Flexible working approach

We’re committed to promoting a healthy work-life balance and we want to encourage our people to work in a way that supports their commitments both in and outside of work. In the spirit of our Be Brilliant and Be Human values, we trust our people to manage their time in the most effective way.
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Employee benchmarking score
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"Like Flexa, I also consider that work and life are intrinsically linked. Therefore, I always aimed to be in a company that values me, my work and my well-being... FARFETCH is an innovative and people-centred company capable of supporting its employees throughout the changes in their lives." Internal Communications Specialist at FARFETCH
What do we think of FARFETCH?
With such an autonomous culture that truly encourages work-life balance, FARFETCH is one of my favourite flexible companies. As well as their fab flexibility, they are trailblazers in the luxury retail space, and I think that FARFETCH is perfect for anyone looking for a professional challenge in a company that wants to help them to grow.
