Our MD, Joanna Hansford is named in the 2013 Power Part Time List
Our Managing Director, Joanna Hansford has been named in the 2013 Power Part Time list, a roll call featuring 50 powerful UK executives - who all happen to work part time or flexibly. The 2013 Power Part Time List has been put together by the Timewise Foundation (timewisefoundation.org.uk), a leading social business that champions the social and business benefits of creating good quality flexible working opportunities. Co-founder Karen Mattison MBE built the list to ‘shine a light’ on modern day patterns of work, after taking nominations from all round the UK. Mattison aims to de-mystify the process of climbing the career ladder, while working flexibly.
The initiative has the backing of EY and six executive search firms. The sole representative in the hair care industry, Joanna works four days a week, choosing to do so to create a better work life balance for herself, something that is embraced at Jo Hansford. When she had her first child seven years ago she realised she wanted to be as committed to raising her family, as to running her business and felt each parts of her life needed equal attention and dedication as they both grow and develop.
Joanna manages a team of 48 staff and believes that communication and giving staff flexibility means they are happier people and put more care and effort in to their jobs. This year Jo Hansford won the award for ‘Best salon in Mayfair’ by the Mayfair Times magazine and were runner up in the London Lifestyle Awards. The client list is much envied and includes Elizabeth Hurley, Duchess of Cornwall and Erin O’Connor. Alongside this they have developed and launched an award winning Jo Hansford 'Expert Colour Care' range which is now being acclaimed internationally.
Joanna Hansford said: “I’m honoured to have been included in the Timewise Foundation’s 2013 Power Part Time list. I hope that, by opening up about my own personal working patterns, I can help pave the way for future generations of workers. At Jo Hansford we are committed to ensuring part time employees do not feel segregated or isolated from the team and that the structure and staff development is the same for everyone who works with us. It does not matter how many days or hours you do, if you do it well you can reach your potential and you will be recognised and rewarded.”
The Timewise Foundation’s founder and judge Karen Mattison MBE, who led the initiative from the start says: “Joanna and the other 49 individuals on the list represent the face of modern work. In sharing their stories, they prove there is more than one path to success. So much of the conversation around flexibility, until now, has focused on what’s not possible. Joanna is helping to change the conversation, to what is. The Power Part Time Listers are trailblazers, paving the way for future generations. ”
