  • TOTVS will make the work flexible for more than seven thousand of its ten thousand employees in the post-pandemic period;
  • In the new format, most employees will alternate between in-person work at the company’s offices and remote work;
  • Other professionals will be exclusively remote.

Brazilian technology giant TOTVS has announced that it will adopt a flexible work model after the COVID-19 pandemic. In the new format, most employees will alternate among some days of the week remotely, and others in the office. Other employees will remain on a remote-only model.

“We are at the ideal moment to keep the innovations and reinventions that have enhanced our ways of working recently, but with the gain of having back the possibility of interaction and the collaborative atmosphere that we only have when we share the same environment. Finding that balance in the hybrid model is key,” said Dennis Herszkowicz, president of the company.

The company said it will keep the health protocols in face-to-face moments in its offices, even though the resumption is expected only in the post-pandemic phase.

During the release of the financial results of this year’s first quarter, TOTVS recorded a 31% increase in profit and reached BRL 80.65 million, with a boost from client gains in software subscriptions and services such as cloud computing.
