Activity-based working is at the heart of hybrid working. The activities you carry out on a specific day determine where and when you work.
A personal bank in the digital era – that is the ambition we want to translate into our way of working. Digitalisation and video banking are important elements of our new service model. If you use it in client contact, use it in your own work as well. Practice what you preach: live and experience it yourself, just like we believe in it for our clients.
Hybrid working also gives our current and future colleagues the flexibility to fulfil the various roles they play in their lives: as colleagues, parents, carers, etc. It will become an essential part of our 'people value proposition': at ABN AMRO, you have the freedom to organise your own work activities, wherever and whenever you want. In close consultation with your team and colleagues, of course – and let's not forget our purpose and sustainability targets. Fewer journeys will help us achieve our sustainability targets. Because we believe there's a world to be won.
The essence of hybrid working is that you decide which workstation you need to use based on the specific activity. As a general rule, we therefore assume that colleagues work roughly two to three days at home or remotely per week on average. We also factor in colleagues who are not always able or willing to work from home, since the wellbeing and care of our colleagues is our top priority.
It's important to set up a safe and healthy home workstation. Don't have a good desk, office chair or monitor? ABN AMRO employees can order ergonomic home workstations. We also give our employees regular inspiration, such as having telephone calls while walking outside in nature, having a lunch break and switch everything off at the end of the day.
ABN AMRO offers the possibility of working abroad for a few months. The location is all up to you. Maybe you have a holiday cottage or family living in another country, and you’d like to stay longer than only one or two weeks? We facilitate working in a large number of locations worldwide.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we were not allowed to work at the office. Not having my colleagues around me and working from home every day really affected me. I was convinced that there was another solution and so I explored alternatives. ABN AMRO offers its employees the opportunity to work abroad on a temporary basis.
