SThree to introduce a hybrid working model when offices re-open

The pandemic has forced businesses to change the way they operate on a daily basis. One change that is here to stay is flexible working, as it’s something that’s now expected of employers.

At SThree, we’ve made sure everyone has the technology required to successfully carry out their roles remotely. However, with some governments now putting timelines in place for the re-opening of office spaces it’s vital that we’re prepared for what comes next.

Matthew Blake, Chief People Officer for SThree, said:

We’ve held global focus groups and spoken to people from across our business, and the feedback we’ve received is that our colleagues would like to have the flexibility to work remotely while also having the option to go into the office.

Our hybrid way of working is about giving our people flexibility and choice, while at the same time meeting the demands of the business. For most people this will mean a combination of some days in the office and some from home in a normal working week. These of course are subject to change depending on specific circumstances.

“We see this as a key step in evolving and developing our culture, and positioning SThree as a great place to work.

It’s all about finding a balance, therefore our people will agree their new working routines with their line managers. That way everyone is on the same page and working together.
