Markus Staude-Skowronek, CFO/CHRO of Marc O'Polo AG, explains this decision: "Our employees make a significant contribution to the success of our company, so modern working concepts are very important to us. This new opportunity to work remotely in other EU countries gives our employees even greater flexibility to organise their working day and leisure time to achieve a work-life balance."
Behija Karup, Director Human Resources & Central Services, adds: "After the excellent feedback we received on our concept "Freedom to Flexwork", this is the next logical step to help drive our internationalisation forward. We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to our teams."
"The Freedom to Flexwork" is Marc O'Polo's response to new working and the issue of how people will collaborate in an international organisation in the future. Behind it are modern, sustainably designed buildings, innovative workplace concepts and a hybrid working model. The aim is to enable employees to use their working hours efficiently and flexibly — with greater autonomy for lasting employee satisfaction.
Marc O'Polo employees can work up to 50% of their working hours from the mobile office, and the expansion of the regulation means that a part of this time can now be at a location anywhere within the EU. This will enable employees to, for example, extend their stay at their holiday destination, to plan workation stays or simply allow the environment and ambiance of another country to inspire and motivate them.
