WORKYOURWAY INSIDER VIEW

As a result of COVID-19, BD is working to change the way they work through their hybrid 'BD workplace 2025 Model' to ensure flexibility for their employees.

What we love about BD:

💡 BD have implemented flexible working to ensure a good work environment / create a work-life balance.

💡 BD provide support through tools and training resources to guide employees through the new ways of working

What's worth checking with BD:

💡 Their hybrid model isn't applicable to everyone as a result of their large manufacturing footprint and field-based associates.

Flexible Working Approach

COVID-19 reset the expectation of most workers triggering a shift in the priorities influencing the decision to join or stay with an organization. Knowing that BD is developing a new hybrid model where associates in defined roles have the opportunity to work part of the week remotely, with in-office days focused on collaboration, connection with team members, mentorship and solving complex issues that require in-person interaction.

The new model introduces greater flexibility and enables you to structure work in a way that meets both individual and business needs.
