Mobile working vital to talent management
(From fresh business thinking.com) — To deliver the best software we need the best people. We are headquartered in London but recognised very early on that not all the top professionals are clustered around the capital. At ChangeBASE we have some of the world’s leading experts in our field and we simply could not attract such a high calibre team if we forced people to work from one central office. So in order to recruit the right staff we offer employment to people all over the UK and the world – and we are only able to do this by introducing flexible processes to support remote workers. Although we are a relatively small company, we are recognised as having the leading products in our industry. Mobile working has allowed us to compete with larger organisations due to our ability to attract the very best professionals from every region we operate in. As a company that is growing rapidly we need our business to be agile. We plan to add over 50 new staff members this year and because we have put processes in place to support remote staff, it is easy to integrate new starters into the team regardless of their location. We have also benefited from increased efficiency. As employees are not tethered to their desks, they can operate in an environment which is more suited to their style of working. Productivity has increased significantly as our staff can work while travelling to meetings and engagements. Read more.
