Tandberg – Apparently a Nice Place to Work

Video conferencing vendor Tandberg has been listed in The Sunday Times Best Companies To Work For in the UK for the second year in succession, appearing at 49 on the list.

Tandberg’s recognition of the importance of employee work/life balance was a key factor in gaining its ranking, with its employees declaring that they were happy working for an organisation that allowed their work to integrate seamlessly into their busy lives.

Simon Egan, Vice President of Northern Europe for Tandberg, commented: “It’s great to see TANDBERG being recognised and rewarded for it s achievements over the past year. We were delighted to be placed in the top 15% in the Sunday Times Best Companies rankings in 2007, but to move up to the top 10% is a fantastic achievement, especially considering the huge increase in applications this year.

“We have put a number of new measures in place this year to further improve our employees’ working environment, and it’s great to have our efforts rewarded with such a high ranking in such a prestigious programme.”

All 77 of the company’s UK employees have the option of working from home and 45 team members actively do this on a regular basis. All employees are provided with mobile phones, paid broadband, laptops and videoconferencing units to encourage easy home working, and are also offered work/ lifestyle balance courses. Since all employees are trusted to manage their own working hours, this enables home and family commitments to be managed more easily.
