Life should be more than just coming into work, doing your hours and getting paid at the end of the month.

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

As a progressive employer, we believe whole-heartedly in flexible working and we will do everything we can to make sure you are happy and fulfilled inside and outside of work.

That is why we have invested in pioneering initiatives such as the 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 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.
