Flexible work policy

Definition

A piece of a workplace strategy unique to every company which outlines the terms around flexible working for its employees. Building out a flexible work policy requires a solid understanding of how your employees work, what types of environments they prefer, and what resources enable them to be their most productive. Gathering feedback directly from your people is a great place to start.

There are several arrangements for flexible working including:

In-office flexibility: Rather than the homogenous working environment many companies are used to (i.e. providing employees with only two places to work: a meeting room or a desk), instituting principles like activity-based work and adding different space types (i.e. lounges, cafes, phone booths, huddle rooms) allow employees to move around the office more freely based on what they're working on at any giving moment. Practices like hot desking give people the option to choose where they want to hunker down for the day, or hour, giving them the autonomy to work from wherever.

Remote work: A flexible work policy should address a company's views on remote work, who's allowed to work remotely, and how often. There are different types of remote employees including resident, flex, and mobile and depending on how many people fall into each category will help determine the appropriate balance of remote work.
