The new shape of work is flexibility for all 


COVID-19 forced employers and employees to experiment with flexible working. The success of flexibility has opened employers’ eyes to their workforce’s adaptability. 

Flexibility works


How do you know if a role is suited to remote working? Determining which jobs can flex is a good first step. But flexibility is about more than just where or when to work. Learn how flexible work can lead to increased engagement, higher performance and expanded access to talent.



Before the pandemic, executives believed only 45% of the workforce was adaptable to a new world of work. Of course, COVID-19 has now shattered that belief. Today, over 90% of employers say productivity has stayed the same or improved with employees working remotely.

Protect employee well-being


Meaningful benefits are those that truly benefit. Addressing a diverse workforce’s emotional, physical and financial needs can be challenging, but the advantages — including enhanced employee well-being and talent attraction — are undeniable. 



43% of employees want their employers to foster a more “pro-health” environment.

Mobility as a function has evolved dramatically over the past ten years, during which time its focus has shifted gradually from service delivery to a strategic advisory capacity. Today we think of mobility as a part of business that goes beyond moving employees’ location. It manages moves across organizations, industries, professional areas, and is even moving jobs to people. In order to live up to customers’ and business stakeholders’ expectations, however, it is critical that the mobility function has a strong understanding of the talent agenda.
