Finastra: Improving employee wellbeing through 'open working'

by HRD Connect | Report

As organisations have grown to understand in recent times, employee wellbeing is arguably the number one business priority right now. When the COVID-19 restrictions were first put in place, Finastra’s Open Working programme was developed and rolled out globally to support professionals under pressure, to give employees free choice in how (or even if) they return to the office. The company has pledged to prioritise job preservation and be fully transparent about new measures and initiatives. That said, the mass working from home experiment of the past year has proven that organisations can continue outside of the office. Finastra in particular has seen some very positive outcomes, namely in their engagement scores (monthly eNPS engagement pulse) and comments, and has committed to continue supporting the productivity and wellness of their teams.

In this case study, Sharon Doherty, chief people and places officer, Finastra, outlines how her firm has endeavoured to safeguard employee wellbeing through tumultuous times.
