About Wolters Kluwer UK


What is it like to work for Wolters Kluwer UK

Leadership
Leadership
The Executive and Senior Management Team have actively improved communication methods to engage employees with the Company’s mission and values. Cathy Wolfe, CEO, and the senior managers deliver regular road shows at the two main head office sites in the UK. At these they give a business update on the different businesses, outline the main priorities for the present and future and offer employees the opportunity to ask questions to the Executive and Senior Management Team. In addition to these employee road shows the organisation has developed monthly newsletters and blogs from senior managers to keep employees up to date with business activity. These newsletters are also used for more informal updates such as introduction to new starters in the business, announcement or marriages or births and so forth. There has also been the recent addition of social media communication tools. Yammer has proven to be a successful way of engaging employees to have informal business conversations with colleagues from across the business. The Senior Management Team proactively encourages these online conversations.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
As well as providing free fruit and reduced cost gym memberships to employees, Wolters Kluwer has launched 'My Benefits'; a flexible benefits programme designed to fit in with employee's lifestyles. Covering Health & Wellbeing, the programme includes Dental Insurance, Health Assessments, Private Medical Insurance, a Medical Cash Plan and a cycle to work scheme. They also provide a free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). This service offers expert advice, information, specialist counselling and support for employees and their immediate family. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can provide wide ranging information and guidance on topics such as buying a new home, having children, relationships, managing money, retirement personal and family crisis and staying healthy to name but a few.

Open to all employees the Values Award scheme acknowledges and rewards employees who excel at displaying the values of Agile, Brave and Clear in their day to day work. Employees can also be recognised for cost-saving or revenue generating initiatives as part of this award scheme and the amount of the award will be reflected by the impact of their suggestion/ideas. Nominations can happen throughout the year and may be made by any employee or manager and successful nominations can result in the employee receiving an award of up to £1000. This scheme has proven successful in motivating employees to go above and beyond what would normally be expected of them in the course of their daily work. In addition to these, they also hold an Annual Achievers Awards where, on an annual basis they have a company-wide opportunity for everyone to nominate their colleagues for an achievement award based on their UK values.
