Revolut offers two paid wellbeing days to employees to acknowledge their hard work over the last year
Corporate · 3 June 2021
- Initiative will allow for two additional days off, paid by the company
- Employees will be able to take them until November 30th
London, 3 June 2021
Revolut, the global financial platform with over 15 million customers worldwide is giving its over 2,200 employees two additional days off as an acknowledgement of their hard work during the challenging last year. The company will enable all employees to take the days as time for themselves or to reconnect with friends and family where possible.
These additional paid days can be used by all employees - including those serving their notice or who are still in their probation period - any time before November 30, 2021.
Wellbeing Days are part of a larger project intended to progress Revolut’s goal of creating the best working environment for its global workforce.
Nik Storonsky, Revolut’s CEO, said: “Our employees are what makes this company stand out. They are the drivers of our success, and we are always looking for new ways to recognise the hard work and dedication they show every single day. All organisations have had a very challenging year but our teams adapted really well to remote work, achieving goals and delivering amazing products that continue to make our customers' lives easier. It is crucial to recharge and have some down time, and I will be making use of these two days myself.”
Earlier this year, Revolut confirmed its move towards permanent flexible working, supported by an innovative Rev Lab real estate strategy to repurpose all its offices as flexible collaborative spaces. In response to employees’ preferences, Revolut is enabling the vast majority of its 2,200+ employees to choose when and how often they would like to work from home or visit the workplace. More recently, it also announced that it will allow its employees to work from abroad up to 60 days a year, the latest step in its commitment to agile working. The temporary working abroad policy was launched to enable the company’s widely international workforce’s requests to visit families more often and/or for longer periods. As Revolut embraces the cultural diversity of its staff, the company wanted to enable employees to spend extended quality time overseas if they wished to do so. The company has also recently launched RevoLoot - an internal Employee Recognition Programme, designed to acknowledge and celebrate employees’ important life events or professional achievements.
These initiatives are part of a wider global program of work focusing on evolving culture and engagement at Revolut. Led by the People team, the different projects are focused on multiple areas across the business that impact Revoluters’ daily lives such as recognition, learning and development and diversity and inclusion.
We are building the world’s first truly global financial superapp. In 2015, Revolut launched in the UK offering money transfer and exchange. Today, 15 million customers around the world use dozens of Revolut’s innovative products to make more than 100 million transactions a month.
Across our personal and business accounts, we help customers improve their financial health, give them more control, and connect people seamlessly across the world.
