Flexi-working with Telefónica O2
Flexi-working communications at O2's Slough office.
Healthier, happier and more productive employees.
With employee numbers growing, Telefónica's car parks were over capacity, turning away as many as 150 cars a day at some sites. They needed a new, broader approach to fulfill their commitment to flexi-working.
Encouraging employees to work from home one day per week, the flexi-working programme improved the well-being and productivity of staff while decreasing Telefónica's operating costs.
Embedding a cultural change
Within four weeks, we designed a robust, business-case led flexi-working programme, focusing on 4 key elements:
- Senior leadership messaging
- Technology and policy barriers
- Management perceptions and skill sets
- Communications and education
A better work/life balance
With Global Action Plan’s help, Telefónica’s flexi-working campaign produced incredible results:
- 96% of employees felt equally or more productive flexi-working
- 100% of staff reported a better work/life balance
- For every desk not required in an office, Telefónica saves £7,000 each year
Using their expertise in sustainable behaviour change and by gaining a deep understanding of Telefónica’s core values, Global Action Plan embedded a widespread culture shift across Telefónica employees.
