Lorraine King, Senior HR Manager at Axonista, said about the award, “I am so proud of our people centric, thoughtful and imaginative People Ops team members who have spent countless hours ensuring our employees feel supported and deeply cared for and this award is a testament to their hard work and dedication this past year.”

Health and Wellness at Axonista 

Employees’ health and wellness is crucial to Axonista’s company culture. As a remote company, we recognise the importance of supporting our team and creating an environment that promotes a healthy work-life balance. We encourage our team to take time off, and we host various online and in-person events focusing on building connections and enabling our employees to feel well.

We have been running our new Wellness program since January 2022, and our ‘Themed Months’ have been hugely popular. Some highlights include our inaugural Wellness Month, which took place in February. We had a number of online activities that focused on wellness, encouraging everyone to take care of themselves. We also had a company-wide day off in February to focus on individual wellness. We have our “First Friday” initiative, where we encourage everyone to come together and meet their peers and friends for a day of working in a shared working space on the first Friday of every month.

In addition to creating a workplace that promotes wellness, we know that providing a supportive environment to our employees is essential to help our team, provide flexibility and boost engagement. We have implemented many support policies such as Health Insurance Contribution, Work From Anywhere Policy and Working From Home Scheme. We also provide the Axonista Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), designed to assist employees in dealing more effectively with personal or work-related issues, but also to provide them with information and access to key resources that can make their day-to-day life that little bit easier.

Diversity in Tech Awards

We are so proud of our People Ops team’s work to ensure our employees’ wellbeing, and we are delighted to be recognised among other companies promoting and encouraging diversity, inclusion and wellness in the workplace.

We’re also on the lookout for new team members to join in our mission of building the video-first future of commerce, so if this sounds like something you are interested in, please check out our careers page.
