The telecommunication company O2 has come up with a new employment scheme known as ‘Working Families Contract’. The contract provides the employees of the firm to switch to flexible working hours, in order to balance with their personal and professional life.
The Company will avail the working mothers and fathers in the firm with the facility to choose their working hours. The new scheme will be facilitated on trial basis at the O2 stores in London’s Greenwich, Edinburgh and St Albans. The workers will be allowed to select their full time working hours, or work for some extra hours in order to compensate. The entire plan has been outlined by the internet based organization Mumsnet.
According to the HR Director at O2, Ann Pickering, the plan has been formulated keeping in mind the responsibilities of the workers towards their families along with their accountability at the professional front. Ms. Pickering further states that, “The importance of work life balance in determining our people’s loyalty to O2 and their levels of job satisfaction is integral to us offering our customers the best service possible”.
The new ‘Working Families Contract’ will help around 11,500 employees associated with O2 to rise above the household problems and concentrate on their career.
