LUC – Finalist 2018, Best Small Employer Award

An agile working policy includes part-time working, compressed hours, flexible start and finish times, remote working and the option to buy extra holiday or request periods of unpaid leave. 

More than half of employees at the environmental consultancy work flexibly on a formal or frequent basis. Almost all work flexibly on an ad hoc or occasional basis. 

All jobs are now advertised as flexible and more women are applying, increasing from 45 per cent to 65 per cent of new recruits.
