MAPFRE has implemented a flexibility system in Spain with 125 hours of voluntary remote work per quarter. This will enable employees to organize their working day according to their needs, while the company gains in agility and efficiency.
When it comes to people management, a key aspect in adapting to the new reality arising from the pandemic is flexibility — the need to change and move towards more flexible labor relations — because this is what our professionals, our customers, and our business need.
Just as we were beginning to glimpse the end of the pandemic, Elena Sanz, Group Chief People Officer, said that we should “opt for flexibility in work time and move towards a global hybrid model, because the more flexibility you give people, the more grateful they are, as they can design their lives however they like.” At MAPFRE, her words translate into time becoming more valuable.
MAPFRE’s new hybrid remote work model is a pioneering system of flexibility that enables employees to organize their work day according to their needs.
Accordingly, MAPFRE has implemented a hybrid model of remote work in Spain, which establishes new mechanisms to move toward a more flexible organizational model. This will allow MAPFRE to gain in agility and efficiency while offering even greater service to our customers.
MAPFRE’s new hybrid remote work model is a pioneering system of flexibility that enables employees to organize their work day according to their needs. How? With an allowance of 125 remote work hours each quarter, which MAPFRE professionals in Spain will be able to use as needed. This allowance may be enjoyed on an hourly or daily basis at the employee’s discretion. To improve flexibility, the new model includes other innovative measures, such as taking a break during the work day in addition to lunch and respecting the amount of in-person work, if remote work is done by the hour, or the option of two full days a week of remote work if done by the day, until the maximum of 125 hours has been used up.

In addition, remote work can be done at a second residence for even greater flexibility, although employees must ensure they have adequate connectivity to complete their work while remaining in compliance with occupational risk prevention measures.
With this new hybrid model of remote work, which employees in Spain can begin enjoying on October 1, MAPFRE once again demonstrates its willingness to adapt to the changes and opportunities of the new social reality, inspired by our purpose of taking care of what matters to people.
