How Flex Work Is Impacting Business Collaboration
Contrary to predictions otherwise, many companies still marginalize flex work as a fleeting trend, oblivious to the direct impact it’s already made on businesses everywhere. The ability to work where you want and when you want is now a necessity for all types of workers—workers in the field, business travelers, employees catching up after office hours—pushing workplace technology to support new levels of mobility and flexibility.
Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight
Envisioning what the future workplace will look like is always exciting for us here at SCG. The survey results mentioned in this article, predicting 73% of work will mostly take place from remote locations by 2050, reinforces our belief that companies will continue to seek out ways to offer mobility and flexibility to their employees in coming years.
But what will that look like? Will almost everyone have a home office? Perhaps. Or perhaps we will see a continued surge in the popularity of Coworking spaces such as WeWork. One thing is for certain: technology will play an enormous role, as it does already. Websites and programs that allow for collaboration across great distances by distributed employees are almost sure to become more mainstream (for examples, see the 21 Tools That Will Help Your Remote Team Work Better Together).
