BP locks in two-day work-from-home policy

15 March 2021Oil company confirms move to flexible workplace. Global oil company BP has told 25,000 office-based staff that they will be expected to work from home for two days a week as part of a post-pandemic shift to flexible working patterns. The company introduced the new hybrid model of working to staff last month, and expects the 60-40 split between office and home working to take effect over the next few months. The company said it recognises the value of in-person collaboration and remote work, and hopes that the mix will offer individuals and teams a more “flexible, engaging and dynamic” way of working. The hybrid working approach will extend across BP’s global network of offices. BP employs more than 5700 people across Australia; operating in every state and territory, with main offices in Melbourne (pictured), Sydney and Perth. The company will be “changing and reconfiguring” its offices over time, to support collaboration and create more flexible environments to hold meetings and share ideas, according to a company spokesperson. “Some roles will require people to be in the office or their prime location every day, and some roles will require greater travel or connecting digitally with colleagues, with less time in the office. There may also be some colleagues who prefer working in the office more,” he said.
