Orange Genie News

MindAround one in four UK adults will experience a mental health issue this year. Workplace stress is now the single biggest cause of absence from UK workplaces. Orange Genie have made a commitment to improve staff and stakeholder wellbeing, and that meant we had to do something to safeguard and improve the mental health of our people. 

Umbrella Companies

Umbrella companies often get a bad press and it seems like we’re constantly making the same arguments in their defence. It can feel like we’re being ignored, that we’re a fragile voice of reason being drowned out by the rabid mob. It’s tempting to ask why they hate us, why they’re lying, and what’s so very bad about employing contractors anyway?

Umbrella Company

As a leading UK umbrella company, Orange Genie believe we have a responsibility to look after our contractors. You can see this in some of the services we’ve included in our contractor benefits and rewards platform, Orange Genie Edge. But while we spend a lot of time talking about what those services do, we haven’t paid so much attention to what they mean to the people using them. In this article we’ll examine the impact of two of our most important services, Personal Doctor, and Support and Counselling.

Umbrella Company

One of the most common areas of confusion for umbrella company contractors is employment status. It’s easy to understand why, when so many in the industry also seem to be confused. If you’re working for an umbrella company, you can be forgiven for assuming you’re self-employed, or that you have some mysterious and complex “other” status.

The search for a trustworthy umbrella company can be a real headache for you as a recruiter, and for your supply teachers. You rely on our expertise, much as your schools rely on yours, so it can be a disaster if you find that you’ve trusted the wrong company. That’s why we go to such great lengths to prove ourselves as trustworthy experts. For example, we recently passed our annual FCSA audit, which involves a thorough examination of our practices, processes and systems by auditors from global accountancy firm Ernst and Young.
