PepsiCo has adopted a permanent flexible workplace policy as the traditional 9 to 5 work day becomes a thing of the past.
The global food and beverage company is taking a human-centric approach by removing start and end times and allowing employees to have more say in when they work.
“What we’ve managed to achieve is a fundamental shift to complete and utter trust in our people – and I truly believe this has to be a leadership mindset,” said Anita Patrick, HR director at PepsiCo. “What we see as a result from this is our people reaching their full potential and performance.”
Patrick added that the company understands the importance of fluidity in the future and will make an effort to find a balance between remote and in-office working.
According to PepsiCo’s CIO Brian Green, adopting this flexible work policy has made it easier to manage those working in various time zones, as well as balancing his family responsibilities.
