Starting in January Publicis Groupe employees are receiving a new benefit — they can work from almost anywhere in the world for up to six weeks annually.
It’s part of the Groupe’s new “Work Your World” employee program. The program will allow every Publicis Groupe employee to work from any accessible country where the Groupe is present, for up to six weeks a year.
The company released a video that broad-stroked the program for employees. It features Global CEO Arthur Sadoun and Global Chief Strategy Officer Carla Serrano.
Sadoun explained that surveys revealed the majority of employees were interested in leveraging pandemic-inspired remote working policies to experience working in another city or country for a period of time.
Starting in January, there will be a “Work Your World” landing page on Marcel, that includes a home-swapping function Groupe employees can utilize if they decide to take advantage of the program. It includes hundreds of locations where the Groupe operates. More details will be unveiled at a seminar next week for employees.
“We have been working hard on how to turn the hybrid world into new opportunities for everyone at Publicis and make the future of work more creative and more daring,” Sadoun stated.
He cautioned, however, that the program could be paused depending on the vagaries of the pandemic.
