How we work at Philips
Our newly-adopted hybrid work concept fuses flexibility with collaboration to deliver great outcomes for our people and our customers.
We are embracing an approach wherein we spend more time together than apart which for full-time employees translates to an average of at least 3 days working from the office and up to 2 days from home for our hybrid roles.
Hybrid work flexibility means people can meet the changing demands of work and home in the most balanced, productive, and healthy way.
Our hybrid working model is defined in 3 ways :
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.
We embrace flexibility : Choosing where, when and how to work can vary according to task and team schedules. Flexibility isn’t office or online, it means choosing the space that works best for you, your teams and our customers on a case-by-case basis.
We want to be at our best : The way we work and our workspaces are designed to support our well-being, offer career advancement opportunities, and enable us to be at our best.
