With over 80,000+ employees, Philips sees the importance of coming together and therefore takes a hybrid approach where employees spend three days in the office and two days remote. This approach was adopted based on their joint learnings from the pandemic, in which they saw how much we could do apart, but also realised how much of a strain, a purely virtual working could have on employees.

What we love about Philips:

💡Philips want employees to choose where, when and how to work that works best for the individual.

💡 Philips's hybrid work model offers flexibility and improved collaboration and outcomes. 

What's worth checking about Philips:

💡Flexibility for employees will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Flexible Working Approach

Studies have shown that, while working entirely from home has advantages, it also comes with drawbacks which includes loneliness and difficulty balancing work and personal time.

To that end, at Philips we are embracing an approach wherein we spend more time together than apart – which for a full-time employee translates to an average of at least three days working from the office and up to two days from home – for our hybrid roles.

This new working model is based on three core tenets:

We believe in the importance of impactful collaboration: There's a certain energy when everyone’s in the same room that can heighten idea generation and creative friction needed for problem-solving. That’s why we have physical hubs around the world where people can come together. 

We embrace flexibility: We want people to be able to choose where, when and how to work, according to task and team schedules. It isn’t just about office versus online – it means choosing the space that works best for the individual, teams and customers, on a case-by-case basis. 

We want to be at our best: The way we work, the way we come together as a community, along with the physical set-up of our workspaces, all are designed to support our well-being and enable us to be at our best. We want everyone at Philips to thrive, both in terms of social and professional well-being, as well as in career development opportunities.
