'Rabo@Anywhere' is the way of working at Rabobank in the Netherlands. The benefits of working from home combined with the benefits of working at the office. You make a conscious choice for the location. At home, in a RaboHouse or, for example, at a customers place. Working digitally remains the starting point, in addition to days of choices to go to a RaboHouse for your work. We keep the focus on our customers and work on our mission and the cooperative, but with more flexibility in where and how you work.
Why do we choose for Rabo@Anywhere?
Rabo@Anywhere brings together the advantages of working from home with those of working in an office. This supports our business strategy:
- Excellent client focus: We can better serve our clients through a more flexible and digital way of working.
- Meaningful cooperative: We reduce our carbon footprint and thus contribute to a sustainable society.
- Rock-solid bank: We are helping to reduce costs, which is necessary to keep the bank future-proof.
- Empowered employees: With working hybrid, we contribute to being an attractive employer and to the sustainable employability of our employees.
Working digitally (wherever you are) remains the starting point for colleagues based in the Netherlands, in addition to days on which you consciously choose to go to an office (RaboHouse) for your work and to meet colleagues, customers or guests. We are keeping the focus on our customers, our mission and the cooperative, but with more flexibility in where, how and with whom we work. At home, at the office, anywhere!
The basic principles of Rabo@Anywhere
1. Digital first
Digital first means that the work that you can do more productively and efficiently digitally, you actually do digitally. As an employee, this gives you more autonomy and flexibility in how, when, and where you perform your work. Individually and together. Of course, you can also work virtually in the office. In which we continuously experiment with the resources we need and have available.
2. Plan team time together
You schedule time to spend with your team. Discuss with your team and manager how often and for what purpose you want to meet physically. Team building, starting a new project and creative brainstorming often go better in a physical meeting. You can also work together to learn from each other on the job. Also consider your team’s strategy and activities and your personal performance and wellbeing.
3. Plan time to meet others
Much of what we do and how we work as a cooperative is based on chance interactions. A random meeting at the coffee table, finding like-minded people in our communities (e.g. Jong Rabo, the Product Owner community) and physically experiencing our mission and values. You can come together, build your network and participate in communities. This is how we build the cooperative together.
