Here at the Growth Company, we’re committed to improving the wellbeing support which we offer to our staff. Earlier this year, we made one our biggest changes as an organisation, with the introduction of agile working back in March.
By 2021, it’s believed that 79% of all organisations will be working towards, or implementing, agile working practices. This is because they recognise its ability to help improve business performance, client satisfaction and employee wellbeing.
Agile gives our staff the opportunity to work in a way that best suits their work commitments. We appreciate that the typical 9-5 routine isn’t for everyone, and dictating when and where people should work isn’t conducive to high levels of productivity and wellbeing.
Just six months in, we’re already seeing the positive impact that agile is having on our staff. Our recent Investors in People report highlighted how many people feel that the introduction of agile working has allowed them to enhance their work-life balance and wellbeing. The report commended our proactive approach to inclusivity and wellbeing, highlighting it as one of our key strengths across the Group.
Of course, it takes more than just flexible working arrangements to encourage good wellbeing and mental health. That’s why we offer a wide range of benefits and initiatives to keep our people happy and healthy.
