Embrace Remote Work: The Future is Flexible

Elevate Performance and Well-Being with Hybrid Work Solutions

If Work Can Be Done From Anywhere, It Will Be — and Should Be

The rise of remote work during the pandemic fundamentally and permanently shifted the traditional workplace model, especially for jobs involving knowledge work. According to the Flex Index by Scoop, the number of companies requiring people to be in the office full time has dropped to less than a third, down from nearly half at the start of 2023. 

What’s emerging as the clear front-runner is hybrid work — with the latest reports showing that 64% of companies employ a workforce that is required to spend part of the week in the office or their employees are choosing to do so. This rapid acceleration of hybrid work is one of the six realities transforming business and driving significant decision points for leaders today.

What is the return on autonomy?

Employees with the ability to work a hybrid or fully remote schedule are much more likely to stay with their employer because they value the freedom to choose how and where they work. People who can work from home at least two days per week report:

  • Better mental and physical health
  • More work-life balance
  • Cost savings of $6,000 or more per year
  • Higher productivity and job satisfaction
  • Greater Happiness

Knowledge work is about collaboration - not a location.

We need to rethink how we invest in and structure “in-person” work to:

  • Foster “lore-creating moments” of in-person collaboration
  • Build deeper trust and strengthen communication
  • Design and share breakthrough learning experiences
  • Build boundary-expanding connections across teams and geographies
  • Strengthen shared purpose
