LIFE AT OXFORD INSTRUMENTS
Empowering people to make a difference
We don’t wait for change to happen. We enable it. That’s why we aim to create the best working environment and culture for our people to thrive. We share the same goals and value diversity of thought, perspective and experience. With a focus on the ongoing development, engagement and wellbeing of our people, we know we will continue to exceed customer expectations and drive change for the future.
Rewards and benefits
We make sure our employees have the flexibility to get the most out of their time, with the option to purchase additional holiday or carry time over from year to year.
Health and Wellbeing
We help our employees stay fit and healthy by offering Employee Assistance Programmes, a range of healthcare plans, check-ups and insurance cover, and we have a team of Mental Health First Aiders around the world.
Pensions & Retirement
We help employees plan for the future by offering retirement planning tools and workshops as well as competitive pension schemes or retirement plans such as 401Ks which exceed or are in line with local requirements.
Incentive & Referral Schemes
We recognise that it’s our people who make us successful. That’s why, no matter what the role, when our employees go above and beyond expectations, we reward them. And we’re always on the lookout for the best talent, so when our employees help us by finding and referring new hires, we return the favour with a generous cash bonus.
We help our employees to develop new skills and progress their careers by sponsoring and supporting additional qualifications.
Share Incentive Plan
Our UK-based employees can purchase company shares free of tax and National Insurance, and for every five shares purchased, the company provides a free one.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Creating a better future
Building a more diverse workforce can help us to better understand our customers and markets. It also helps us be more innovative and creative. That’s why we value difference and recognise people for what they bring to our business.
We recruit, train and promote the best candidates based on suitability for the role. Our managers receive unconscious bias training and all employees attend Diversity & Inclusion workshops. We’ve also enhanced our leave and flexible working schemes to attract and retain a more diverse workforce.
And we’re supporting future generations to realise their ambitions by working closely with local schools to bring STEM subjects to life. In the UK, we run school work experience programmes and we’ve launched post-doctoral industrial placements for researchers to gain experience in industry.
