We are in the process of updating this website to reflect the new FlexWork program. For more information about the FlexWork program, refer to the UCOP FlexWork program all-staff message and the UCOP FlexWork Program FAQ.

UCOP has evolved to a hybrid organization with on-site, hybrid, and remote workers. Being a hybrid organization is new for us as it is for many organizations. In the coming months and next few years, we will continue to evolve as we learn how to make this new way of working support the optimal functioning of the organization and flexibility and balance for our employees.
