Employee Benefits

Rewarding your commitment. From financial security to personal growth, we're here to support you.

Employees are the heart of Version 1 - we are a people business

We have been driving success for our customers for more than twenty years not simply through the market leading technology solutions we provide – but through our people. Version 1 employees are a dynamic, forward-thinking, curious, ambitious group who together strive to be difference makers in all that they do.  So, we like to reward them with a range of benefits that enhance their experience and commitment. Many of our employees choose to take advantage of the opportunity to work from home, either on an ad hoc basis or with a regular pattern. Many also work flexible hours, depending on what works for themselves and their customers.

Below is listed just some of the many perks Version 1 provides our permanent employees.

Time Off: Supporting your moments that matter

Your Health and Wellbeing: Live Life to the Fullest

We invest in a strong culture of wellness through programs, activities and resources that help our employees create their own journey toward optimal wellbeing.

Your Health
From the day that you join Version 1 you’ll be eligible to join the company Private Healthcare Plan. Our healthcare partners also offer preferential rates for family members too.
Step Challenge
One of our biggest events of the year is our annual Step Challenge, which hundreds of our employees participate in every Summer. A sense of community and competition drives us all to target 10,000 steps a day for a month, with prizes for the highest individual and team achievements – and a lot of miles are covered!
Employee Assistance Programme
Our Employee Assistance Programme is a confidential third-party counselling service providing emotional support and advice to all employees and their families.
Life Assurance
When you join Version 1 you are auto enrolled from your first day into a life assurance policy. A lump sum benefit is payable for all permanent employees, should the worst happen.
Free Eye Tests
As an IT consultancy our employees spend a lot of time looking at screens. Therefore we ensure that our people have the support needed from a vision perspective. You are eligible for a free annual eye test and up to £45/€45 towards the cost of glasses.
Sick Leave
Version 1 is dedicated to the health, safety and welfare of all its employees. In certain circumstances the company understands that employees may be absent from work due to sickness or ill health. All employees are eligible for paid sick leave once probation has been passed.

The Version 1 Health and Wellbeing Framework

The overarching principle here at Version 1 is our Wellbeing framework which is based on the ‘Strength in Balance‘ theme. It encapsulates all aspects of a Version 1 employee’s health and wellbeing.
