Review

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Emerald Publishing provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Emerald Publishing is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

Emerald Publishing's employees have anonymously had their say in what they think of the company

I like the confidence and autonomy I have to deliver my work regardless of the hour I work. This makes it much easier for people who work with time zones and assist clients in several countries.

Flexible working at Emerald Publishing

We perform at our best when we feel trusted and are able to choose an approach to working that suits us best which is why Emerald offers fully flexible hybrid working. We have no core hours so you really can work when suits you best. All we ask is that you be fully transparent with your availability and ensure business needs are met.

We have office space which you can choose to work from or you can be fully remote. We also support part time working and compressed hours.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

We believe passionately in equitable representation, influence and opportunity for all; regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, gender, age or socioeconomic background. But the truth is that within Emerald and our communities we still have a long way to go.  We must consistently invest our time and resources to ensure that our workplace is inclusive and accessible by design, and that we are playing our part in driving change within our communities.

Our action plan for diversity, inclusion, and accessibility is sponsored by the executive team and is driven by a network of employees who are empowered to make sure that our strategy remains meaningful and relevant to our communities around the world.
