Updating flexibility strategies

At a glance

Employees with access to flexible work arrangements (FWAs) tend to be more satisfied, committed and engaged with their jobs, which leads to increased innovation, quality, productivity, and growth.

Newer generations of the workforce have emerging values and perceive their employment and careers differently than previous generations.  This means that companies must adjust not only the organization and delivery of work, but the way the work gets done, how the organization collaborates and communicates, and ultimately, the degree to which employees are engaged.


Studies have shown that employees with access to flexible work arrangements (FWAs) tend to be more satisfied, committed and engaged with their jobs, which leads to increased innovation, quality, productivity, and growth.  The benefits can go far beyond work-life balance improvements. They can give companies the ability to fundamentally change the way work gets done
