Deloitte has announced that once state-based restrictions have been lifted, employees will choose when they return to the office and what hours they will work.
The consultancy firm has done away with specific start and finish times. Even more, there is no set number of days employees will be required to come into the office. Deloitte’s staff will also be given one paid wellbeing day each year
“There will be a greater focus on outcomes, as opposed to inputs,” said Adam Powick, CEO of Deloitte. “So it is less about when and where you work but more about the value and outcomes that you deliver.”
Employees will have the ability to negotiate their work arrangements with their managers. Additionally, workers would need to abide by client procedures when it comes to start and finish times.
However, Tina McCreery, Deloitte’s chief HR officer, doesn’t expect staff to work remotely most of the time.
“For us, in a difficult talent market at the moment with borders closed, this is about reinforcing our culture of trust and empowerment rather than a policy change,” said McCreery.
