Flexible Working Approach

Work smarter! Our flexible and mobile Future Of Work promise.

The world is changing and so are we. The last few years have shown us more than once how important flexibility is - for us, for society and above all for our employees. With our Smart Work model, we are expanding the level of flexibility and offering flexible and mobile working hours as well as other location-independent and hybrid working models for Hub Berlin.

More focus on the job, more time for hobbies and family, and no desire to move or commute every day? The advantages of mobile working models are clear. Whether only two days a week working from home or up to 90% working from your mobile office, we offer you the freedom to create your own work-life balance and support needs-oriented solutions for a sustainable future.

At the same time, we remain connected as one team through digital tools and an open and modern collaboration culture, even across local distances. Learn more about our flexible working options!
