WORKYOURWAY INSIDER VIEW

Instead of one standard flexible policy, bp recognises that each person's circumstances are different, therefore they offer a range of flexible working options that can be discussed to reflect this.

What we love about bp:

💡 bp offer a variety of agile working options, which provides ultimate flexibility for employees. 

💡 bp understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't provide employees with the level of flexibility required. 

What's worth checking with bp:

💡 Flexible working and the options offered are job role dependant.

Flexible Working Approach

bp recognizes that there is no one standard flexible working policy that will suit every individual. As a result, we have developed a comprehensive range of agile working options based on some core principles which vary across each of the countries in which we operate. We are open to discussing these with you once you have reached the face to face interview stage of the recruitment process, and these discussions will be very much role dependent. 

FLEXIBASE WORKING PATTERNS DEFINITIONS
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.
Agile Working: This method of work gives employees the option to work where, when and how they choose – with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints.
Full-time: A full-time employee works between 35 and 40 hours per week, usually on a permanent contract.
FLEXIBASE WORKLOAD DEFINITIONS
Reduced Hours: This is a provision given by an organisation to an employee to work for a lesser number of hours as compared to the mandatory working hours set for all employees.
Job Share: An arrangement where two people, or sometimes more, are retained on a part-time or reduced-time basis to perform a job normally fulfilled by one person working full-time.
FLEXIBASE WORKPLACE DEFINITIONS
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.
FLEXIBASE LIFE EVENT DEFINITIONS
Career Breaks / Sabbatical: These are an extended periods of agreed absence from work. The term is often used interchangeably with "sabbatical", which is generally taken to mean a shorter period of leave of several weeks or months.
Shared Parental Leave: This allows parents to share a portion of leave and pay with their partners to care for children from birth, usually until their first birthday.
