Changing the way people move
The world needs rail
Put simply, the world is a better place when people choose not to fly and do everything they can to limit car journeys.
Air travel is a major source of pollution producing up to 10 times the emissions of rail (around 15% of total greenhouse gas emissions in the UK alone). And for all the welcome signs of greater adoption of electric vehicles, most cars on the road today are still reliant on fossil fuels.
Efficient mass transit systems are simply a better alternative. They have a smaller carbon footprint, reduce congestion and are often faster and cheaper than alternatives.
But there are challenges.
High fixed costs and ageing legacy infrastructure make it difficult to deliver the kind of digitally-enabled services today’s travellers expect. There is often insufficient data to allow customers to make the best travel decisions. And for agencies, rail is fragmented, lacks standards and is expensive to sell and manage.
We’re here to help with technology and solutions that make it easy for your customers to plan and buy travel and for you to give them the levels of service they deserve.
Ultimately, we want to give you the tools you need to increase revenue, reduce costs and delight travellers.
We are changing the way people move, by optimising every step of the traveller journey.
Flexible working approach
Our people are the heart of our business, which is why we put our culture at the centre of everything we do. We are Stronger Together. We are a hard working, forward thinking team that embraces a work life balance and has fun along the way. This goes hand in hand with empowering our team to decide their best working environment which includes flexibility around location - WFH/WFO/WFA options; flexible hours around start/finish times as well as time for family, hobbies and L&D; and also other great benefits such as our “Do Good” volunteer days.
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.
"SilverRail offer flexibility enabling 'Life Work balance' rather than 'Work Life Balance', being flexible around you as an employee rather than you being flexible around the company. SilverRail are very open and welcome to new ways of working. The door is always open for each individual employee to engage and discuss individual circumstances and ideas. I have no wish list, i feel empowered by SilverRail to manage my time around work and family. If i wasn't working for SilverRail today, i have to say that i believe i would have struggled for the same support based on some previous employee experiences."

It's great to see a multi-national company like SilverRail embracing flexible working regardless of geography. They have implemented unique approaches to their working environment, dependent on the location, to best suite the needs of the employees who may value flexibility in different ways. It's a flexible approach to flexible working and we love it!
