Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

My work is an important part of my life

At QBE the company takes a flexible approach to accommodating requests for time off work, in particular supporting those whose requests are on medical grounds and time off in lieu is offered at manager's discretion. QBE is undertaking a long-term strategy alignment and brand programme which began in 2008 when it embarked on an inside-out approach that saw all UK and European employees attend The Big Difference workshops. The workshops equipped QBE people with the knowledge of who QBE is, where it has come from and where it is going. This continued with The Big Goal where employees were asked to give feedback on how QBE could improve the experiences its key stakeholders have of QBE. This resulted in a number of key initiatives, for example, buying and selling of holiday entitlement.
