Pinterest to give employees more freedom over where they want
Staff working for photo-haring social media platform, Pinterest, can now spend up to three months working outside of their country of employment in any given 12-month period. The perk is an extension of its popular ‘PinFlex’ employee incentive program, and it was made available to all full-time staff (with a minimum of six months’ service), from the start of July. In a statement, Pinterest said: “We listened to feedback shared by employees and added this flexibility to empower everyone to do their most impactful and inspired work.” It added: “Our Pinners are global, and we know that having worldly perspectives in our company to support them – both at the technological level and the human level – will enable us to deliver on our mission to bring everyone the inspiration to create a life they love.” Those with less than six months’ service aren’t totally excluded. They’ll be able to work outside their country of employment for up to 30 days a year.
