Hybrid working and redesigned offices to woo new recruits at Allstate NI

By David Elliott

US insurance giant Allstate is drawing on a hybrid working policy and refurbished offices in an effort to boost recruitment to fill 100 positions.

Allstate NI, which said it is Northern Ireland’s largest IT employer, is filling a range of roles across the business including in software development, cybersecurity, product management, data science, analytics, and full stack development and is hosting a recruitment event today (Thursday).

The company said it has designated all employees as hybrid and made flexible hours available to everyone, allowing staff to work remotely or in the office at any time.

It said that 95% of its staff voted for more flexibility and most have opted not to take on a set schedule, instead working with their line manager to find a pattern that suits their lifestyle and the needs of the business. All staff can also request a flexible working pattern such as part-time hours, condensed hours or staggered hours from day one of their employment.

“Productivity can be achieved anywhere, and greater flexibility in how, when and where we work is an important principle,” Vice President and Managing Director of Allstate NI John Healy, said. “We are empowering every employee to design a working pattern that suits their needs and the requirements of their team while promoting a healthy work-life balance.”

“With 100 roles currently on offer, we are thrilled to have opened new modern and dynamic workspaces that will foster more collaboration, innovation and socialisation when employees are in the office. This is an exciting time for Allstate NI, and we hope to see many more individuals join us in this new phase.”
