Defining the Future of Flexibility at EnergyAustralia
Workplace flexibility at CLP is a business issue, helping CLP to attract and retain a more diverse workforce and complementing workplace digitisation initiatives.
In 2020, EnergyAustralia trialled a new workplace flexibility approach called “Energise”, providing employees with more choice on leave including choosing Public Holidays, offering two “Recharge Days” and removing the mandatory office closures.
Following the success of the trial, EnergyAustralia identified an opportunity to re-design work structures, providing teams with flexibility in how, when and where they work. "Energise" was re-launched in November, offering team-based protocols to flexible working. Under this approach, leaders are empowered to make decisions, balancing operational needs with the individual needs of their team members. Teams will develop their own "Energise" plans aligned to the guiding principles, considering flexible work solutions that work for customers and other stakeholders.
