Betsson Group has recently announced a ‘Hybrid WFH’ Model which the igaming giant intends to adopt once it is deemed safe for employees to return to working from the office.
With COVID-19 forcing many to test out remote working systems, Betsson is among several companies around the world who have chosen to retain flexible working measures post-pandemic.
Commenting on the decision, Lena Nordin, Chief HR Officer at Betsson Group says, “for now, all 1,800 Betsson Group employees all over the world (whereof 1,200 in Malta) are working from home and will continue to do so until it’s safe to return. When that time does come, we will pilot a new model that will give most of our staff both flexibility and face-to-face time together.”
The model will see the introduction of two mandatory days in the office, while three days a week can be worked remotely.
“We believe that the combination of both worlds is the best option,” Mr Nordin reflects, adding that “besides this great perk of working up to three days a week from home, most Betssonites will also get a further two weeks a year when they can work remotely from abroad.”
The new model is expected to come into effect “sometime in autumn when (hopefully) the majority of people are vaccinated and some kind of normality resumes,” according to the company.
‘Never overlook the fundamental concept that technology is always the tool, and never the actual solution.’
She will replace Elizabeth Hardy, whose three-year secondment in the position will end in June.
