Best Workplaces™ names Bath Fitter as a 2022 Best Workplace for Hybrid Work
MONTREAL, March 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The COVID-19 pandemic changed lives around the world and particularly in the workplace, forcing businesses and employees to embrace a new way of working. Bath Fitter was quick to adapt, giving employees the option to work remotely from the very start of the pandemic and doing everything possible to facilitate this transition. Bath Fitter has now received recognition for its efforts to enable hybrid work from Great Place to Work®.
“We have seen increases in team productivity during the pandemic through the hybrid work approach,” explains Sophia Nardelli, Vice President, Human Resources. “It is also an arrangement that seems to work well for our staff, allowing them to combine focused work from home with collaborative work that is best facilitated by the office environment.”
Last Fall, with an eye on the post-pandemic world, Bath Fitter employees were surveyed about their desire to return fulltime to the office. “The overwhelming majority of employees wanted to continue with a flexible arrangement that allows them to choose the hours they work from home and at the office,” explains Nardelli. “We also recognized that this arrangement could be a big incentive for new employees so we have decided to continue the hybrid work arrangement indefinitely.”
“We recognize that the hybrid workplace has the potential to maximize staff productivity and engagement,” says Glenn Cotton (CEO and President). “We made the decision early on in this pandemic to make work flexibility a priority at Bath Fitter. We actively invested in the transition to hybrid work and are seeing the benefits. We see hybrid work as the future and we want to continue being the vanguard for this approach.”
Bath Fitter received the Hybrid Work honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®. The certification is based on Bath Fitter’s Hybrid Work Readiness Index and organizational workplace programs and practices that support and enable hybrid work, as determined by employee surveys conducted by Great Place to Work®.
