We believe flexible working can increase staff motivation, promote work-life balance, reduce employee stress, and improve performance and productivity. We offer a variety of flexible work options including part-time and flex-time working, job sharing, home working, time off to care for children or other family members, and career breaks.
We offer employee assistance programmes, including in the UK a free confidential helpline and counselling agency with a number of services, including personal, legal, financial, tax, and relationship advice. The service operates 24 hours a day throughout the year and is available to all employees and their immediate families.
We recognise good performance financially through mechanisms like bonuses and non financially through awards programmes, like the RBI Achievement Awards, among other means. In 2007, LexisNexis Legal & Professional created the Louis F. Duffy Scholarship in association with the International Bar Association (IBA) to honour a long-serving employee, who joined Martindale-Hubbell Legal Publishing Company in 1956, and who has made a lasting contribution to the legal profession. $40,000 in scholarships have been awarded to lawyers from developing countries to enable their participation in the IBA Distance Learning Program.
After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, in which two Reed Elsevier employees lost their lives, we established a fund in their names – the Jeffrey P Mladenik and Andrew Curry-Green Memorial Scholarship. In 2011, we awarded grants to Juho Lee, a biology student at University of Chicago, the son of Jaebin Lee, a Senior Software Quality Engineer for LexisNexis Global Solutions Development based in Dayton, Ohio, and Sriram Pendyala, a chemistry student at Harvard University, son of Mahesh Pendyala, a LexisNexis home-based Consulting Solutions Engineer from Sacramento.
In 2011, RBI’s totaljobs.com was once again named one of the 50 Best Workplaces in the UK by the Great Place to Work Institute, and was named second best workplace for work-life balance.
In 2011, LexisNexis UK was awarded an Investors in People certification by the British government.
