Many businesses may still be questioning whether to bring employees back on-site full time or adopt a more flexible work policy. It’s been shown that those taking a hardline approach with return-to-office plans risk losing valued talent. In fact, a survey by our company shows that 4 in 10 managers in the U.S. have lost staff due to their organization’s return-to-office requirements, and 1 in 5 feel the lack of remote work options is the main barrier to recruiting in-demand talent.
Other organizations, including Robert Half, are embracing flexible work as the way forward versus a passing phase spurred by the pandemic. Leading employers understand that flexible work options can provide staff with the autonomy and work-life integration they want, while helping the business meet its hiring and retention goals and grow its reputation as an employer of choice.
Flexible work involves putting people first
Robert Half is deeply committed to prioritizing people — so much so that we formalized and introduced a long-term work philosophy for employees worldwide to:
- Work where they will be most successful
