Flexible Working Arrangements are now part of life at Scania Australia as the truck maker strives to improve its employees’ work-life balance and job satisfaction.

While not everyone can work from home, Scania recognises that greater flexibility in rostering shifts, or working a nine-day fortnight might bring a greater degree of harmony to a young family where both parents are working full time, but have children who need to be collected from school or taken to extra-curricular activities. Or an employee can request adjusted start and finishing times, perhaps to allow time for further study.

Scania is committed to workplace diversity and inclusion which contributes to the many innovative ideas it develops together. Scania's Flexible Working Arrangements reflect its workforce: one-size does not fit all.

Scania is offering employees a set of options that helps them achieve more in every day. Scania believes these arrangements will create a great employee experience and an inclusive workplace where everyone can contribute in a healthy, stimulating and productive way, while working for one of the leading suppliers in the Australian transport industry.

When honing its Flexible Working Arrangements plan Scania was careful not to negatively impact the strong collaborative culture which the Swedish company says is one of its great strengths.

Scania sees the new arrangements offering additional horsepower to expand its footprint in Australia and support its drive towards a more sustainable transport system.

"We’re on a strong business growth path, and have added around 20% more employees in the past few years, and we are searching continually for high calibre people to join us," says Michele Gellatly, Scania Australia director of people and culture.

"Flexibility will enhance our attractiveness as a destination employer for ambitious and committed technicians, managers and sales team members."
