Fisher German introduces hybrid working policy

Fisher German has established a hybrid working policy to help colleagues maintain a positive approach to balancing work and home commitments.

As part of its pledge to prioritise health and wellbeing, the company — which has 26 offices across the UK — will allow team members to spend 60% of their time in the office and 40% working remotely, using its technology implemented as a result of the pandemic.

The announcement comes following a number of surveys, workshops and focus groups with colleagues over the past 18 months, with feedback highlighting that the majority of colleagues would like to have the option to work from home up to two days per week.

“Fisher German has always led the way when it comes to the wellbeing of our colleagues and, after the disruption of the last 18 months, we wanted to hear what matters most to them,” said Andrew Bridge, managing partner at Fisher German.

“We’ve proved that we have the tools in place to enable effective home working, but our colleagues also miss the social and collaborative nature of the office environment. 

“There will always be a place for physical office spaces in our line of work, but offering colleagues more flexibility is a no brainer if we want to attract and retain the best talent. 

“We trust our people to design their working week around their client commitments and team activities, utilising the spaces where they feel most productive on any given day.”

Maria Hawley, HR director at Fisher German (pictured above), added: “Our colleagues tell us that what motivates them is the empowerment to make their own choices. 

“They would like to have the flexibility to take a walk at lunch time with friends, have breakfast with their children instead of commuting to the office, or fit in an exercise class after work because they have more time.

“Offering colleagues a hybrid approach means they get the best of both worlds, and this ultimately leads to a happier, healthier workforce.”
