Companies move towards hybrid models of remote and in-person work

Teleworking is no longer mandatory in most municipalities on Monday, due to the evolution of the pandemic, but there are large companies that are considering maintaining the regime, especially with hybrid models, shows a query made by Lusa.

EDP ​​says that, since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic, in March 2020, it activated a contingency plan that included “keep as many employees as possible in all services in a telework regime”, says an official company source .

In this way, he adds, EDP had a teleworking regime of 72% of workers worldwide and 79% in Portugal.

The company claims that it will continue to follow the recommendations for telework “whenever possible” and that, in a post-pandemic scenario “and in line with EDP’s future work model, a new hybrid work model will be tested”.

This hybrid model will consist of a “Rotary and flexible system that combines face-to-face and remote work, allowing employees with compatible functions to perform up to two days a week in remote work”, specifies EDP.

REN – Redes Energéticas Nacionais also says that in the future it will “possibly” adopt a hybrid regime for “many functions”, which goes for “a few days” in remote work, “resulting from the compatibility of the requirements of each function with the convenience of each employee”.
