Revolut staff now have permanent flexible working options

About 2,000+ of Revolut staff now get to choose when and how often they work from the office or work from their homes.

With that Revolut is also repurposing the Revolut offices as “flexible collaborative spaces” called Rev Labs and “70% of each one will be dedicated to collaboration and teamwork”.

The new offices of the company that will be opening in the near future will also be labeled as new Rev Labs. According to Revolut, these flexible working spaces will also help in terms of “rapid headcount growth”.

Revolut reported that 98% of staff claims they had adapted well to the changes of working conditions and that 90% of team leaders said performance hadn’t changed. However, 65% of staff also said they would enjoy the opportunity to come into an office sometimes.

Jim MacDougall, VP of people at Revolut said: “Our people have told us that they really love the better balance they’ve achieved by working from home. But they said they missed colleagues and the chance to collaborate face to face on key projects and to balance the convenience of home with the camaraderie of the office.”

“Rev Labs offers everyone the best of both worlds. We’ll be completing the flexible working policy over the coming months, to be attractive to our current colleagues and the hundreds who will be joining us as we grow around the world,” he added.

The company told Siliconrepublic.com that it has almost 460 vacancies around the world at the moment, 16 of which are in Ireland.
