Company values and culture
We value a healthy work life balance highly. Our team is proud of our supportive and inclusive culture, and we are committed to making Commonplace welcoming to everyone who joins us. As a platform built to power positive conversations, we encourage that in our working values too. This is why we offer all our employees flexibility and a full range of benefits too!
Taking care of our employees’ health and wellness will always be a top priority. Our team has access to a confidential line for counselling services that are available 24/7. All employees are also offered 20 days fully paid sick leave in addition to other leave and medical accommodation.
Flexible and remote working
Whether you’re staying in for the postman or calling in from another country, Commonplace is here to support you! Our daily start and end times are flexible and we set up all our employees with the tools they need to be comfortable and productive when working remotely.
Competitive annual leave
We provide 26 company holiday days in addition to 8 bank holidays and discretionary Christmas closure days each year.
We believe that our employees should be able to get direct benefits from the business they’re helping to shape, so after your probation you’ll receive comprehensive share options as the business grows.
Work from home fund
Need to set up a home office? Commonplace is here to help fund it. This could be a desk, office chair, screen, keyboard and mouse - or other essential equipment.
Employee recognition programme
We run weekly shoutouts so we can recognise our colleagues for their hard work, talent, and for embodying our core values. We also run Commonplace annual awards to recognise those going above and beyond. No work is ever unappreciated and we want everyone to know how valued they are as part of our team.
Equity, diversity & inclusion
Commonplace will always be committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment. We have a dedicated Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group to help us create and maintain a culture which values difference. We’re always listening and are completely open to any suggestions that could make us a more welcoming and accessible place for all our employees.
Cycle to work scheme
To promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution, the scheme allows Commonplace to loan cycles and cyclist safety equipment to employees as a tax free-benefit.
Employee referral scheme
We think you’ll love it here so much that you’ll want to tell your friends. Send someone our way for a role we’re hiring for, and we’ll give you up to £2000 if they join the company and stay with us for a set minimum period.
Regular employee gifts
We value our team members and what a better way to say ‘’Thank you!’’ than sending them regular appreciation gifts and surprises? You’ll have to join to find out what...
Personal development fund
In addition to our annual appraisals programme, we have dedicated a training budget to support our employees with their learning and development. If there are skills you think you need or a course you think will help, we’re here to facilitate.
We have plenty of social events all year round - our Summer and Christmas Parties are just a couple to mention.
We believe in clarity and transparency and all our workplace practices are clearly set out in our Staff handbook, which is reviewed annually or sooner if the need arises.
