Flexible Working Approach

Discovery offers a variety of arrangements to support time off and flexible working around the globe to enable our employees to better balance work and personal commitments. Flexible working options include: flextime, working remotely, compressed work week, job sharing, summer hours, and working from another Discovery location. 

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees took advantage of remote working opportunities, but once COVID-19 hit, nearly all of our employees became full-time work-from-home employees. As our offices reopen, new hybrid working policies are being put in place to promote a mix of home and in-office working for employees.

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.
Term-time: These are contract based agreements that are used to accommodate an individuals childcare responsibilities during school holidays, as well as for staff who work in the education sector.
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.
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.
FLEXIBASE WORKLOAD DEFINITIONS
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.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
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.
