Asda plans permanent move to hybrid-working at Leicester offices

Asda has confirmed it will introduce a permanent hybrid working model for office colleagues in Leicester once social distancing restrictions are lifted.

The new approach will encourage colleagues who work at George House in Leicester to select the best location to do their job in a day – this could be from home, the office or an alternative location such as a store or depot.

Under the new ways of working, colleagues will be expected to work from their office location when they have jobs that are better suited to an office environment such as team meetings, training and meeting with other colleagues. Equally, they have the flexibility to work from home when it is more productive to do so – such as tasks that involve planning or research.

Jacki Simpson, Asda Vice President of People Operations, said: “We have learned a great deal about working patterns during the last 16 months and have seen colleagues work productively across different locations. Having consulted extensively with them about future ways of working, we know they welcome the increased flexibility of remote working.

“However, they also acknowledge there is some work that is simply better done from the office, so as we move forward a hybrid working model is the right approach for our people and the business. We believe this approach will help us attract and retain the best talent and will continue to position Asda as an employer of choice.”
