We’re excited to announce that Tessian has been named one of the 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing.
So, what was the criteria? The Great Place to Work® culture experts analyzed thousands of employee surveys, assessing their holistic experiences of wellbeing at work through fundamental facets of employee wellbeing, like:
- Work-life balance
- Sense of fulfilment
- Job satisfaction
- Psychological safety
- Financial security
Here are just some examples of how we support wellbeing at Tessian.
Last year, we launched what we call “Refreshian Summer”. This sees everyone in the company down tools on specific days through-out the summer months to rest, recharge and enjoy the sunshine. You can learn more about the initiative here.
Mental health support
We wouldn’t have made it on this list if we didn’t take mental health seriously. And private healthcare in both the US and the UK and instant access to support via Spill help us take care of our people. With Spill, therapy sessions, mental health training, and feelings check-ins are just a click away.
Access to Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
It’s important employees feel like they can bring their whole selves to work, and ERGs, or staff community groups, help ensure all Tessians can connect with their peers in a safe space. Two examples? Plus, an LGBTQ+ network, and Tes-She-An, a space created to support Tessians who identify as women.
In-depth Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) training
Over the last 18 months, Tessian has been taking steps towards creating a more diverse and inclusive place to work. Why? Well, it’s the right thing to do. Diversity is infinite and everyone should feel valued for who they are and have the opportunity to bring this to work.
Hear why D&I is important to all of us below, and read more about how we created a strategy to maximize impact here.
“Choice First” working policy
Tessian’s ‘choice first’ working policy allows employees to choose where they work – remotely, in the office, or hybrid. Those working remotely get substantial budgets to set up their home offices, and those working in the office or hybrid have access to hubs in London, Boston, Austin, and San Francisco.
