Study finds benefits in flexible work program at Fortune 500 company
Sunday, May 11th, 2014
A research team worked with 700 salaried employees of an IT department. Half of the group worked within the status quo and the other half were part of a flexible work program.
Kate Lister’s insight:
I’m so glad to see some real research emerging on the topic of workplace flexibility! The bottom line: Yes, flexibility helps employees reduce work-life conflict. No, they don’t work longer hours as result of flexibility. A key point here is that training was a fundamental ingredient in remote work success.
