However, we understand that life’s about more than coming into work, doing your hours and getting paid at the end of the month.

As a progressive employer, we’re passionate about flexible working and we'll do everything we can to make sure you're happy and fulfilled inside and outside of work. 

That's why we’ve invested in pioneering initiatives such as Open Blend Method, which has replaced annual staff reviews.  This innovative technology platform acts as an enabler for open and honest conversations between managers and their teams, and places employee wellbeing at the centre of our business. Each Guidant employee now creates their own unique work/life blend which is made up of 8 key elements that reflect their life inside and outside of work. These individual blends form the basis of regular coaching-led discussions between managers and their team members. We’ve already seen some fantastic results since we introduced Open Blend, with increased levels of confidence, happiness and commitment to progress across our business.

When we first implemented Open Blend, some people were worried about having to reveal details of their private lives they might not want to discuss with their manager. However, Open Blend is about supporting you as an individual and you can therefore reveal as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. Now that Open Blend is fully embedded, our team have seen first-hand the difference it can make to individual lives and careers. Open Blend gives individuals a voice and a platform to request the support they specifically need to develop and progress.

    Client Solutions Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Guidant Global (London, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process was efficient and attentive. All email correspondence happened quickly and to the timescales the hiring manager promised. Everybody involved did a great job of keeping me updated on the progress of my application.

    I undertook a phone screening interview, 1:1 interview, and then an interview with two other members of the team which included presenting a task which formed part of the process. This was a worthwhile exercise which provided a great opportunity to demonstrate my skills in practice but also learn more about the company itself.

    The professional, yet friendly approach to the hiring process was perfectly representative of the way Guidant operates on a daily basis right across the business.
