Xero revises flexible working policy


Accounting software provider Xero has revamped its flexible work policy.

Xero has offered flexible working for more than a decade, according to the company, and switched to fully remote work during COVID-19 lockdowns.

Over the last 18 months it has been developing "a policy that's clear, designed for the future and ensures there are no surprise catches or fine print."

The company is actively recruiting, and new and existing employees in a variety of disciplines including engineering, data science and design will be able to choose to work remotely, in an office, or in a hybrid manner.

The new policy is being rolled out progressively, starting with the product and technology teams in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK. It will then be extended to the US, and to other roles.

Current vacancies allowing remote work can be seen here.

Significantly, the new policy isn't set in stone, and Xero intends to adjust it to meet the evolving needs of the remote workforce.

"We've always been huge advocates of flexible work at Xero," said Xero chief people officer Nicole Reid.

"We know we get the best out of people when we empower them to work how they like and choose their own career adventure. We've put a lot of effort and research into ensuring we're creating policies that make a difference to our people.

"Our new program is designed to support the Xeros of today and the future so we can support every type of worker, from wherever they are.

"We've been quite particular about creating a policy that is clear and easy to understand. We've taken on research and feedback from our employees, and through our Future of Work group, developed a policy that is clear and upfront about what employees can, and can't expect, without the fine print."
