StanChart Unveils Permanent Move to Flexible Working From 2021

  • About 90% of staff will have option to pick location, hours
  • Bank talking to third-party provider of U.K., Asia workspaces

Standard Chartered Plc plans to offer flexible work options to more than 90% of its 85,000 staff over three years, a sign of how pandemic crisis management is leading to long-term change in the role of the office.

The bank said about half its staff will be able to apply for some form of hybrid work from early 2021. Standard Chartered expects the program to apply to about 75,000 workers in 55 markets by 2023.
