Uponor Redefines Office Work with “Flexible First” Model

Uponor NA Headquarters

As companies continue to explore how to safely return office staff in a post-pandemic environment, Uponor North America is giving its office employees the flexibility to work their own way. The Apple Valley, Minn.-based PEX pipe manufacturer is introducing Flexible First, an employee-centric model that empowers staff to choose the working pattern that works best for them.

Flexible First offers three ways for office staff to work, called “personas”:

  • Resident – employees working in an Uponor office at least four days a week.
  • Hybrid – employees who may come into the office up to three days per week.
  • Remote – employees that work from locations that aren’t near an Uponor office.

The company built its Flexible First model after more than 100 hours of employee-led focus groups, panel discussions, and the development of a culture team. Using this data, the company established a multi-phased plan for introducing the future of office work at the company.

“As we plan for our post-pandemic world, it is essential to evolve with the changing times that are defining what the future of work looks like,” said Jen Hauschildt, vice president, Human Resources, Uponor North America.
