The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has placed flexible work arrangements, especially telework, in the spotlight. With many states issuing stay-at-home orders and allowing only essential businesses to keep their physical locations open, unprepared employers were forced to implement flexible work options on the fly. However, offering flexible work arrangements can involve a paradigm shift for organizations, especially smaller ones that may not have the critical mass of technology, budget, management and competitive flexibility necessary to make extensive use of flexible work arrangements. A flexible workspace provides everything that a traditional office does – from desks and chairs to phones, meeting rooms, and Internet connections – but arranged in a versatile manner. The layout and design focus on the needs of the modern workforce and can easily adapt to the demands of a user at any given time. These spaces are ready to support workers as their requirements change. Flexible workspaces are thus working their way into corporate consciousness. Flexi work in the technological era has become the new normal. Work from Home seems to be costly and troublesome but flexible work hours and location give employees a sense of empowerment, and better focus.
Even in the absence of a pandemic, flexible work arrangements can improve recruitment and retention efforts, augment organizational diversity efforts, encourage ethical behavior and help the organization's efforts to be socially responsible. Employers can experience cost savings, improved attendance and productivity, and an increase in employee engagement.
