At AGL, we offer flexible work to all our people. It is an essential ingredient in our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we know that it can be the difference when it comes to attracting and engaging diverse talent. It is something that our MD and CEO Andy Vesey, as a member of the Male Champions of Change, is personally committed to.
We hear a great deal of feedback from people joining AGL that our commitment to flexible work – and the fact that people really do work flexibly – is one of the most highly valued benefits of working with us.
“Flexible working is just the way we do things at AGL. It’s not the hours you spend at your desk, but the work you do and how you do it that matters,” says Andy.
“I encourage everybody at AGL to ‘Leave Loud and Proud’. This means being proud of the commitments you have and feeling safe to leave earlier when you need to, or not working certain days, or whatever your arrangement is.
“Our leaders support flexible work and understand how beneficial it is to the business.
“Talented people come from all walks of life and so too do their commitments outside of work; they might be parents, have other caring responsibilities, they might study part-time, have important cultural events or be training for the next marathon. We know that if people feel they aren’t compromising on what they care about, they can be focused at work and full of energy.”
