Flex Work

The COVID-19 Black Swan event has forced many businesses to rapidly embrace remote work. Now that many workers have experienced these benefits for the first time, the majority of workers would prefer to telework in some capacity – even if only part of the time.

Flex Work will not succeed if employees are simply provided with laptops and collaboration software and sent on their way. It requires a strategic approach that considers leadership, culture and process dimensions.

Flex work should extend beyond remote work. Research shows that work with components that are flexible in time and in space is the most conducive to successful outcomes.

Propulo was on the leading edge of implementing and advising on such implementations years before it became a must.

As we embrace the Future of Work, it’s key to focus on strategies to optimize Flex Work.

Moving beyond technology, Propulo helps design the future workplace.

Key facts
• 3 in 5 U.S. workers who have been doing their jobs from home during the COIVD-19 pandemic would prefer to continue to work remotely, as much as possible, once public health restrictions are lifted (Gallup, 2020).
• 56% of employees have a job that is compatible with flex work / where at least some of what they do could be done remotely (Global Workplace Analytics).
• A call center randomly assigned employees to work from home or in the office for 9 months. Those working from home experienced a 13% performance increase, more work satisfaction, and less turnover (Bloom, Liang, Roberts, & Ying, 2015).
