We’re not like a lot of other companies. Simply, we don’t want to be. We don’t want to be difficult, we just want to be different, so we thought we’d explain a bit about how we do what we do and why we do it that way. We want you to be able to get the best out of us too.
As a certified B Corp business, we truly live and breathe our values, and we’re pretty obsessed about how we can be better every year too. We founded Tyler Grange on four values that are very personal to us:
It was at the heart of everything we did, and we’ve been true to that ever since.
One of the most impactful things we’ve recently done at Tyler Grange is the implementation of a four-day working week across the board, with no loss of pay to our employees. As a matter of fact, we’ve even increased our pay. It’s had nothing but positive results. Our Tribe are happier, more productive and our company is more profitable.
From beer enthusiasts (yes, we brew our own beer) to frisbee-throwing extraordinaires, our team is an eclectic bunch of experts in their field. Each and every team member brings something unique to the Tyler Grange family, whether it’s baked goods, bad jokes, beer trivia or a bit of banter.
We each strive to embody our company values of caring, belonging, opportunity, enjoyment and honesty. An integral part of this means embracing diversity, providing equitable support and facilitating inclusion across our teams and throughout our activities.
We want to work with people who have a similar set of values and purposes to us. It’s not about being exclusive, it’s about having shared goals that we can both celebrate. It’s about us all pulling in the same direction for each other and to us, it just makes sense.

We have a set of values that we’ve lived by since day dot. We’ve not gone a day without sticking to them since we started over a decade ago. We wanted to put some meaning and enjoyment back into our jobs and we knew we needed a framework of values that reflected this. So, we came up with some:
we want to make people’s lives better.
to a Tribe that supports us.
to try new things and share new ideas.
who doesn’t want to enjoy what they do? It’s important.
openness, integrity and clarity with everyone.
At Tyler Grange, all our Tribe receive the following benefits. They’re unconditional, too. These benefits are offered from day one – regardless of the length of time you have been with us or what level you may be coming in at.
We care for each and every one of our team and want to go the extra mile for you. These benefits are just the icing on the cake of life at TG.
We all need money to live, there’s no shying away from it. That’s why we signed up to the Fair Pay Charter, which you can read more about here. It documents our commitment to the ethical treatment and payment of individuals working for Tyler Grange.
Whilst we hope you’ll never need it, having solid life insurance in place can help you rest easy knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of. We won’t think too much further into this one but it’s there should you ever need it…
Holiday and down time is important. It’s also a lot of fun. That’s why we encourage all of our Tribe to make the most of their full holiday allowance. You even get an extra day for your birthday if it falls on a working day – to eat cake and enjoy as you see fit.
Got some in mind? Perhaps you need help refining which will be most beneficial? Chat to your line manager or mentor and they’ll be able to steer you in the right direction.
We understand that 3-days of downtime is better than 2 which is why we only work a 4-day week. This means our employees are free to do what they want on a Friday – whether that’s helping out in the community (see our Farms for City Children here) or just another day to catch up on life admin.
We could preach all day about how important mental health is to us. However, rather than repeat ourselves, if you fancy learning more about how mental health is the top of our agenda, read our blog here.
You put down 4% and we’ll do the same. It’s just one way we help to encourage good, financial wellbeing.
We are committed to developing the skills and confidence of our team. That’s why we recognise the importance of training. It helps you learn, progress and grow so that you can achieve more.
Our EAP offers a remote GP service, as well as direct access to mental health therapists, physiotherapists and private consultants. You can also access advice on a range of life and work issues, including: financial, legal and family concerns; nutritional advice; fitness plans; a confidential 24/7 helpline.
*Not just mentors: professional, technical and non-technical experts. These influences will help you get the most out of life in the Tribe, further your career and help you realise your dreams. No small feat, eh?
Whilst most recruitment companies refuse to class this as an official benefit, we beg to differ…. We’re lucky enough to be on the doorstep of some fantastic suppliers; that’s why our offices stock local, artisanal coffee. It really helps to perk up those cold, Monday mornings!
