Headquarters’ team members will appreciate the implementation of a new way of working, which ensures a maximum work-life balance in the post-pandemic environment.
In today’s announcement, Brussels Airlines’ CEO, Peter Gerber, said,
“We see that our booking numbers are increasing and that the willingness to travel this summer is enormous. We have added an additional aircraft to our intercontinental fleet and are looking into additional capacity in Europe. Slowly but steadily we are growing out of this crisis and it is the right time to go for growth.”
Speaking specifically on the airlines’ new way of working in the administrative environment, Brussels Airlines’ Head of Human Resources and Change, Jan Ooms, said,
“We want to maximize flexibility and wellbeing for our employees and empower them to take ownership of their career, to choose how and where they work, based on the type of work that is required, like work that requires deep focus or meetings. This is different for everyone, there is no one size fits all, so we decided to not apply any rules on how much office time is required. A physical team meeting every week is required and for all other days it is up to the teams and individuals to decide whether physical presence is a must. The focus lies on the output one delivers rather than the amount of time they spend in the office. We are convinced that this makes us an even more attractive employer for talents as it allows for a better work-life balance and in the end, we believe, more efficiency.”
