Deloitte India is a young company – over 85 per cent of its employees are millennials – and over the past couple of years, the consulting company has been trying to understand what they want. “They need to have a voice on the table,” says S.V. Nathan, Partner, Human Resources, Deloitte India. Leading the wish-list was flexible work hours, which led to the launch of a programme called ‘My Flex’. It allows the employee any-time work (as long as they are available during the core hours of between 10.30 am and 4 pm), and the option to work four days a week. “Our millennial employees want that kind of flexibility. You can work as many hours, on whichever days you wish, as long as you serve your clients and make sure they are alright with it,” says Nathan.
