Most Loved Workplace
The team at Dove Medical Press is thrilled that our parent company, Informa PLC, has been named a Most Loved Workplace by Best Practice Institute. We certainly couldn’t agree more, and there are many reasons to celebrate this global recognition.
Informa has succeeded in bringing all the company divisions together through fostering collaboration across teams by maintaining an open culture with relatively low hierarchy, through the use of technology, including a social intranet platform that makes connectivity easy wherever colleagues work from, and through making sure the office environments support team activity and interaction.
Informa has been working hard to create and maintain an open culture where there is ongoing conversation and engagement between colleagues from all levels, functions and backgrounds. Colleagues from all over the world are invited to participate in virtual town halls, office meetings, new joiner roundtables and ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions where no topic is off bounds. The diversity and inclusion program AllInforma is designed to support specific communities within our colleague base, providing forums for sharing views and inputting into company developments.
Informa encourages colleagues and managers to work together, through regular check-ins and objective setting meetings, to identify personal goals and create tailored plans that support individual development and achievement as well as team success. There are dedicated training programs for different functions, company-wide digital learning events and on-demand access to thousands of LinkedIn Learning courses.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic work challenges, Informa introduced balanced working, allowing colleagues to balance working in the office with working from home, making the most of time together for collaboration and coaching, and time at home for more focused tasks. Everyone has access to key equipment to work from home in comfort, while the office spaces are being reviewed to ensure they suit team and community activities.
The employees at Informa, including Dove Medical Press, have a positive vision for the future as the focus of the company is to expand the services portfolio to better serve the customers, investing in new opportunities for colleagues and being an ever more positive impact business, which is driving new benefits and opportunities for everyone.
