Open GI, a leading insurance software company, says it cares about the person behind the employee. It recognises that having a fulfilled employee who is supported to flourish is better for the individual, the team, the organisation and beyond.

The Worcestershire-based company employs 500 people in offices throughout the UK and Europe. Its staff are at the heart of Open GI's success and so they feature strongly in its mission to become the technology partner and employer of choice for the general insurance market.

Open GI is committed to creating a more rewarding environment. Monthly livestreams, lead by chief executive Simon Badley, focus on the common purpose, as well as exploring learnings and celebrating successes. Strong collaborative partnerships are created between colleagues and teams and they are encouraged through cross-functional working groups and social interactions.

As a result of staff feedback, the company has introduced more flexible working practices. The Open Ways of Working policy enables managers to work with staff to determine hybrid working policies that work most effectively in their respective teams. It also empowers teams and individuals to seek out the best way of interacting with their customer group, which has resulted in several new inter-departmental working groups forming.

Feedback shows that this increased choice and flexibility demonstrates that the company trusts staff to be accountable for their work, is considerate of their work-life balance and shows its commitment to becoming a more sustainable organisation.
