The model, which was launched on August 6, 2021, is still in the works to be rolled out in Singapore according to local considerations, such as the situation of returning to work, said a spokesman for the HRO.

On August 6, 2021, 3M launched its Work Your Way model, which includes flexible on-site, hybrid and remote work options that give individuals the flexibility to work when and where they work best.

A spokesperson for the company gave an overview of this model to Human Resources Online, saying that the model can be implemented differently in each country depending on legal and regulatory requirements and does not override local labor laws that set specific working hours and / or working hours . or special breaks.

“In Singapore, our local implementation team is working with our HR and legal teams to implement this new model in line with local considerations such as labor laws and regulations, as well as the COVID-19 and return to work situation.”

About work your way

The spokesperson noted that this new model “is a significant expansion of 3M’s flexible working model since 2015 and reflects the experiences of remote pandemic work and employee feedback.

“The past year has changed the way we work and we have certainly learned a lot. We have offered remote work for non-production workers where possible and implemented robust security protocols in our factories, distribution centers, and other locations. According to an EY survey of over 16,000 employees worldwide, the vast majority appreciate the flexibility of where and when they work.

The trust-based model builds on a virtual-first mindset and prioritizes the contributions and results of employees, not their workplace. “At Work Your Way, flexibility is the standard – not the exception.

“Innovation, collaboration and integrity drive our success – regardless of where and how we work. We believe that working more flexibly will help us grow growth, hire and retain the best people. It will help us build stronger connections and better serve our customers and advance our culture. “

Currently, Work Your Way only applies to employees outside of production. The spokesman added: “3M continues to look for ways to make the production roles more flexible. We are grateful to our employees, especially the 50,000 people who work in our factories and distribution centers to manufacture and ensure our critical products. We will also be redesigning the workspaces to be more flexible and collaborative. “
