It’s one of the biggest benefits our industry provides to our customers and their employees – flexibility. Study after study shows how small businesses are scoring big returns by taking off the workplace shackles and giving their employees more autonomy and freedom.
Even in this sluggish job market, attracting and retaining top talent is a challenge – especially for small businesses. Cornell University tracked 320 small businesses and the data revealed a direct correlation between business success and staff flexibility. A company experienced faster growth when flexible policies were in place. Companies also had a lower turnover rate than businesses with more stringent policies.
We came across an infographic that sums up all the benefits of a flexible workplace. It tells the story of how technology and a fresh approach to work where employees are measured by results rather than face time is helping businesses thrive.
