Flexible working approach
You can choose whether you come into the office 3-5 days a week, 1-2 days a week or some roles can be fully remote, unless specified as fully office-based at the time of hiring. Home is a loose term, it can be your home, your parents' home, your second home in the country, a beach side bar or the local cafe (with some security caveats!) as long as you have a stable secure internet connection, are communicating clearly with your team and use the usual channels to be transparent about your work schedule. Same with hours, you can compress, start early or late and finish early or late, take a longer lunch hour to work around your commitments or needs.
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.
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.
Overall, it's clear that employee happiness is high on the company's agenda, which makes for a relaxed, flexible working environment and a positive atmosphere.
What do we think of Crowdcube?
Crowdcube achieved great results in both flexibility benchmarks and we were impressed with the anonymouse feedback from employees. Clearly this is a company that is already ahead of many and have clear objectives to improve even further. Their dedication to flexibility and employee wellbeing is awesome to see and a big benefit to all employees.
