Getting Work/Life Balance Right

We know that the success of our product, Flexi-Grant, is down to our team – quite simply, we couldn’t do it without their hard work, creativity, and enthusiasm.

However, in order for our team to be at their best and help us develop our market-leading software, we also have a responsibility to help them as much as possible to achieve a great work/life balance.

We’ve done this in a number of ways, including:

  • A standard 35-hour week – you don’t expect you to work a minute more…unless you want to
  • Flexible working hours – come and go as you please any time before 10am and any time after 4pm
  • Flexi-Time – if you happen to clock up any overtime at any point, you can take up to 1 day a month
  • Work from home / remote working options

We believe in looking after our team, the happier they are, the more productive they are, and the more innovations we can make in our mission to empower grant-giving organisations.

That said, we’re always looking for ways to improve and iterate on our approach to work/life balance – so what have you seen work well at other organisations?
