BPM launches ‘virtual region’ working model

Edward Webb, partner of BPM, said it recognises the ‘transformation’ taking place in the way staff ‘want to work’ and its aim is to become ‘the most flexible workplace in the profession’

BPM has announced the launch of “virtual region”, an experience set to further its commitment to being an agile, competitive, and “best place” to work. 

The firm has said partner Edward Webb is set to be in charge of the virtual region, a response to its growth and the realities of the modern workforce. 

According to the bureau of labor statistics (BLS), the firm has said only 20% of United States workers are physical offices five days a week and as a result, the new virtual experience provides a means of “sharing information”, “facilitating collaboration”, and “offering leadership resources” to its hundreds of employees throughout the States.

BPM has said nearly 70% of its corporate service team leaders are in geographic regions where it does not have a physical office.

Jim Wallace, CEO, said: “Now is the time for open innovation. Our goal is to become the most flexible workplace in the profession. If the current pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that people are hardwired to connect. That’s why we’re looking to create a virtual region by design, not by default.”     

Rob Blasi, chief people officer, added: “By embracing a virtual work model, we’re working to ensure all of our colleagues have equal access to professional growth, regardless of where they’re located, while still fostering the in-person interactions that reinforce team building and cross-functional visibility.”
