Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, millions of people have become more flexible about how and where they would like to work. In response to this trend, CompareHero, one of Malaysia’s leading platforms for financial products, announced its new policy to give employees greater flexibility and choice when it comes to their individual working arrangements!
With this new Flexible Working Policy:
- The company is permanently moving to a hybrid model, allowing employees to work up to 50% of the time from their homes, while still continuing to encourage face-to-face interactions in the office.
- The ability to work from ‘anywhere’ has been extended to all staff, with them now having the option to work from anywhere in the world, for up to 2 months per year.
- The new policy has been created based on learnings from COVID-19 experiences, direct feedback from employees and to reflect CompareHero’s culture of innovation and a people-first approach.
“While we start to welcome some sense of ‘normality’ back into our lives, we appreciate the fact that the overall environment has changed with COVID-19. This is yet another initiative we have put in place for our ever-growing diversified and global workforce.”Eu Jin Voon, General Manager of MoneyGuru (TH) & CompareHero (MY).
CompareHero is part of Hyphen Group, Asia’s leading online ecosystem for financial products. Across the Greater Southeast Asia region, Hyphen Group connects over 10 million unique users per month with over 3,000 products from almost 300 providers across Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia through its portfolio of brands (MoneyHero, SingSaver, MoneyMax, Money101, MoneyGuru, CompareHero, Seedly and eKos Connect).
Sam Allen, Chief Executive Officer of Hyphen Group, said “Our people-first culture has always shaped the environment we sought to create for our team and our approach to delivering value to everyone in our ecosystem. This is something that did not change during the pandemic. Our teams across our portfolio of brands went above and beyond to work seamlessly and drive a record period of growth across our businesses, all while working remotely. For this reason, we are accelerating our transition to become a fully hybrid workplace across our entire portfolio of brands.”
