We are a globally distributed team, focused on outputs and outcomes and we utilise ﬂexible work arrangements to create a balanced and healthy workplace. We have an inclusive, ﬂexible work environment where our people are encouraged to grow and do their best work. At Anthemis, we also offer a number of additional benefits including a dog friendly office, sabbaticals, enhanced parental leave, as well as mental health and pregnancy loss leave.
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"We have monthly mental health leave which everyone is encouraged to take and we also close the business down for two weeks over the Christmas holiday as additional leave (we also did the same in the summer last year); we have a dedicated wellbeing room which helps with accommodating needs still while in the office. We are encouraged to work from wherever we are most productive."
