Our employees don’t just benefit from working with an awesome team, their salary and pension. We’ve talked and worked out the benefits that mean the most to us.
We don’t pay this lip service. Two Thirds of our leadership team work part time. We trust our team to work around their other commitments, whether that be school drop offs, volunteering or wellbeing. It’s something we’re passionate about. We love to see people in the office, but also give people the benefit of working from home.
This is a recent benefit we’ve signed up to – it’s brilliant! Dental, GP, Opticians, Physio, Specialists, Mental Health Sessions, Free Amazon Prime, Cinema tickets, Coffees, 50% Gym discounts. The list goes on and on – the best thing about Vitality is that its encouraging us all to get up and move more.
Attractive Maternity Policy
We love it when our wider Geolytix family grows and want to support our colleagues during and on the return. 13 weeks full pay and a return to work bonus of 6 weeks for employees with 2 years service.
Attractive Paternity Policy
We’ve had quite a few new fathers recently! They’ve enjoyed our enhanced paternity policy of 2 weeks full pay plus either a further 7 weeks at 50% pay or further 3.5 weeks full pay.
Flexible Bank Holidays and unpaid leave
Sometimes it fits in with our lives to work a bank holiday – a perfect opportunity to get our head down when it’s busy. Geolytix employees can do this and take the holiday at another time. The team can top up their time off with unpaid leave and sabbaticals.
Cycle to work Scheme / Tuskerdirect Car Scheme
We’re thrilled that so may of our employees have taken advantage of the Cycle to Work Scheme, where Geolytix loan the money to buy a bike and the employee pays back monthly pre-tax! We’ve also partnered with Tuskerdirect who incentivise the purchase of electric and hybrid cars.
Opportunity to Travel Abroad
We have employees in China, Japan, Australia, South Africa, France, Italy and Poland – they love to have visitors. We also work on many projects where there is an opportunity to visit countries to understand the retail landscape.
Bonus based on Performance
We’ve paid out fantastic double digit bonus’s for the last 10 years, based on how well Geolytix performs. We tend to pro rata these for employees who haven’t been with us a year so they don’t miss out.
Become a Geolytix Shareholder
After employees have been with us a year, they can enter our long term incentive plan. At the end of 3 years if we hit the targets then they will be awarded Geolytix shares and own part of the company – we offer this every year to everyone so shares will build up for our old timers. As a smaller company this is something we’re proud we’re able to offer.
“Vitality is great! Not only does it cover the important stuff like opticians and dental costs as standard (I got my latest pair of glasses covered through the membership), but there are great extras that can be earned. My Hot Chocolate intake has definitely increased, due to the weekly free drink from Caffe Nero, achieved through the exercise I now do with my discounted gym membership” - Dan Dungate, Head of Data Science
