Work and Team Environment
Due to current restrictions/advisories from the government all of our teams are working completely remotely. While we miss working together in the office we also aim to keep every one of our employees and our community healthy and are committed to re-opening our collaborative spaces in a safe manner as soon as (and not before!) it is responsible to do so. Impact is still growing during this time and as we do we are adapting to the new challenges set before us by listening to our customers and our co-workers first at all times.
Once we return to office and client meetings, working on the Impact sales team offers the following:
- Flexible remote working policy - this is a full-time office based position; however, the sales team works together from the Central London office (near the Tottenham Ct Rd tube) on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The other three days can be remote, on site with clients, or in the office - wherever you work best!
- Responsible PTO policy - take the time off that you need. We are truly committed to a positive work-life balance, recognising that it is important to be happy and fulfilled in both
- Weekly team lunches and global company updates and other opportunities for collaboration and connection outside of stated job descriptions
- Pension scheme, health and dental insurance among other regular health and wellness (physical, mental, and financial) initiatives
- Regular community involvement opportunities - we believe that we can always find new ways to #createimpact around us - check out some of our recent activities that have won us recognition in the industry
- Setting up an ongoing scheme to donate food from our weekly lunches to a local soup kitchen. Our teams give up their own time to donate the food.
- Organising an ITea Party to teach elderly local residents about online security and troubleshoot their computing challenges
- Regularly donating blood, as a group, to our local blood bank, and encouraging Impact staff to give blood for the first time
- Planting trees and plants in our office
- The Impact Piggy Bank raises funds for the chosen charities. The idea is very simple with the Impact team putting unwanted change into the piggy bank and at the end of the year, we will break it open and whatever funds have been collected will be donated to a charity chosen by everyone collectively.
