Equinox, Life Time Fitness and other health clubs are carving out larger workspaces for their members.
Bank lobbies, hotel lobbies, and now fitness centers are getting into the alternative office space/co-working business.
Plenty of surveys show how much employees want the option to work from home at least part of the week. Yet not all managers are on board. Here's why ... and why they should rethink their concerns, say flexible workplace experts.
Companies like Dell, Aetna, SAP and many others are adopting remote work in a big way and they're reaping the benefits. It's not about telecommuting, or mobile work, or whatever you want to call it, it's just the way employees of leading companies are working.
Organizations should stop looking at workplace flexibility—which includes telework—as a benefit, perk or accommodation, and instead start looking at it as a strategic way of attracting, retaining and engaging employees.
This is not to say everyone should, could, or wants to work remotely. And it doesn't mean no one ever goes to an office. The critical issue is that employees crave a choice over where and when they work. And when they get what they want, they are more engaged, productive, loyal, and even healthy. If that's not an argument for flexibility as a strategic advantage, I don't know what is.
