What are we doing?

We are running a pilot of all Interlink staff finishing their working week at lunchtime every Friday.

There is an out-of-hours process available for urgent client requirements so as to ensure our normal level of service is not impacted by this change.

 

Why are we doing it?

Our values exemplify how we operate as an employer as much as how we do business.

Drive –

At Interlink we strive to deliver the best for our clients, and we want to be the best place to work, with a team that enjoys a healthy work-life balance.

Passion –

We aim to provide an environment that nurtures and empowers our employees, which in turn helps us to give great service to clients.

Brave –

We pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking company and have taken inspiration to make this change from successful trials from visionary companies. We truly believe we can achieve our ambitious goals as well as dedicating ourselves to the wellbeing of our staff.

Integrity –

In addition to the plethora of wellness-related benefits already at Interlink, we are giving staff this valuable time back to use however they would most benefit – whether that be to attend that yoga class they wouldn’t usually have time for, to focus on a passion or hobby, or just simply to see family and friends more often.

 

Why only a pilot?

As much as company culture and staff wellbeing is a priority for us, client service is an absolute must. We want to ensure our high level of service doesn’t drop as a result of this change, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on that for a 3 month trial from March – May.

 

When will we decide if it’s here to stay?

We have planned review points towards the end of May and will communicate to all via email, social media and our website if we decide to make it a permanent policy.

 

I am a client – what happens if I need support on a Friday afternoon?

We have set up a dedicated inbox for anything urgent which will be monitored by senior management so that your request can be picked up with the focus it requires. Email your request to urgent@interlinklg.co.uk and we’ll be on it!

We can’t wait to share the results with you!
