Teleworking Agreement

14
Apr

Reasons for satisfaction!

In 2012 Amadeus introduced one day a week teleworking agreement to 38% of their work force.  

In 2021, armed with a better understanding of the teleworking benefits and constraints and with increased advances in technology, our goal was to negotiate teleworking agreement that is indicative of the geological, cultural make-up of Amadeus and times in which we live. An agreement that will maintain a good balance between the professional and private lives. 

The final Management proposal is more extensive than that of the general Amadeus groups’.  

This new agreement replaces all previous teleworking provisionsEmployees, including those already under the teleworking agreement at the time of the adoption, will benefit from the new agreement.

The teleworking policies of the new agreement as of 1 June 2021 :

1. Eligibility and Participation 

All employees, including the ones who already telework 1 or 2 days, will benefit this new agreement and apply if interested, except: Nurse, Librarian, Event Manager, Event Management Senior Manager, Event Management Even Specialist. Directors are also excluded of this agreement.

Deux nouveaux modes de télétravail :

  • « Hybride » : up to 3 days a week (open to all) 
  • « Full remote » 5 days a week, limited to Long-term contracts (CDI)it excludes team managers and maximum of up to 5% of the workforce (around 200 people maximum).

All employees taking part in the ‘’Hybrid’’, including Part-time employees and annualized part-time employees, must maintain at least two days of on-site presence. Combinations of half days of telework are possible. i.e. Half day of telework can be added to the unworked half-day when reporting in WTS to make up the 2 days of on site presence.
