’We offer managed flexibility to all staff – people can grow, develop and achieve their own work/life balance’
Pollard Thomas Edwards is proud to be an exemplar of good practice and to have a gender-balanced working environment. The Women in Architecture campaign is a reminder that we have a wonderfully unique situation, and something that should be supported and encouraged throughout the profession.
Our approach is to make sure everybody benefits from equality in the workplace: a balanced working environment is good for everybody and makes smart business sense. Everyone in our office appreciates the culture that we have and the part that gender balance and diversity plays in that.
One of the hardest things for women in particular is to have both a career and a family. We offer managed flexibility to all staff, here people can grow and develop and achieve their own work/life balance. We encourage new mums to come back to work and help and support them to reclaim their careers.
Expect equal pay and promotion: we are thorough in our appraisal process and ensure that pay and promotion are commensurate with skills and performance.
Set a good example: we aim to be visible as women in the profession. That’s the best encouragement we can give.
