Electronic Art's Flexible Working policy provides greater working flexibility with options such as remote working as well as paid caregiver leave for eligible employees. 

What we love about Electronic Arts:

💡 Offers flexibility for their teams, ensuring that employees' needs, as well as the needs of the business, are balanced.

💡 EA offers paid leave for new parents and caregivers. 

💡 Doesn't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to working. 

What is worth checking with Electronic Arts:

💡 Not every employee may be eligible for flexible working options such as remote work.

Flexible Working Approach

Our goal with our new Flexible Working policy is to provide greater working flexibility for our teams in a way that balances the needs of our business, our players, and our employees.

Remote Work

We moved all of our offices and studios to a Work From Home (WFH) status in March, and WFH status is still in effect for most of our locations across the world. It is expected that 90% of our employees will continue temporarily working from home until approximately March 2021. We recognize that there will be a period of uncertainty as to the timing of when employees can return to their offices, and we will provide regular updates on site reopening plans and long term remote work options over the coming months. 


Relocation timing will generally be tied to the lifting of travel restrictions, site reopening, and return to office timing for a given employee, unless there are personal or business reasons to relocate earlier. Most relocations will be “Delayed Relocations,” meaning most employees will start working remotely from their current location temporarily if feasible, before ultimately relocating to the new destination location. Our objective is to provide flexibility for employees and managers to agree on when is the ideal time for employees to physically be in the new location.

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.
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.
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.

*Please note that not all flexible working options may not be available for every role.
