Thomson Reuters announces new and enhanced employee benefits to support work-life balance

Mary Alice Vuicic, Chief People Officer 

Thomson Reuters has always been a leader in work-life flexibility and we are committed to strengthening our leadership position in both flexibility and wellbeing.

The pandemic has had a profound impact on all of us as we have adjusted to new ways of working while balancing the needs of pandemic home life and work. We have heard from our colleagues that flexibility and support for time off have never been more important.  We understand that today, people are looking to fit work into their life, not their life into their work.

In 2021, we introduced a second global mental health paid holiday, we signed the Mindful Business Charter, and we announced permanent hybrid working arrangements for all our office-based employees.

This year, we are pleased to build on these initiatives with a new set of work-life flexibility offerings – Thomson Reuters Flex My Way - our supportive workplace policies which are the foundation of a positive work life balance. This includes three components:

  • NEW Work From Anywhere (in country) is a flexible working arrangement in which an employee can work from another location other than the Thomson Reuters office or their home office for up to eight weeks, provided the location is within their work country.
  • NEW Caregiver Paid Time Off provides 10 business days paid time off for employees who need to care for an immediate family member in the event of a serious medical condition that results from an injury or illness. 
  • ENHANCED Bereavement leave provides up to 10 business days paid time off for employees to grieve, attend funeral services, and take care of any personal matters related to the loss of an immediate family member and up to three business days paid time off for the loss of an extended family.

Flex My Way builds on our existing approach to supporting wellbeing and providing flexibility for our employees. While the program will evolve over time, this is our latest step to further empower our employees with flexible options to balance time away with their own performance. This is part of our relentless commitment to our people’s wellbeing – and to retain, grow and attract the best talent.
