Weber Shandwick rolls out hybrid workplace model JUICE, includes increased benefits for home offices

Weber Shandwick has introduced a new approach to workflow innovation with its new program called JUICE.

The biggest aspect of this program is a permanent shift to a weekly hybrid model of 3 days in office and 2 remote (when it’s safe to be in the office).

Additionally, employees at director level and below will receive an allowance for home office needs and an expanded menu of benefits including discounts on things like meal prep, tutoring and homework help for kids, fitness and pet care; to be decided at a local level.

“Launching this hybrid model of working, is our way of being future ready. This will give us the flexibility while also allow us to thrive via personal interaction.” said Valerie Pinto, CEO, Weber Shandwick India 

Additionally Weber Shandwick also plans to roll out in the first quarter of 2021  technology and tools to drive collaboration, communication, accessibility and culture.

Gail Heimann, president & CEO, Weber Shandwick said, "The data on this is clear – work is going to look a lot different in a post-pandemic world. We want to embrace that and take the lead in establishing a workplace of the future.

Heimann added, "We’ve seen this year that we can thrive in a remote work environment. But we also crave being together and benefit from in-person interaction – particularly junior staff from a mentorship perspective. This hybrid approach is designed to capture the best of both worlds."
