Frequently asked questions
How often can you work from home and how often must you be in the office?
How often you come into the office or work from home is decided between team members and their managers. These team agreements are a great way to collaborate and figure out the schedule that works the best for everyone on the team.
When you come to the office, do you have to stay for the whole day?
No, partial days can be spent in the office (e.g. coming in for a half-day working session).
When you aren’t in the office, are there any core hours that you have to be online?
According to our Employee Handbook, core working hours are between the hours of 10am and 4pm. Exceptions can be discussed with the manager and HR depending on individual needs.
Can I work from home 100% of the time?
At Booking.com, our offices are a special part of our DNA and we will never be a fully remote company. Face to face connection and collaboration play an important role in our culture. While Booking.com has a hybrid approach, we want to encourage you to come to the office where it works best for you and the team. Therefore we implemented team agreements to facilitate this.
Can I work from from a location other than my home or office location?
An employee’s place of work will continue to be their assigned Booking.com office, unless otherwise agreed. Additionally, the employee’s main work from home location must be within a commuting distance of their assigned Booking.com office.
In addition to the above, our Working from Abroad policy allows for working from a different country for up to 20 days per calendar year as long as your request meets the conditions of the policy (e.g. legal right to work in a country & no tax or social security consequences for you or the company).
