Flexible Working Approach

At BDO, Agile Working means the autonomy to work however you are most productive - some tasks are better done at a client site, some in an office, and some at home. At the heart of our new normal is flexibility, choice and trust.

Work From Home (WFH): This is where an employee has the ability to set up their workspace at home, and manage their work without the need to go to the office.
