Flexible Working Environment

As per recent research publications [1,2,3], the nature of the construction industry has a negative impact on the physical, mental and emotional well-being of employees due to its strong culture of long working hours, strict deadlines, and critical paths involving large design teams. As part of its work-life flexibility program, Sotera has introduced flexible working arrangements including work-from-home and rostered days off (RDO).

Sotera’s program aims to maintain the mental well-being and work-life balance of its employees which implies enhancement of positive emotions, sense of purpose, and being an employer of choice. With that in mind, the company will continue to provide the highest level of innovative fire engineering services to its clients making sure consistent engineering resources are allocated to their projects at all times.
