“I’ve leveraged different types of Flex in my different roles at Lion (part-time, flex hours, flex days). Now I work from home on Fridays which gives me some planning and thinking time as well as being able to pick my kids up from school – a very special part of the week.”
Lion CFO, Steph Nixon
Every day, close to 7,000 people work, create, innovate and grow at Lion and our people are supported, encouraged and empowered to be the best they can be. We believe empowering people is key to their success – and our business – and flexibility is a critical part that. Our flexibility policy – LionFlex – has been around for over 10 years. It aims to enable agile & innovative teams by trusting people with the freedom to choose where, when or how they can best achieve in their role. With four different types of flexibility, we’re confident we can work together in a way that suits our people.
Talent Acquisition & Onboarding Director for Lion, Holly Maginness says “For people to be their best at work they need to be able bring their whole self to work, I see Lion flex as a key enabler to drive this for our people.”
