What we offer
Working at IBM is not just about your day-to-day job. When we hire you, we have your long-term professional life in mind.
We encourage you to follow your passion – by learning new skills, working across different disciplines or moving into new challenges.
In short, we believe that global innovation demands not just a diverse range of employees but also the right work/life initiatives that will sustain them, and make them want to stay with us. That’s why IBM gives you the power to design your workday, and your life, according to your unique styles and needs.
We focus on achievement, not hours, and on our people, not projects. The ability to work longer hours some days, shorter hours others; the ability to work from home or at an IBM location nearer home, means you can better balance the demands of your job with your interests and home life.
Diversity at IBM
We have created a workplace that includes everyone and excludes no one. We have networking groups set up across the company that link into our Diversity Council, an umbrella organisation that covers the key areas of gender; bi-cultural groups and people with disabilities.
Our employee policy states that there is a direct link between the salary an employee would receive, the requirements of the job and the effort provided. The ‘pay for performance and results’ principle means that all salaries are regularly assessed and compared both internally and externally (via market research) to ensure that IBM is able to attract and retain highly qualified employees. Employee income is assessed regularly thereafter based on the assessment of the employee’s performance and results.
