Hybrid Work Schedule

As we safely return to the office, we have embraced hybrid work schedules.

Our people are encouraged to work in the office with some remote days. We’ve identified the ‘sweet spot’ for daily team connections and we play and meet together in that space, leaving the rest of the day to work autonomously and productively, alone or with others.
