Our ideal world, is a world in which everyone has an equal chance to join us, the same opportunity to progress and be judged on their work and by their contribution to society and our company as a whole.
We all have a role to play in ensuring that our vision becomes a reality, not just within the companies within which we work, but also within our own networks and society as a whole. We are committed to keeping our procurement consultancy firm an inclusive environment, where everyone can be themselves, the sort of environment that our people deserve.
The Reconnect program offers mentoring and support for colleagues who are returning to work after periods of absence. This is most commonly used following paternity, maternity or shared parental leave, as well as returning after long term sickness.
Women in Proxima
Our Women in Procurement Proxima group is an open network where we can all share experiences and support each other’s personal and professional growth. Anyone can join the group, that meets both formally and informally and periodically showcases external speakers. This is one of many communities of interest in Proxima.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our D&I agenda is created and driven by our people, and sponsored at board level by our Chief People Officer. We have connected D&I teams on both sides of the Atlantic made up of volunteers who are passionate about the subject and Proxima. They meet regularly to share opinions, ideas and experiences and put in place the initiatives to ensure that we are “the company” that they want us to be.
We encourage our people to have a work and a home life. Our flexible working model is there to support and get the best from each other professionally and socially. With a “new normal” upon us, we also provide a range of tailored support for home working including financial support for equipment, training and social events.
In addition to optional benefits like health care and gym membership subsidies, we also have a Proxima wellbeing program offering support to all our employees. Our Intranet pages offer a range of resources and our “wellbeing champions” and Community of Interest provide support and arrange a variety of talks and events.
And much more
We pride ourselves on the culture at Proxima; professional, inclusive and fun. All our locations have a social team that arrange various physical and virtual events to build community amongst our people. These range from formal events and activities through to the informal “Meetup” app designed to connect Proxima staff on the road in nearby locations.
