Ginibee graduated from Cambridge Social Ventures in July 2015.
Ginibee is on a mission to make job sharing accessible and accepted as a career strategy. They help organisations to retain talent and develop greater diversity in their talent pipeline by successfully and efficiently implementing job sharing as a flexible working option.
The flagship SaaS product uses cloud-based technology to enable progressive organisations to embed job sharing into their culture, by empowering employees seeking to reduce their working hours to create full-time partnership propositions. It works by building a community of job sharers and linking them together to create full-time partnership propositions.
With the economy recovering, stats indicate that last year 56% of open full-time roles were unable to be filled. At the same time, three credible research pieces indicate that a massive 30% of departures are due to work-life balance and with the average cost of replacing an employee at £30,000, this is a significant cost saving opportunity for organisations. In fact, the cost of attrition in the UK in 2013 was £63 billion, in 2016 it was predicted to increase to as much as 49% costing a massive £206 billion. These figures are significant and pose a strong case for companies to invest in new transformational ways to retain their staff that enable a work life balance and in doing so reduce the amount they spend on replacing staff that leave due to work-life balance.
As a standalone or integrated solution, Ginibee’s SaaS offering enables businesses to harness the benefits of job sharing, without increasing the HR workload. It does this in a number of ways:
- Easy sourcing and matching of job-share partners: our cloud based SaaS platform GinibeeBuzz efficiently automates the matching of internal employees looking to job share, using a unique algorithm.
- Targeted analytics: offers HR professionals valuable insights into progress and cost savings achieved via the platform.
- Training & coaching: our onboarding process ensures that nominated ambassadors are fully trained in job-sharing best practice and how to effectively support job sharers and their managers in setting up successful job-share arrangements.
- Resourcing vacancies as a job share: for smaller organisations, or companies that would prefer external support, we also offer full resourcing support to help you fill particular vacancies as a job share, and set them up effectively, enabling you to access a new and untapped talent pool.
