Based on extensive research on emerging workplace strategies, we have developed a number of models that can quantify the economic, environmental, and societal potential of flexible workplace strategies such as:
- Office hoteling
- Desk sharing
- Activity-based work settings
- Executive offices/co-working
- Open floorplans
- Flex options:
- Compressed workweek
- Job sharing
- Part time work
- Flex time
Our research has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Washington Post, and hundreds of other publications.
Our models have been used by U.S., U.K., and Canadian organizational and community leaders to quantify the extent to which workplace flexibility can:
- Save money
- Reduce work-life conflict
- Increase employee engagement
- Increase employee loyalty and reduce turnover
- Reduce absenteeism
- Increase productivity
- Reduce healthcare costs
- Reduce greenhouse gases and petroleum usage
- Reduce highway congestion and traffic accidents
- Improve disaster preparedness

It allows us to model the impact of a wide variety of alternative workplace strategies for public and private sector employees.
