Work-life Integration

In today's complicated world, there's no longer a typical working day. Family, sport, study or health priorities can all encroach on the traditional work life.

That's why we offer flexible work options which allow employees to make changes to the way they work and balance their work and personal needs. We recognise that our people are key to our continued business success. We believe in creating a workplace culture and environment in which our people can meet their professional and personal priorities, according to their individual needs and the needs of the business. IBM underpins its work/life vision with policies and programs to support our people.
