Event news – Penguin HR riding high with bike plan

Penguin has introduced bikes for work in response to many staff wanting to cycle to the firm’s central London office. It has also brought in a home computing initiative. Speaking at a session entitled ‘How to achieve a sustainable work-life balance’, Susan Taylor, group HR director, said 75% of Penguin’s 1,000 staff are female and 20% of staff work part-time and 80% flexible hours. Penguin already offers childcare vouchers.
