Flexible Work Policy

Criteo WFH Philosophy

Criteo has always focused on maintaining a healthy work-life balance for all Criteos. We strongly believe that flexibility is essential to remain engaged, efficient, and productive.We acknowledge that working from home implies autonomy of our employees, mutual trust between the manager and employees, dialogue and transparency.
Therefore, based on those beliefs and our values OPEN, TOGETHER and IMPACTFUL we have developed our Work from Home policy:
  • OPEN: we are inclusive and consider the needs and wishes of all employees, we stimulate innovation through dedicated instances;
  • TOGETHER: we care for the well-being of all employees, we create new opportunities for employee collaboration;
  • IMPACTFUL: we involve the leadership to lead by example and inspire.

Criteo WFH Policy

So, how did we do it? Basically by understanding our employees’ diverse needs. We conducted a series of surveys (in which we had 93% participation rate)) during 2020 to understand the biggest challenges, needs and asks from our employees while working from home due to Covid19. In addition, we deep dived in the different locations where Criteo has an office, to better understand the feedback and input from employees and managers in such locations. Finally, we did an analysis of the best practices on the work from home and flexible working arrangements from companies similar to Criteo among a variety of locations.

Our main findings: · 94% employees wish to continue WFH in the future but they want a mix between WFH and WFO.

Flexibility is a key priority for our Criteos, as well as balancing the need to socialize and connect with our Culture and other Criteos. Our offices will continue to play a key role in the future, even if our ways of working and office dynamics will be changing. The result: a policy in which we encourage employees to work from home 2/3 days per week, while providing flexibility to accommodate different work from home patterns based on their need. Criteos will have the opportunity to connect with their colleagues and friends in our office spaces, by mixing WFH and WFO.
