Five tools for design survival (especially in a tech startup)

Five tools for design survival (especially in a tech startup)

Despite the fact that Piriform is now ten years old, and can’t technically be seen as a startup – it has certainly retained that culture.

How to thrive as a flexible workforce

How to thrive as a flexible workforce

We now live in a world dominated by social media, apps and start-ups. It’s undeniable that in the last few years tech has boomed. 

Although tech has always been perceived as a solid career choice, in recent years it’s become a highly attractive industry to work in. For us, this has had an impact on recruitment as the market’s demand for certain skillsets has risen, primarily in software development.

Flexible working also applies to our office-based employees too. ‘Making Piriform a great place to work’ is one of our company objectives so we do everything we can to ensure employees achieve a work/life balance. About half our London-based staff don’t work strictly 9-5.30 and we recently approved our first flexible working request by a member of our development team which was made so he could help with childcare arrangements.

As today is Flexible Working Awareness Day I thought I’d share a few tips we’ve learned along the way...
