Alcatel-Lucent France, a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent, has signed a company-wide agreement to promote home telecommuting with all the unions within the company.
The agreement enables employees of the different units and sites of Alcatel-Lucent France to work from home one or two days a week if they wish. This is dependent upon their activity being eligible for telecommuting.
Several trials have been conducted since 2003 at sites in the Paris area prior to the instigation of the agreement. It will progressively be implemented site by site in France throughout 2016.
The agreement makes every telecommuter an ambassador of his or her own Alcatel-Lucent products and solutions.
Broadband technologies will enable employees to improve their work/life balance through greater flexibility in how to organise their work. In addition, home telecommuting is in line with Alcatel-Lucent’s actions in favour of sustainable development, among others by contributing to reducing polluting emissions, in particular by limiting the travel of its employees in the Paris region of Ile-de-France.
