EY, a global professional services organisation providing advisory, assurance, tax and transaction services, has today joined our FlexCareers community!
EY promotes flexible working within their teams by allowing their people more control over where, when and how work gets done, from formal flexible arrangements to flexible start and finish times and work from home options. EY views collaboration as an important contributor to the success of flexibility, and encourages a team based approach, combined with proactive client consultation, in order to get better outcomes for flexibility.
While investing in many of the common areas people require flexibility, such as family support, study for exams or sporting commitments, EY believes that flexibility should be reason neutral, encouraging everyone to access it. A recent campaign – Flextober – challenged the whole organisation to try new ways of working flexibly – even those who have not previously considered it. We actively encourage parental leave use for men and seek to improve the transition back to work for everyone.EY’s approach to flexibility goes beyond work arrangements. Internal networks, inclusive policies, wellness programs, mentoring and sponsorship programs, new digital skills development and inclusive leadership training are all part of the way EY adds value for their increasingly diverse mix of people.
EY Oceania Diversity & Inclusiveness Leader, Heather Geary believes:
The world is being disrupted in a number of ways, quicker and with greater impact than we have seen before and we need to ensure the work environment we offer to our people continuously evolves as well.
Successful flexible working takes leadership, trust, practice and collaboration, but results in significantly higher engagement and productivity. By being able to offer our people the opportunities to work in a way that suits them today and into the future, we are able to attract and retain the highest performing teams.”
