London, UK (February 26, 2018) - Eve Dixon has been named in the 2018 Timewise Power 50 awards, a roll-call of the UK’s top flexible and part-time workers who are delivering in high-earning, business-critical roles with non-traditional working patterns.
With part-time and flexible working at senior levels continuing to move further into the spotlight, the unveiling of the Timewise Power 50 awards, champions the people who are doing it best, and the organisations who are responding to how people in the UK want to work.
Eve is a member of the Kantar TNS UK Board, representing the consumer, retail and leisure sector, as well as mother to two primary school aged boys. As the Managing Director, she leads a team of 70 people; in her Board role, she helps drive the strategic direction of the organisation and holds responsibility for the P&L. She also enjoys unlocking purpose, pride and passion in her colleagues and clients.
Throughout her career, Eve has worked with global brands, providing them with insight to help drive growth within their business. Outside of her sector focus, she is a leading figure in Kantar’s inclusion and diversity strategy. She champions greater awareness of mental health issues at work and is a qualified business coach.
Timewise (www.timewise.co.uk) is a multi-award winning social business working to unlock the flexible jobs market in the UK, running a series of services to articulate the business benefits of quality part time and flexible work, designed to boost the number of jobs that are advertised with flexible working possibilities in the UK.
The Awards, designed to inspire more employers to open their doors to talented people who need flexible and part-time work, has been published in association with Management Today and is supported by three businesses that champion workplace change and are at the cutting-edge of finding the best of talent: EY, Diageo and Dixons Carphone.
Joint CEO Karen Mattison MBE led the judging panel which included:
- Lynn Rattigan, Chief Operating Officer, EY UK&I
- Katie Bickerstaffe, Chief Executive Officer, Dixons Carphone plc, UK&I
- Andrew Porter, Head of Talent Engagement, Diageo
- Nicola Mendelsohn, VP for EMEA, facebook
- Sophie Cornish, Co-founder, notonthehighstreet.com
- Sam Baker, CEO & Co-Founder, The Pool
- Sally Bundock, Presenter, BBC World Business Report
- Andrew Saunders, former Deputy Editor & contributor, Management Today
- Emma Stewart MBE, Joint CEO, Timewise
After receiving a wide range of industry nominations, the judges compiled the lists of people and businesses deemed to be the most outstanding. The awards are not ranked or numbered in any way.
Eve Dixon says: “I'm very proud to be included in the Timewise 2018 Power 50 awards. I am passionate about the difference flexible working can make to an organisation and how it enables working mothers to become senior leaders. However, it’s not just a “women’s issue”. This future focused way of working is an approach which can help many people, at all levels, achieve better work-life integration. In return those companies offering flex, gain the competitive advantage that comes with a diverse workforce.”
Timewise Joint CEO and judge Karen Mattison MBE, who led the initiative from the start says: “Eve Dixonand all winners from our top 50 represent how work in the UK is changing, and offers us a glimpse into how jobs will be designed in the future. All it takes is an open minded employer who is prepared to try something new in a bid to hire or keep the best people, and an innovative solution is born. I am delighted that the conversation is moving away from WHY people need to work flexibly, to HOW businesses and individuals are making it work.”
