Work from Anywhere: where have our teammates been working?

We are committed to creating a flexible environment that supports not only how and when our employees work but also where they work. Work from Anywhere is a flexible work arrangement that allows teammates to work in a different location for up to eight weeks per year, with up to four of those weeks in another country.

Over the past year, our teammates have worked in some remarkable places. Whether visiting family and friends, soaking up the sun by the pool or beach, or hiking through a national park, we’ve heard some incredible Work from Anywhere stories. Continue reading to learn how our teammates across the globe have been using the Work from Anywhere benefit. 

Joan, Analyst – Global Trade Content

Destination: Manila, Philippines

“As a mom, I want to spend as much time as I can with my toddler. With our Work from Anywhere program, I can be present with my family and at the same time, I can deliver key results at work. This program has been great for my work-life balance and wellbeing. As you can see in the photo, my daughter is enjoying the pool while I work with a calming view. It is with great privilege that I get to experience this benefit.”


Nikhila, Talent Acquisition Analyst

Destination: Indiana, United States

“It had been three years since I had seen my sister, and I had never met her twins, my niece and nephew, because they were born in December 2020. I traveled from India to the United States and experienced my first snowfall and first-time tobogganing in Columbus, Indiana. Our Work from Anywhere program enabled me to re-bond with my family while still working. It was great visiting and spending time with my nephews and niece for the first time.”

Desiree, Executive Assistant to the Chief People Officer

Destination: Mumbai, India

“One of the many reasons I wanted to join Thomson Reuters was the company’s Work from Anywhere policy. I was able to enjoy an extended Christmas break with my parents and siblings in Mumbai, India. My manager was accommodating and encouraged me to adjust my hours to local time zones to ensure I could balance work and spending time with my family. I will always treasure these memories – and the delicious Mumbai street food.”


Emily, Associate Product Marketing Manager

Destination: Seattle, United States

“My husband and I took our dog, packed the car, and drove from Minneapolis to Seattle. We spent four weeks exploring the Pacific Northwest, hiking in the mountains, and traveling along the coast. I was able to shift my typical work hours to accommodate the time change, and my manager encouraged a flexible work schedule during our trip.”


Laura, Director, Leadership Development

Destination: Valencia, Spain

“This week I have worked flexibly from Valencia, Spain. This benefit has allowed me to support my son in his baseball endeavors and keep things moving along at work. Personal meets professional life for the win. Thankful to work with an organization that not only prioritizes work-life balance but also makes room for it.”



Bryce, HR Consultant

Destination: Arizona, United States

“One of my favorite things about working at Thomson Reuters is the flexibility. Last week, I took advantage of our Work from Anywhere benefit to spend a week in Arizona to visit my sister and brother-in-law. It was the best experience to balance work and family without taking vacation. Work during the day, visit at night, and relax with a long holiday weekend.”


Marcela, HR Business Partner

Destination: Seattle, United States

“A few weeks ago, I tried out Thomson Reuters Work from Anywhere policy, which allows employees to work out of the country for up to four weeks each year! I traveled from Mexico to Seattle to meet my beautiful newborn niece for the first time. I never imagined being able to visit my family in the United States and continue with my work!”



Erik, Jr. User Experience Designer

Destination: Michigan, United States

“It’s been a wonderful two weeks working among the trees from the comfort of my pop-up camper in the Waterloo State Recreation Area in Michigan. I’ve spent my time designing in Figma and collaborating over teams during the day, then exploring the coastline of Western Michigan in the evening. This trip to Michigan has been both productive and inspirational; I can’t wait for my next Work from Anywhere adventure!”


Jacob, Sr Employer Branding Specialist

Destination: Alberta, Canada

“I traveled across Canada, flying from Ottawa to Calgary, to spend the week with friends. Moving from Eastern to Mountain time, my manager encouraged me to adjust my working hours for the week, ensuring I had the flexibility to enjoy my time away from work while in Calgary. Some of the highlights of my trip included hiking at Lake Louise, visiting the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, swimming in the Banff Upper Hot Springs, and attending the world-famous Calgary Stampede.”
