Articles about Centrica:
Centrica has announced that it will continue to evolve flexible working for its 6,000 contact centre employees and, in doing so, will transform how it serves customers.
’Flexible First’ responds to polls and focus groups that revealed that most people working for Centrica value the flexibility of homeworking with getting the team together in the office for collaboration. As a result, Centrica colleagues will not return to working permanently in offices once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
The new way of working, which has been designed with feedback and involvement from more than 5,000 colleagues, will enable those working at one of Centrica’s sites across the country to have flexibility and choice about whether to work from home or an office, with the premise that meeting customers’ needs are paramount, as is ensuring the safety of all of Centrica colleagues.
This flexibility will provide the opportunity for contact centre colleagues to focus on customer service whilst benefiting from an improved work-life balance to do things like manage childcare, caring responsibilities or getting fit.
