We have been recognised as one of the top 10 most flexible micro-companies to work for, according to Flexa Careers.
Flexa considers micro-companies to be early-stage businesses but that is advanced on the flexibility front. Flexa’s mission is to get flexible companies the attention that they deserve.
Lara Squires said: “We are proud to be recognised as a flexible employer. When I started Consortium in 2013, flexible working was important to me. Having a good work-life balances benefits our team and ultimately our clients. We challenged the status quo long before the pandemic normalised flexible working, and it will continue to be an important part of our business model.”

What is flexible working?
Flexible working’ describes a type of working arrangement that gives a degree of flexibility on how long, where, when, and at what times employees work.
According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), before the pandemic, only around 5% of the workforce worked mainly from home. Since the start of the pandemic, remote working has grown at a rapid pace.
As businesses begin to return to the office, many firms are changing their approach to flexible working and offering employees different working approaches. CIPD believes there are lessons to be learned about flexible working, but the unusual nature of the situation should be borne in mind. Employers should remember that remote or home working is only one form of flexible working. There are many other types of arrangements.
Workplace flexibility and choice are slowly but surely becoming the norm. The movement has progressed so far in such a short space of time, and we believe Consortium really is a pioneer of flexible working.
