What Does Workplace Flexibility Mean Today?

Workplace flexibility has become increasingly important to workers who want the chance to have a meaningful career and family life. Young people don’t prioritize making money solely; they want time with their families and to do the things they enjoy. Workplaces are evolving because the internet has made it possible for staff members to work from anywhere and in response to the changing needs of the emergent millennial workforce.

Companies that want to hire the best and the brightest can embrace a new, modern and more flexible workplace culture that gives staff members the freedom they are looking for while maintaining company productivity at the highest level. Workplace flexibility in companies that have embraced new trends can mean:

  • Allowing employees to work from home. Many companies now permit staff members to work from home, at least part of the time. This saves companies money on office space, saves employees from wasted time commuting and helps the planet. Staff members can be just as productive when they are given the opportunity to work in a place that makes the most sense for them.
  • Allowing employees flextime. Flextime is possible in many industries and gives staff members the chance to set a schedule that works for their needs. Employees can get their jobs done much more efficiently when they aren’t worried about who is taking care of their sick child or feeling guilty about missing a school play — and they are much more likely to stay with a company that allows them to achieve their desired work/life balance.
  • Providing personalized workplace benefits packages. Companies are providing different perks and benefits for staff members, compared to traditional benefits packages. Some companies allow staff members to customize the kinds of benefits they opt for, choosing from health insurance or other perks if their spouse has a better plan at work. Companies may also do away with traditional sick days and personal days and just give staff members time off to take as they need.
