Technology has transformed the way we live, so why not the way we work?
Our employees have varying responsibilities and priorities outside of work and the reality is that a fixed working routine doesn’t work for everyone. While striking a balance will mean different things to different people, ultimately it is essential to feeling healthy, supported and motivated each day.
Our approach to flexible working reflects both the way our people want to work and Capgemini’s values.
We’ve seen great results: the number of employees making use of flexible working options jumped from 61% (2016) to 78% (2019).

Here’s what Adele Every, VP – Innovate and Transform has to say about work life harmony at Capgemini:
It is eminently do-able to have a family and succeed at work.
This year, I celebrated my fourteenth anniversary at Capgemini. During my time here, I’ve progressed from Relationship Manager to Account Director, become one of Capgemini’s top Automation experts on Expert Connect to VP for Innovate and Transform – and had two children.
I’m often asked how I juggle it all.
The answer? Flexibility. Capgemini allows me to fit my working hours around my childcare requirements and work from home when I need to. The trust and flexibility afforded to me by the company has enabled me to balance my work and home life – and in return, I feel an immense loyalty to the organisation.
Bringing up children and progressing your career are not mutually exclusive: you can do both. Be open, honest and authentic about any challenges you face, seek flexibility in your working arrangements, work hard – and see the rewards.
