UGL is a progressive company
We listen to what our employees have to say.
We want our employees to have a fulfilling career while at the same time remaining fully engaged with their personal lives.
UGL’s vision and strategy can only be achieved if our people feel that our company values their contribution and respects other responsibilities and roles in their lives. We are committed to providing an environment where our people feel engaged and valued.
Balancing work and home life can sometimes be a challenge. All of us strive to find the right balance between our careers and personal life. We believe that good health, happiness and a sense of achievement are essential for managing work and life responsibilities effectively.
Helping our people realise their full potential involves giving them a sense of wellbeing and offering support when they need it. It’s all about feeling comfortable and secure.
We also encourage flexibility and diversity in the workplace through practices that recognise and respond to our people’s needs at different stages of their lives.
Whether it is a permanent or one-time arrangement, options exist to help our people during different stages of their lives.
Your personal life
Juggling the demands of your life outside work and your career ambitions can be difficult. As a way of helping balance the two, we give employees the chance to work flexibly through schemes such as part-time hours and job share, as well as career breaks and extended maternity leave.
Whatever your reason, we'll do everything we can to find a solution that suits you at the same time as meeting the requirements of the company.
The way we work
There are other, less obvious areas where we encourage a better quality of life for our employees.
Travelling to meetings costs money, impacts the environment and takes people away from their homes. That's why we have introduced effective ways for teams to communicate and share information remotely. These include virtual meetings, videophones and online collaboration environments. We also have new-generation video-conferencing that's so realistic it's like meeting face-to-face.
