Flexible working approach
We’re proud of the culture we’ve cultivated here at Brightpearl. We are a remote friendly organisation, who fully believe that flexibility enables our people to choose where and how they work best, so that they can be successful and achieve their desired work-life harmony. Our perks and benefits are curated with our people first in mind. With a focus on wellbeing, inclusion, feeling connected to others across the company, and working within a supportive environment, we recognise that individuals have different preferences and needs.
Our decisions and actions are based on our core PEARL values. It’s this approach that’s given us our competitive edge and drives our shared success. We encourage learning and development, with opportunities for everyone. Our communication is open, with global and local all hands, and open access to an approachable senior leadership team, and we proactively seek feedback so that everybody is included and can be heard.

Employee benchmarking score
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.
"I have worked in both of the Brightpearl offices, they both have their own special feel, partly due to the different people, but both offices are a place I want to be. When I started at Brightpearl I was one of the few WFH'ers, not because it wasn't allowed, just because people were so happy to be surrounded by the rest of the team and the culture (and the beer fridge). Brightpearl works because the people who work there want it to work - due to this they can and do trust us to deliver and achieve however best suits us, either in an office at the bottom of the garden, or the well provisioned and comfortable office space in town (certainly a mixture of the two). I have nothing negative to say about the way Brightpearl treats its staff, I have never been happier in an organisation."
