Life’s about more than coming into work, doing your hours and getting paid at the end of the month

Working at Guidant, you get to make a difference to the world’s leading companies. You're also well rewarded by way of salary and benefits. But we understand that your working life’s about so much more.

As a progressive employer, we’re passionate about flexible working and we'll do everything we can to make sure you're happy and fulfilled inside and outside of work.

That's why we’ve invested in pioneering initiatives such as Open Blend Method, which has replaced annual staff reviews. This innovative technology platform acts as an enabler for open and honest conversations between managers and their teams, placing employee wellbeing at the centre of our business.

Each Guidant Group employee creates their own unique work/life blend, which is made up of eight key elements that reflect their life inside and outside of work. These individual blends form the basis of regular coaching-led discussions between managers and their team members. We’ve already seen some fantastic results since we introduced Open Blend, with increased levels of confidence, happiness and commitment to progress across our business.

Open Blend is about supporting you as an individual, so you can reveal as much or as little as feels comfortable. Now that Open Blend is fully embedded, our team have seen first-hand the difference it can make to individual lives and careers. Open Blend gives individuals a voice and a platform to request the support they specifically need to develop and progress.
