BP's Office Staff to Work From Home Two Days a Week Under Hybrid Model
By Adria Calatayud
BP PLC said Monday that it is introducing a new hybrid model of
working for staff who had previously been fully office-based, under
which around 25,000 employees will typically work from home two
days a week.
The British energy giant said it will be changing and
reconfiguring its offices over time. The company expects to roll
out the new model this summer, with implementation subject to BP
and local coronavirus-related guidelines, it said.
"Over the past year, we have learnt how effectively people can
work remotely, but also the importance of collaboration and
innovation and how this is still most effective face-to-face," BP
The company said most office-based workers will have a 60:40
workplace-home split as part of the new model, which seeks to offer
individuals and teams a more flexible way of working.
