About Informa


What is it like to work for Informa

My Manager
My Manager
Launched in 2013, Informa Group's academic publishing business, Taylor & Francis, has put in place a Global Development Programme for all managers. Based on individual capability assessments, managers received tailored training on areas such as coaching, recruitment, managing under performance and development.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
In 2013, Informa became more focused on the issue of mental health in the workplace and all their UK HR directors have now received Mental Health in the Workplace Training. As one in four British adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year, Informa believe this is a valuable focus for them and also becomes a business issue. Flexible working is also supported around the Group and they have had a flexible working policy in place since 2006.  Between 2012 and 2013, the proportion of Informa employees working part time increased from 7.5% to 8.6%.  In a 2012 survey on flexible working, out of 141 respondents, 112 gave Informa a top rating of creating work/life balance and 84% said they couldn’t continue working without the flexible working policy.
