Global research reveals flexible working matters to employees


At the start of 2019, we gathered the opinions of more than 15,000 business people across over 100 nations. We asked them about the key drivers for flexible working, how it’s being used by international businesses, and what perceived obstacles to introducing and increasing it still remain. The results show there’s a major power shift towards the employee – they now have more input on how they work, and where they work. And businesses that understand this see boosted productivity, higher talent retention, and greater agility.
