Posco introduces flexible working for new parents

Posco said Wednesday it is introducing a new work-from-home program to help parents with young children balance childcare and their careers.
The steelmaker said in a press release that the new program, starting July, will allow willing employees who want to work remotely or use flexible hours to do so for up to four years for parents with one child, or six years for two children.
The scheme is available for parents with children up to eight years old.
Parents can choose either to work a full eight-hour day, but remotely, or work reduced hours at whatever time of day is most suitable for them in line with the government flexible working hour scheme.
The company said it has been accepting employees’ applications prior to the program launch in July and that the same conditions will apply to those taking advantage of the program in terms of welfare benefits and promotions.
