From being a public company with almost ministerial structures to becoming an emblem of modernity. This is the path you intend to take Renfe with measurements like telecommuting, which came during the hardest part of the health crisis to consolidate itself. The company that presides Isaiah Tables has included remote work in its strategic plan as a way to accelerate digital and cultural transformation.
Your employees will be able to request it, voluntarily and reversibly, as of December 1 at any of the group’s subsidiaries. The condition for teleworking, as indicated by Renfe, is that the characteristics of the position and the functions of each worker allow it. The request must be expressly authorized and compatible with face-to-face work. The railway operator, which has reached an agreement on the matter with the union representation, thus joins the short list of large companies that have already regulated and implemented teleworking.
Renfe talks about a way to improve the reconciliation of the personal and work life of its workers, but it has also quantified savings: 7.5 million euros in the next three years. The management believes that acting with a hybrid model that makes remote work compatible with face-to-face work will lead to a greater efficiency, in addition to improving the worker experience.

The company has also stressed that its new model is based on “the commitment of the employee in the execution of their tasks”, assuming greater responsibility and high doses of organization.
The advance of teleworking, the company explains, will allow a new configuration of the spaces and forms of work in which the area responsible for Renfe’s Heritage is already working. The Technology division has also been involved in order to develop the digital workplace.
