A combination of technology, people and workplaces is a powerful way to change how we work today and adapt to the requirements of the future. Bringing these forces together under Agile Working creates a multifaceted value proposition that builds energy for change, flexibility, collaboration, carbon reduction and delivers broader business results.
For approximately two years, Unilever has been shifting to Agile Working, an approach to getting work done with maximum flexibility and minimal constraints. It puts employees in greater control over how, when, and where they work, and supports individual work-life balance.
Initial feedback indicates that Unilever employees are generally 20% happier based in Agile workplaces and believe they are achieving better productivity as individuals and teams. More broadly, Unilever expects the following benefits as Agile Working penetrates the business:
Reduced travel from employee’s commute being reduced and business travel avoidance Significant carbon savings from reduced travel and better efficiency from our buildings
Cost savings from real estate optimization and operational efficiencies being realized
Increasing the capability of our employees and improving productivity
Building a stronger employer value proposition and retaining greater and more diverse talent in the organization.
