Primark office staff to work flexibly
By Sophie Ladd | 23rd August 2021
Primark has announced that from September, workers in its office spaces will be able to return to the office. It is part of a hybrid model that will allow such staff to work from home two days a week and in the office three days.
The flexible working model will be tailored to each individual person's role requirements.
Lorraine Culligan, group director of people and culture at Primark told Drapers: "People are at the heart of everything we do at Primark, where creativity and collaborative working are key to our success,"
"We want to protect our great culture, support our people into the future and continue to innovate for our customers. Together, we have taken the learnings and insights from the last 18 months to develop a hybrid working model that gives us the best of both remote and in-person work, balancing flexibility with human connection and collaboration.
"We plan to implement this change for everyone from September, yet we are living in uncertain times, and we will continue to trial and learn for the foreseeable. We do not have a crystal ball, and the situation is continually changing however this new hybrid model is based on trust and will enable greater personal flexibility, allowing each colleague to blend working from home with working from their Primark workspace.
"This is a new way of working for us all. While cross-functional collaboration and informal conversations have always been important at Primark, how we utilise our office spaces will feel different from September onwards.
"We are fully committed to supporting our colleagues on their return to office-based work, while also continuing to support our fantastic store teams in over 395 stores across 14 markets, always keeping our customers at the centre of everything we do."
