The flexible working day policy has been designed to help all employees achieve flexibility at the start and end of a working day, as required, without the need to make a permanent change to their working pattern.
All permanent employees who have successfully completed their probationary period are eligible to acquire shares in the company. The current options for purchasing Ecorys shares are as follows:
- Outright purchase
- Share incentive plan (SIP)
Employees participating in the SIP can contribute to the purchase of Ecorys shares by a tax efficient scheme which has the added benefit of attracting free shares paid for by the company.
Ecorys UK offers a Group Personal Pension Plan. All employees are automatically enrolled in the pension scheme from their start date of employment with the current company contribution equivalent to 5% of salary subject to a personal contribution of 3%. Through our pension scheme, all employees are automatically entitled to a death in service payment of four times their annual salary to their nominated beneficiaries.
Employees are eligible for private medical health care. Cover applies from the start of employment with the company.
