About Egress Software Technologies Limited


What is it like to work for Egress Software Technologies Limited

My Manager
My Manager
All line managers in Egress undergo regular one to one mentoring by the HR Manager. These sessions complement the ‘on the job’ coaching sessions in Performance Management, Recruitment and Retention. Additionally, all managers receive monthly direct feedback from their function’s C-level executive, as they are a small company, the flat management structure allows them to do this with high frequency. The  business is growing fast and as such, opportunities for personal growth – particularly at the mid-manager level – are constantly arising. They  do not recruit mid-managers from outside the business, preferring to promote from within and give existing team members the chance to start their managerial careers in a familiar environment.
My Team
My Team
Whilst some of the company employees have fixed desks, a significant number are encouraged to sit where they like in the office - which is primarily an open plan design with a hot desking infrastructure. For example, rather than having the sales and technical services teams sit in defined spaces, offering them the flexibility to sit next to peers who are working on the same projects means employees collaborate better and produce better results for the business and their customers. In the software development teams – they have recently implemented a version of Scrum (an iterative agile method for managing product development). This has improved communication and resulted in significant improvements to the development process and the quality of the software produced, whilst reducing the time required to produce a customer ready version of the software.

Company Values are introduced to  new recruits in the first part of their induction session. It is effectively the first thing that is put in front of them on their first day with the business. The quarterly All Stars Awards recognise the employees who live and breathe our values. This initiative was launched 12 months ago and has so far received lots of positive feedback. Not only do the awards encourage staff to demonstrate behaviour and achievements aligned to the company values, but also represent a fantastic way of recognising outstanding performance across the business.
