LV= General Insurance offer multiple flexible working patterns, allowing employees to fit around work around their' lives and priorities. LV= GI also offer patterns such as annualised hours and term-time working, which very few companies offer.
What we love about LV= General Insurance:
💡LV= understand that flexible working shouldn't just be available for parents, allowing all individuals to request it.
💡LV= GI strive for a healthy work-life balance for their employees through their multiple working patterns
What is worth checking with LV= General Insurance:
💡 While LV= General Insurance aims to offer flexible working for all employees, it is dependent on whether it is right for their customers and business.
💡Flexibility will differ by role, for example some call-centre staff have the options of 'self-rostering / shift swapping', whereas this may not be available for head office employees.
LV= GI recognises the importance of helping employees balance their work and home
life. We offer flexible arrangements that
let our people balance work with other priorities, including parental and other caring responsibilities, life-long learning, charity work, leisure activities and other interests.
To reflect this, anyone can request to work flexibly for any reason. Our policy applies to all employees regardless of band, whether they work full-time, part-time, or on a fixed- term basis and whether they have caring responsibilities for children or adults.
