Switzerland-based MET Group recognizes the global trends related to changing ways of working. MET is aware that technological advances have made it possible for employees to perform certain tasks remotely, instead of working from a designated office – on specific occasions, on certain days during a month, or even on a more permanent basis. Videoconferencing software, collaboration platforms, and cloud services keep people connected and allow them to perform their jobs and have meetings from anywhere.
In the frame of MET’s Remote Work Guideline, the company provides opportunities for full, partial and ad-hoc remote work and it is up to every MET employee and line manager to decide whether to use them. MET believes that remote work can lead to greater efficiency and to harmonizing work and private life needs in a better way, and hence it increases employee well-being and satisfaction.
The ability to attract and retain top talent is a key differentiator in today’s competitive business world: offering remote work can play a positive role in this area. MET Group views remote work as an important part of hiring and retaining top talent in the European energy sector.
