At Partners in Performance, we pride ourselves on attracting, retaining and developing the very best talent around the world. With that, we recognise the importance of building a workplace that is welcoming, inclusive and promotes a sustainable lifestyle. We’re focused on four key areas to help our people unleash their potential, both in and out of work:
- Unleashing flexibility
Everyone’s needs are different when it comes to balancing work and personal life. Our goal is to ensure each person is given the resources and flexibility to make that balancing act work for them. In some regions this means offering additional
short-termunpaid leave, allowing a total of six or eight weeks of annual leave. Whether it’s taking a ‘career break’ to fulfillpersonal goals such as travelling the world or having the ability to work from home to spend more time with family, we work with each person to put in place the best solution for their lifestyle.
- Unleashing family
If expecting a new family member or serving as a primary caregiver, we want to make life as easy as possible. We do this through paid parental leave (up to 16 weeks for Primary Caregiver and 3 weeks for Secondary Caregiver) and offering ways to balance work and family commitments. In some situations, where partners and family members need to be together and there is a requirement to travel on engagement, we work with them on a case-by-case basis to find a solution that works.
- Unleashing diversity
Diversity isn’t just a buzzword - it’s vital to our culture, policies and systems. We recognise that diversity is imperative to a great work environment, and it’s part of what makes our people so interesting to work with. Our ethnic, gender, religious, political or sexual orientations may be different, but it’s these differences that allow us to bring new and unique ideas to the table. Whether it’s working with our senior women to support women in the
workplace,or reviewing our hiring practices, we are continuously striving to improve our initiatives in this area.
- Unleashing inclusiveness
As part of our extensive internal training, we strive to ensure every person is aware of what it means to be inclusive and how unconscious bias can affect those around them. We actively coach our team so they understand the importance of their words and actions being fair and
