In 2005, Corporate Voices published the original “Business Impacts of Flexibility: An Imperative for Expansion,” a ground-breaking report which compared internal business data from 29 companies to find that the business benefits of flexibility were real, and were only partially realized. Corporate Voices has updated and re-released this report, in which we continue to document the business benefits of workplace flexibility, as well as its growing role as a strategic business imperative for domestic and global enterprises. Although there is a proven business case for flexibility, many workplaces still don’t offer flexible work options to all their employees. As demographic and economic trends heighten the need for effective work and family solutions, there is still a clear need for action to expand flexibility within the business community. Read the updated version of Corporate Voices’ “Business Impacts of Flexibility” to see what concrete steps we propose in our “Call to Action” to keep moving flexibility forward.
