WorkYourWay Insider View & Score

Barclays strive to have an inclusive organisation and work environment for its employees. The organisation have introduced an initiative called 'dynamic working', which improves inclusivity in the workplace, emphasising how you work rather than how many hours are spent in the office. Barclays recognises the positive impact that agile working can have on productivity and engagement of their employees.

What we love about Barclays:

💡The dynamic working initiative empowers colleagues to control their schedules and workload. 

💡 Barclays recognise that flexible working isn't just for parents and carers, and instead is inclusive for all individuals regardless of their needs and lifestyle.

💡 Barclays offered its 35,000 staff a £1,200 pay raise to help with the cost-of-living crisis, bringing forward an annual pay review that would have taken place in March 2023.
