Our new hybrid work model


Throughout the pandemic, our top priority has been our colleagues’ health and safety. For now, #TeamAmex is working from home until it’s safe to return to office. We are regularly evaluating global conditions, and when we feel the time is right, we will implement a new hybrid model of working. 


In designing our future hybrid work model, our aim is to combine the best of both worlds – recapturing the enthusiasm, camaraderie, and relationship building of working together in person, while also retaining the flexibility and progress we have made together in this virtual world. Most colleagues will work in a hybrid scenario, meaning a mix of days in the office and at home - specific arrangements will depend on business needs, the role, and personal preferences.
