Our People Promise

Our People Promise outlines some concrete, straightforward principles about how we will operate as a company. It underpins a reciprocal promise between the business and our people.

At Scott Logic, we’re a people-focused and purpose-driven organisation, motivated by more than profit. We want to play our part in creating opportunity and generating sustainable prosperity in the wider community and the wider world. We have ambitious growth plans, and we want to ensure that the fundamentals of Scott Logic remain as we grow. That’s what our People Promise is all about.

The six principles make explicit a set of cultural beliefs within the Scott Logic community about the way we want to work here. They build on our Core Values of Excellence, Passion, Collaboration, Respect and Professionalism. The principles hold us true to ourselves and we use them all the time to make – and sometimes challenge – business and consultancy decisions.

The principles are not a set of hard-and-fast rules about clear-cut circumstances. They are a set of shared commitments within the Scott Logic community and we all strive to be pragmatic and reasonable in their interpretation and application. In this way, we are able to maintain a healthy, stable business that works for our people, our company and our clients.

The six principles of our People Promise are below:

How the People Promise shapes Scott Logic

We use the People Promise every day to make – and sometimes challenge – business and consultancy decisions. Here are just a few examples of initiatives informed by our People Promise.

Hybrid working

Our hybrid working approach realises the potential of being productive from home along with the benefits of working in shared team environments and spending time with our clients. We take a transparent approach company-wide, such as our categories of hybrid working.

Family leave

We have enhanced our family leave policies to cover leave for IVF, adoption and surrogacy, and we've extended the total time you can take off at full pay for maternity leave (26 weeks) and paternity leave (4 weeks).

Individual Development Budget

Every staff member is now allotted an Individual Development Budget of up to £1,000 and two development days a year to be invested in your chosen area of development.

Mental Health Manifesto

Our new Mental Health manifesto outlines Scott Logic’s perspective and intent with regard to our support for our people’s mental health. It includes commitments to raise awareness of mental health issues and treat them with the same level of focus as physical health.
