flexible work

creating effective programs

The flexible work experiment, triggered by the global pandemic that caused cities to shut down and companies to move non-essential employees to a remote working structure seemingly overnight, has created urgency for companies to establish what flexibility will look like moving forward. Many are accelerating the transition to a more flexible work experience for employees as they see the value to both the individual and the business.

As you consider a more permanent flexible work program, thoughtful planning and adaptability are essential. Your company’s perspective and your employee’s expectations are still evolving so you’ll want to be conscious of decisions made for short-term flexibility versus a sustainable, long-term plan.
