To keep and attract talent, all companies will need to have a policy with best practices to accommodate work flexibility.

Research has clearly shown that for most employees who have any type of remote work arrangement, they:

  • Met their goals more reliably
  • More productive
  • Happier
  • Healthier
  • Experienced less stress

Companies have also benefited greatly — with increased productivity, talent retention, and lower overhead.

We all recognize that the latest advances in technology have disrupted many industries; but we haven’t fully recognized the disruption to how and where we work, as well as how we will manage people. All companies will need to adapt to flexible work arrangements, find and keep talent, and learn to manage people without borders. New employee generations will expect it and because we are living longer, so will older employee generations, as they will work beyond the historical 65-year retirement age. The future work paradigm will be “the right work with the right person can be done from anywhere”.
