Our staff are at the heart of GoCo. That’s why we make sure they’re healthy, happy and at the top of their game. We support our people, not only through their professional development and clear career pathways, but their work-life balance; staff health and wellbeing are key to both effectiveness and the success of our businesses.

We embrace the paradox of individuality and Group identity; we encourage all staff to be their authentic selves, to amplify, innovate and challenge themselves in a trusted environment. We have highly engaged and loyal employees, contributing far more than ‘business as usual’; our people help us fulfil our mission.

Sharing our success

Our employees have access to a wide range of benefits but we also want them to share in the success of the business through the participation of our all-employee share schemes, thus aligning employee interests with other stakeholders in the Group.

Our Share Incentive Plan give employees the opportunity to have their monthly purchased shares matched by us one-for-one and our SAYE Scheme enables employees to purchase ordinary shares in the company at a discounted price to market using funds they have saved over a specific period of time.
