Given the many challenges presented over the last 12 months, it’s extremely satisfying to have retained our status and I couldn’t be prouder of this achievement. Being certified as a Top Employer showcases our dedication to a better world of work, which has been exhibited through our excellent HR policies and people practices.
It’s been a year like no other, and the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular, has been a real test of our business resilience. Hugely challenging for many individuals. I’m really proud of the support we have put in place, helping our people to reach their full potential and remaining true to our values and purpose.
We have been determined to ensure that the diverse needs within our workforce are accommodated. Our ability to exercise progressive policies, such as greater flexibility and enhanced wellbeing offerings, has been essential for our people to adapt to a very different way of working successfully. We’ve provided a wide range of resources, including employee assistance programmes, mindfulness training and collaborative technology tooling, to ensure that our people have the relevant support to stay mentally well.
But it is our people that have made this recognition possible. Despite our new working environments, they have been instrumental in ensuring our culture continues to thrive. I have heard so many great examples of how teams stay connected and support each other – from video walks and online games to competitions and virtual cocktail hours.
This award demonstrates that we are clearly on the right path, but we won’t stop here. We’re always looking for new ways to do things and to improve as a business. By listening to our people and actively encouraging new ideas, we can continue to develop Experian as a great place to work.
