Agile working introduced at Zenith to ‘boost’ productivity

Zenith has offered agile working to all 1,000 staff at the leasing company in an effort to boost wellbeing and productivity.

Employees will be able to decide where and when they work by balancing the requirements of customers, the team, and personal needs.

Stuart Price (pictured), chief people officer at Zenith, said: “We know in our market that our agility and adaptability help us to develop and stay ahead of the competition.

“The ability to out-think and out-perform and to provide the best possible service to our customers is vital. Our Agile Working Policy applies this spirit to how, when and where we work at Zenith, affording greater flexibility and agility to everyone whose role can work flexibly around our customer’s and team’s needs.

“We have moved quickly to give colleagues certainty and help to attract new talent to Zenith. Our approach is truly agile and allows colleagues to choose where they work rather than allocating certain days of the week.”

Each team will determine how the agile policy can be applied within their business area to enable maximum flexibility to as many staff members as possible, it said.

Zenith was advancing plans for flexible working before the pandemic, with growing numbers choosing to blend working from home and the office.

The model has been advanced over the past 18 months as the benefits to colleagues and customers became clear, it said.

Price concluded: “We are training leaders to help them with the new agile approach and recognise that these changes aren’t easy.

“Our middle and senior leaders will make this a success because it’s a culture rather than a process.

“Zenith believes that there are measurable benefits of both office and remote or home working. In a nutshell, we see agile as bringing the best of the office with the best of working elsewhere together.”
