Flexibility at the forefont of Xero's new work program aiming to support its global workforce - wherever they may be

xero image.If the pandemic has made you seriously think about when and where you work, you might like the sound of this. Xero, the global small business platform has just launched its redesigned flexible work program, giving its growing product and tech teams the opportunity to work where they perform best — at home, in the office or a mix of both.

The program will enable current and new engineers, designers, data scientists, product managers and more to choose to work fully remote, from the office, or in a hybrid model. The policies have been designed to ensure people work in areas where Xero has a presence and in close vicinity to the teams they work most with.

Xero has run as a global and flexible company for more than a decade, by creating product and tech hubs around the world that put teams closer to the small businesses they’re building for, while also providing flexibility to work from home and the office. The company was therefore able to transition to fully remote work with ease during the global lockdowns.

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. 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.”

And now, as Xero embarks on one of its biggest hiring drives to date, the company has launched a Choose your Own Adventure Work’ Quiz to help potential candidates to understand what style of work would best suit them. 

It’s a pretty novel approach! It will be interesting to see the impact of this on Xero’s recruitment drive and also if other companies start to follow suit!
