March 2020, was a month that turned not only the UK, but the World on its head. Naturally, it was the time when official lockdown measures were put into place, prompting the entire nation to ponder the implications – both on an individual level and in terms of personal and financial consequences. For Kinetica and our sister company, Veblen International it proved to be a transformational turning point as our Group Managing Director Matthew Tuton explains.

“It would be insincere of me to say it was easy. As a group of Directors, we had to navigate uncharted territory and adapt quickly, from developing the IT infrastructure, to making sure our team had the right office equipment to be able to carry on seamlessly.” 

“By mid-May of 2020 the recruitment industry had adapted significantly, showing creativity in their quest to find talent. As a business, we saw our overall productivity and results actually surge. Two years later this trend hasn’t stopped.”

“As a senior management team, we wanted to understand if this was purely down to the working from home factor, and so with restrictions easing we began to trial and track the advantages and disadvantages of a fully remote model. From mid-2021 we knew this was the right route for us and took the step to adopt it as our official business model, but with a company office day once a month at our head office in Leeds to ensure our team remained connected.”

“Team members now enjoy a better work-life balance, fitting in family and work commitments to suit them. Our early finish on a Friday afternoon means that they can make the most of the weekend.  As a business, we now have the ability to attract talent from across the country as part of our evolving talent acquisition strategy."
