WHAT IS CLUB 100?

Inc & Co Welcome Gifts
Club 100 is what we call our company benefits at Inc & Co.  All employees at Inc & Co receive a beautiful welcome pack, that includes a laser etched Chilly’s water bottle, custom-designed Ampersand Lanyard and Club 100 membership card, to use across our ever-expanding list of companies. The Ampersand Lanyard was designed by Eva Rawson, Head Designer at KNOMO London, and manufactured in collaboration with leather goods specialists Tony & Emily Carr, whose workshop is based in the New Forest. Using locally sourced, full-grain vegetable-tanned leather, the Ampersand Lanyard is a celebration of British craftsmanship & timeless design with a personal touch. That is why you will find both the Inc & Co and KNOMO London logos proudly embossed on your Ampersand Lanyard.

HISTORY OF THE AMPERSAND

The origin of the ampersand can be traced back to the Latin word ‘et’, meaning ‘and’. The E and the T that make up this word were occasionally written together to form a ligature (a character consisting of two or more joined letters). Writing the word this way saved the writer time, with one letter flowing seamlessly into the next – a form of cursive or joined-up writing.

It’s impossible to say precisely when the symbol was first written down, but an early example has been found as graffiti on a wall in Italy around 100 AD.

Our ampersand, the connection between INClusivity and COllaboration, is a symbol of how we as a Group welcome everyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, and diverse views. Through this mutual connection, we collaborate and work together towards a shared vision and common goals.

We’ve taken inspiration from the origins of the ampersand to create one destination for all your company benefits.

Welcome to Club 100.
