Becca

Quality Assessor

Becca works as a Quality Assessor at Ascensos. Her day typically involves a combination of quality analysis, reporting and stakeholder feedback. For Becca working from home has some clear advantages.

“I 100% love working from home! It suits my personal circumstances and means I can spend more quality time with my family. I also have the added luxury of spending my usual 90-minute round-journey commute on other activities. So, replacing my daily bus journey with a morning Yoga session, evening walk or even just spending time with my Dad is a bonus for me.

We’ve had new colleagues joining the Quality Team recently, and although I’m not a fan of too many Zoom calls, the opportunity to have the clarity of regular 1-2-1 meetings, makes it easier to build good working relationships and receive support whenever I need it.

I do find I can concentrate on my daily tasks better, and while I miss seeing all my friends and colleagues from our Motherwell site, I look forward to weekly ‘lunch and laugh’ Zoom sessions with my immediate team”.

Even before COVID-19 disrupted the planet forcing remote working to become the new norm; at Ascensos, we have always actively supported a mixture of office-based and cross-site working, along with the flexibility to work remotely, where the role supported the requirement to do so.

Our rapid shift to ‘work from home’ (WFH) earlier this year required the adoption of a digital first, remote-working approach to our company-wide operations.

And with the well-being and safety of our colleagues, their families and our communities key, remote working will remain our default position in the current COVID-19 landscape, for those who can do so.

However, now that home working is no longer that rare unicorn of workforce arrangements, for some roles it will remain a temporary solution, but for others it presents an opportunity to contribute to a new kind of workplace, one where we continue our commitment to embrace diversity and inclusion.

For #theAteam and our clients, it brings the opportunity to find the right talent, without location being a significant factor. For new colleagues and team members, who enjoy the WFH benefits, it presents the option to make their flexible work arrangement more permanent.

When you apply to join #theAteam, you’ll be taken to our online, interactive recruitment platform, where your preference for remote working will be noted during the application process.

Matthew

Digital Transformation Manager

Previously, a key member of our Client Success Team, Matthew has recently been promoted to Digital Transformation Manager within our Technology Unit.

Having recently celebrated his 5-year tenure with Ascensos, working from home for Matthew has been a new experience. And one which required him to proactively embrace a more flexible approach to his working day.

“I am definitely more productive working from home and find it easier to complete tasks that require a great deal of attention. Initially, I found it difficult to switch off and felt a blurring of the boundary between my work life balance, which saw me continuing to work when I normally would’ve been commuting.

After taking onboard advice from my peers, I quickly learned to adapt to ‘the new norm’ and have since created a dedicated home working environment, to ensure I can close the door on my day at work. It does require an aspect of discipline, but it’s also important to take breaks and inject your day with some sociability. So now I factor in a mid-afternoon walk during my lunch, for some off-screen time and arrange video coffee break ‘chats’ to keep connected with my colleagues”.
