Flexible Working Approach

We didn’t wait for a health crisis to persuade us that hybrid working was a good idea to organise work around ensuring the well-being of our people. 

At BNP Paribas, ‘People Care’ is one of the four cornerstones of our Smart Working initiative. The other three - digital tools, workspaces and remote working - are also about achieving greater flexibility. So depending on the job you do, you may be able to work remotely for a proportion of your working week. It’s a great way of reconciling your personal and professional lives!

Part-time: An employee who works fewer hours than a full-time worker. There is no specific number of hours that makes someone part-time, but a full-time worker will usually work 35-40 hours a week.
Flexi-Time: This is a working schedule that allows employees to choose when they start and end their workday, usually to accomodate an individuals needs and other commitments outside of work.
Core Hours / Staggered Hours: Core hours refer to specific times an organisation requires an employee to work, for example 10am to 4pm. Staggered hours are when an employee has different start and finish times from other workers.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Full-time: A full-time employee works between 35 and 40 hours per week, usually on a permanent contract.
Hybrid Working (Office / Home): This means an employee splits their time between the workplace (usually office based) and remote working (usually at home).
Remote or Mobile Working: This is a type of working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices.
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.
Office Working: This refers to an employee being physically present in the workplace to fulfil their contractual responsibilities.
