to a meeting with us.
Driving Better Print
At Mode, we’ve always prided ourselves on taking you where you need to be, so it’s about time we did it literally. Our black cabs are driving around London as we type, so keep an eye out!
We were extremely pleased to open our London office, giving us a hub in the city to make it easier to send out engineers or meet clients in the city. It’s even better to be part of the quintessential London experience – a black cab under the London eye (unfortunately, in the rain).
If you see our taxis, let us know!
Mode is 20 years old this year – we’ve come a long way and the world is definitely a very different place.
When Mode was born, the world was listening to Alanis Morissette, 2Pac, and Bjork. The battle of the bands was in full swing;Oasis and Blur both released a single in the same week. Blur was selling 274,000 No.1 in the charts to Oasis’ 216, 000 and was No.2 Princess Diana was still alive (and married), Facebook didn’t exist, and Steve Jobs would have to wait another year to return to Apple. Google wasn’t even invented yet!
We share our 20th birthday with MSN.com, Amazon, and Craigslist. But it wasn’t just a year for huge websites – classics were born in 1995 and we’re even starting to see some fashions come back ground.
Who Else is Turning 20 in 2015?
Clueless is the archetypal 90s show – unfortunately it hasn’t aged as well as some of the other films released in the same year. 1995 gave us Se7en, The Usual Suspects, Empire Records, Apollo 13, Bad Boys, and Braveheart. It was even the year when Toy Story came out.
Of course, cinema isn’t all the year had to offer. The Nintendo 64 is celebrating it’s 20th with us as well as the Playstation (which was originally meant to be an add-on for the Super Nintendo). George Foreman launched his Lean Mean Grilling Machine and Starbucks released their Frappuccino.
And Who’s a Little Worse for Wear?
Unfortunately, not everybody gets to be a classic. The Macarena has been retired to ironic mum dancing, and Pogs are nostalgically mentioned by people who still remember all the words to Gangsta’s Paradise.
And, in case you want to feel really old, Ross’ son Ben from Friends would be 20 years old now. Roughly the same age as the One Direction boys, then.
At Mode, we believe in investing in our staff and offering them fantastic opportunities for personal and career development. Our training and customer support is among the best in the industry, and there’s no way that we could maintain that without our valued staff.
Frank came to us as a graduate almost 3 years ago and works as an Account Manager, delivering outbound customer service to clients throughout Hertfordshire.
I joined Mode after graduating from University and it was important for me to find a career which was stimulating and offered lots of opportunity for progression.
Mode recognises and rewards hard work and commitment and I have been promoted year on year for three years running.
Since I joined the company I have received all of the support required and have learnt the relevant skills and knowledge to develop my career.
After several years in academia I was new to the business environment. With this in mind, the Mode Academy was a great place for me to learn the relevant skills required to succeed in business.
Working at Mode has made me a more independent, responsible person. It has helped me learn how to manage my finances effectively and achieve so much more in my personal life.
We have several mentors within the business who each spent time giving me advice and helping me in my early days. Once promoted, I then had a manager who became responsible for all my training.
