In a great article appearing in the recent CoreNet Leader Magazine my colleague Gagandeep Singh along with Nadia Orawski (both with Deloitte Consulting) discusse the latest iteration of “flexible work.” This much discussed form of workplace function is now maturing and able to be implemented. I think Gagan correctly diagnoses that much of corporate America has not adopted Alternative Workplace initatives because internal project leaders are focused on a specific project as opposed to sustained organizational change. In order for flexible work to actual be possible in scale, real estate, HR, IT and senior management must all be on the same page. Then, execute!
If you have a flexible workplace program you would like to highlight here, please let us know.
