Alexander Mann Solutions is creating more opportunities for flexible working, investing in remote-working technology and enhancing its communications with employees.
The enhanced benefits are part of the talent management firm’s focus on employee wellbeing and helping its staff to develop healthy, balanced lifestyles.
It has invested in Lync software so that employees can log in anytime, anywhere, and has refined its home-working policy to encourage full work-life balance flexibility.
Following employee feedback, it is also developing its half-yearly employee magazine, The Point, presenting this as an interactive PDF with a more user-friendly layout.
Alexander Mann Solutions also keeps in close contact with its employees by sharing regular online presentations, which it has made more interactive, with employees being offered the opportunity to submit questions in advance.
The orgaisation is also communicating its employee assistance programme (EAP) in 2013 to ensure staff are aware of the benefit. It has had the EAP in place since 2008, which offers confidential help and advice to employees on all aspects of health, nutrition and diet, fitness and work-life balance.
David Health, chief people officer at Alexander Mann Solutions, said: “Happy, engaged employees are more productive, deliver optimum results for clients and are more likely to stay with the organisation for longer, even acting as brand ambassadors.
“As a provider of talent management consultancy, we know that good practice starts at home. Optimising our own employee engagement programme allows us to deliver the best possible advice to clients on creating and honing their own engagement strategies.”
