Amex Flex, American Express’ new way of working, is garnering strong satisfaction rates among our colleagues, according to recent surveys we conducted of our colleagues in both the US and UK. With Amex Flex, colleagues can work at home, in the office, or take a hybrid approach that combines both. Months into the launch of our new work model, 90% of respondents say they are very satisfied or satisfied with Amex Flex, and 87% of respondents feel supported in their career development.
“We are encouraged to see that Amex Flex is having such a positive impact on our colleagues’ lives, both personally and professionally,” says Monique Herena, Chief Colleague Experience Officer. “Across the survey results, it was clear that colleagues value our flexible culture and the support and tools available to help them grow their careers no matter where they’re working from.”
Our culture of innovation has earned us a place on Fast Company's 2022 list of Best Workplaces for Innovators. For this year's fourth annual list, American Express is being recognized for fostering a culture of innovation, making efforts to invest in colleagues, creating a culture where all employees feel empowered to innovate by embracing diversity and inclusion, and launching innovations from surprising sources in the organization.
One of those innovations was the creation and growth of the global education platform Business Class – all to help small businesses do more business.
We spoke to Clayton F. Ruebensaal, Executive Vice President of Global B2B Marketing at American Express, about how Business Class is meeting small business owners where they are today and how the team's dedication made it happen.
