Lendi's Flex-First Approach

Like many organisations around the world, 2020 has taken Lendi on quite a journey.

One thing that Lendi is sure of is that we are not going to come out of this year unchanged. Lendi has decided to offer a flexible working arrangement to all Lendi employees, not because we have to, but because we want to.

The response from the team was astounding in terms of how they valued the autonomy, freedom and lifestyle that flexible working offered.

As such, Lendi has taken on a Flex-First approach. 2020 has shown us that our people can and will always deliver groundbreaking, game-changing, market-leading work regardless of where they park their laptops each day. In fact, with more flexibility, we have seen better, stronger, and more sustained productivity and growth. Fundamentally, as long as we have a connection and a commitment to change the home loan market for all Aussies, then the Lendi business will continue to grow and thrive.

With this in mind, Lendi is committed to not just allowing our people to define their working space but encouraging them to find more balance, more creativity and more flexibility in how they apply ‘Flex First’.

How does Flex-First work?

Well basically you choose your base (where you will be spending 50% or more of your time working - home or office), and you then get started! We have ensured that individuals do not have to choose one or the other. If working from the office 1-2 days a fortnight suits you, that’s fine. If you would rather be at home, that’s also fine. We trust and support our people to find and do what is right for them and adjust it at any point if need be.

We will also be rolling out training to the whole business on how to best function in a flex-first world. We will be covering topics such as how to run successful virtual meetings, 1:1s, how to build rapport and relationships and how to set work-life balance boundaries. We are ensuring that team Lendi is equipped to flourish in this environment.

What does flex-first look like for some of our team?

For our fantastic Grad Manager, Vanessa, working from home was not an option. So, she decided to make the office her full-time base, which has made the world of difference to her productivity.

For Hank, one our inside Sales Manager, Flex-First has saved him four hours a day commuting!

For Tori, our Head of Client Solutions, it has meant that she can go back to university part-time.

Flex-first is not a one-size-fits-all philosophy. It is something that opens up possibilities and choice for our people, and it is up to each individual to decide what that looks like for them.

We are so excited to see what flex-first allows individuals and teams to accomplish as we move forward together.
