Give your workforce what they want — proactive communication, flexible work arrangements, safe workspaces, and a strong culture centered around wellbeing.
The restrictions in the wake of the global pandemic forced employers to evolve fast — dispersing teams to work from their homes. After a year of being forced into remote work options, employee preferences are shifting dramatically. They want flexibility in their workday.
This growing interest in flexible work arrangements is not surprising, as 80% of employees say meeting deadlines and getting their work done has been easy since moving to fully remote work.
Part of this fondness for working from home comes from hesitations about going back to the office.
The wake of the pandemic is leaving a lot of people still concerned about getting sick. But that’s not their only fear.
Worsening their work-life balance
Increasing their chances of getting sick
Decreasing focus on employee well-being
Having worse flexibility in their day-to-day work

“How working from home works out” Jun 2020
Working remotely for more than a year, it’s become clear that our employees have enjoyed the freedom of a more flexible work environment and are just as productive at home.
