Lubbock Fine tells staff ‘work when you like, where you like’

Employees at the London firm will have the option to work from home, in the office, or abroad, depending on the specific requirements of their role

Lubbock Fine, a London-based accountancy and business advisory firm, has announced that its employees can decide “when and where they work” – as part of the group’s new ‘smart working’ model. 

The mid-tier firm, which has 13 partners and employs over 140 staff, has designed the new approach to improve both “work-life balance and client experience”.

 Staff will now be encouraged by the firm to adopt their “personal best hours”, and are free to build their own work schedule to fit their personal lives, family commitments and wellbeing activities, alongside the needs of their colleagues and clients.

Employees will also have the option to work from home, in the office, or abroad, depending on the specific requirements of their role. 

Teams will select their own hybrid working location that is “best suited” to the type of activity or client work they are undertaking.

After going fully remote during the pandemic, the firm’s leadership decided to pursue an “ultra-flexible” model having witnessed “strong outcomes” in productivity, employee work-life balance and client satisfaction scores.

Robert Morley, chief operating officer at Lubbock Fine, said: “Our aim was to create one of the most flexible and competitive policies in the City, while continuing to ensure an outstanding client experience.

“Lubbock Fine’s Smart Working approach is built on trust and reflects the diversity of employee needs and preferences. Throughout our internal consultation process, one consistent message was clear – our teams work best when given freedom to decide.”
