Employee owned


Our people own 75% of the business, giving them a vested interest in our success. It works for them and for our business. Typically, employee-owned businesses are more productive, more innovative and more resilient.

Big on social


Yes, we work hard at Answer. But as part of our team, you'll find we're a pretty sociable group of people too. Fun. It's not just allowed. It's essential.

Answer Digital's approach to Hybrid Working

Our hybrid working approach puts people first. For us this means we recognise the value of home working along with spending time in collaborative working environments with our people and clients. we empower individuals to set their working locations - one that works for our projects, our clients and our business.

It's a culture thing

Time together serves to support the sharing of our company values whether its onboarding new people, mentoring the Academy or project initiation. Time in a room together does make a difference and builds on our values-led ethos. Everyone is different, each client engagement presents a new challenge and so we believe flexibility is absolutely crucial to succeed for our people and our clients.

Together

We truly believe that everyone benefits from seeing each other in real life! Whilst we embrace the virtual world we operate in, we feel passionate about people wanting to come together to collaborate, socialise and connect. For us though this is about teams and communities of people wanting to engage and connect.

We expect our approach to hybrid working to continue to evolve. We're setting nothing in stone, other than to place our people at the heart of what we do.

What employee ownership means to you

As a values-led organisation with a strong culture and identity, transitioning to employee ownership represented an evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, step for Answer. It’s evident from our growth that this level of drive and engagement has had a positive impact on the outcomes our clients are experiencing when working with Answer.
