The Bank of Ireland has opened five more remote working hubs to encourage work-life balance. The staff can choose between going to the central office or working from these new hubs.
The bank already has six remote working hubs located in Gorey, Mullingar, Dundalk, Naas, Balbriggan, and Northern Cross. And now, they just opened five more located in Swords, Blanchardstown, Stantry, Newbridge, and Newlands Cross.
Bank of Ireland & Remote Work
The government of Ireland is still analyzing the bill to approve remote work requests. Meanwhile, the bank said they would reopen the offices considering the Government’s advice of gradual returning.
While most of its staff has been working remotely throughout the pandemic, many are returning to the office. And now, they also can work in the various remote working hubs.
The bank’s hybrid model focuses on using office space for meetings and encourages collaboration. In contrast, the remote working hubs are more suitable for focused and individual work.
According to Matt Elliott, Bank of Ireland’s Chief People Officer:
“Opening five new remote working hubs means that there are now even more flexible working options for colleagues. Depending on their role, our working model allows colleagues to work from a combination of home and central office locations, and now offers access to a network of 11 remote working hubs,”
