PwC Isle of Man awards its entire workforce an extra day's holiday to thank them for their tremendous efforts during an unprecedented year for the business and therefore the office will be closed on Friday 11 June, for what would have been Senior Race Day.
Nicola Shepstone, Partner and Assurance Leader at PwC Isle of Man, said: ‘I would like to say a huge thank you to all of our people for their hard work and dedication over recent months. Our people truly are our greatest asset and continue to go above and beyond to support each other and meet the needs of their clients. Having experienced some of our busiest work periods during lockdown restrictions they have shown real commitment and resilience to the work they do.
‘As a purpose driven organisation, building trust and solving our clients’ problems is fundamental to what we do as a business, and we pride ourselves on the quality and integrity of the work we deliver. I’m delighted that due to everyone’s efforts and the ongoing investment in our technology, including virtual collaboration tools keeping us agile and flexible, we have worked with our clients to meet all of their deadlines, which is a significant accomplishment.’
PwC Isle of Man introduced their flexible working policy ‘Everyday Flexibility’ in 2019 to their workforce of over 110 people, encouraging staff to work smarter, whether that be taking better care of themselves, communicating more effectively, using technology, or being flexible in the way they work. This has since evolved to include blended working with the majority of the workforce being able to enjoy the flexibility of working from home up to 40% of their working week with up to 60% of their week in the office or at client sites. This change also aligns well with PwC’s Net Zero commitment.
Nichola Christison, Director and People Leader at PwC Isle of Man added: ‘We have long supported flexible working, and the pandemic has accelerated further changing working patterns. We are a people business and the virtual world is no substitute for human contact, but we know our people value the mix of working from home and in the office. Wellbeing is a top priority and we want our staff to feel empowered to decide the most effective working pattern for them, helping support greater work-life balance and giving them confidence to work flexibly.
‘Awarding our staff with an extra day's leave is a small gesture and token of appreciation of the work they have achieved and we hope they enjoy spending the additional time with family and friends exploring our wonderful Island.’
