Publicis’ roughly 85,000 global employees will soon be able to book work exchanges through the group’s AI-powered platform, Marcel.
Starting in 2022 Publicis Groupe will allow every employee to work from any accessible country where the Groupe is present for up to 6 weeks a year.
“We know the pandemic isn’t over, and we know that the world could close again at any time,” said Arthur Sadoun, global Chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe.
“But that’s not a reason to close our horizons and perspectives. We will continue to move forward, because one day this crisis will come to an end and because we owe it to our people to make their professional and personal experience at Publicis truly unique.”
The initiative, called “Work Your World” will allow employees to:
- Browse local and global destinations, uniquely selected for them by Marcel’s intelligence, in over 100 countries where Publicis has offices.
- See dynamic updates on accessible countries and locations, with information on local health and business regulations, to take the necessary measures and precautions before travel.
- Find accommodation through Home Swap Home, a feature open exclusively to the Publicis community, which enables our people to share and swap accommodation with colleagues.
- Connect with other employees in different countries, via Marcel’s profile intelligence, to discover what it’s like to live and work in a given location the best time to go, and more.
- Access a dedicated 24-hour contact center, to receive real-time support from experts for questions related to travel, health regulations, visas, and work permits.
- Participate in the Work Your World community, a network established by our people for our people.
“Our people have been incredibly resourceful despite the limitations of the pandemic,” said Carla Serrano, global CSO of Publicis Groupe.
“They deserve to work for a company as resourceful as they are. Work Your World can help every Publicis employee “work their world” in a bigger, better, and brighter way thanks to our scale, diversity and Marcel.”
