Fear, uncertainty and the feeling of loneliness were the emotions that Spaniards experienced the most during confinement, so learning to manage these situations has become one of the most effective solutions to guarantee our well-being.

To reinforce mental health and safety, as well as to reduce the levels of anxiety and stress that are increasingly present in society, companies such as HEINEKEN Spain have developed health programs focused on addressing physical, emotional, professional and social problems of your employees.

For greater work-life balance and flexibility, smart working

The pandemic has also meant a before and after in companies in face-to-face matter. Thanks to teleworking, an activity that seems to have come to stay in many companies, many employees work even more from home, which means not getting to disconnect.

With the aim of offering greater flexibility and guaranteeing the reconciliation of personal and professional life, HEINEKEN Spain has implemented its own model of smart working. What does it consist of? It is a hybrid modality with which each employee can telework 64 hours a month and distribute them as you prefer, from a few hours a day to full days, but always within the established business hours. This customization, which adapts to the needs of each person, also positively influences their productivity. So much so, that 9 out of 10 employees claim to be more productive after the implementation of this work system.

In addition, it has launched different disconnection measures for digitization to help your employees be better connected, but not always. Among them we find its Digital Wellbeing program or the “green time” initiative, which marks the end of the working day by limiting the sending of mobile messages or emails.

All these services focused on the well-being of people have been very well received by the employees, which has generated a better work environment and a greater sense of commitment and belonging to the company. A great success for a company that considers enjoyment an essential part of its business. Demonstrating that HEINEKEN Spain, in addition to producing great beers, is a company that works by and for people.
