British Airways joins rush to expand remote working

British Airways will let staff split their working lives between the head office and home in another example of big firms offering flexible employment.

"In a separate statement to the BBC, BA said on Thursday:"The global pandemic has shown us that many of our colleagues enjoy working remotely and want to continue, and this has accelerated our approach to offering more agile and flexible ways of working. "Our aim is to find a hybrid working model that suits our business, blending the best of office and remote working for our people. We've also re-structured our business to emerge from the crisis and are considering whether we still have the need for such a large headquarters building." The Nationwide building society has indicated that it does not intend to force people to return to the office if they have been successfully able to work from home during the pandemic.
