Edelman has championed flexible work for a while, and recently introduced their 'Work From Anywhere' model. This allows employees to work from anywhere in the world for up to 30 days a year (providing you have access to high speed internet). The company also promotes a hybrid working week; while they expect employees to come into the office, they allow staff to decide what works best for them each week.

What we love about Edelman:

💡 Edelman empowers employees to follow their passions and goals both inside and outside of the workplace.

💡 Edelman allows their employees to take a sabbatical, which they feel can lead to more sustainable careers.

💡 Edelman gives employees greater control over their lives by understanding the many different needs and wants employees may have when it comes to the way they work.

Flexible Working Approach

Our workplace culture built on trust drive our collective success, and we want to create a working environment that provides our people the flexibility they need to not see professional success, but personal success too.

We’ve designed a way for our people to work from anywhere that advances our organizational values and collaborative nature, while maintaining a flexible working approach.

Here's how it works: 

1. We promote in-office and at-home working

We acknowledge that we all have different working styles – while some of us are more productive in the offices, others find greater productivity at home. Fundamentally, we believe that our communal workspaces are integral to developing our culture of collaboration and community. A hybrid working week at Edelman consists of a mix of working from home and in office connection, and we want to give our people the choice to decide what works best for them each week.

2. We have the flexibility to work around the world

As long as we have access to a high-speed, reliable connection, our people can live in work from anywhere in the world for up to 30 days a year. Each country has differing rules on reporting and withholding of income, so we will need a permanent address for these purposes, but our hope is that this level of flexibility allows our employees to take trips they otherwise wouldn’t be able to, visit distant family for extended periods of time and explore the world in ways they couldn’t before.
