These flexible alternatives free up valuable time for you and your teams
Whether it’s at a coffee shop, a cabin in the woods or the office, where we work matters: 78% of knowledge workers want to be able to work from wherever they’re most productive.
But did you know that 95% of knowledge workers want flexibility in when they work?
Meetings are often the figurative ball and chain that dictate schedules. Even worse, a lot of these meetings aren’t that productive or efficient. A new survey found that employees spend an average of 18 hours a week in meetings. They say “no” to only 14% of invites even though they’d prefer to decline 31%, and those who do attend report multitasking 70% of the time. So it’s not surprising that begrudgingly going to meetings wastes $25,000 annually per employee—netting out to $101 million a year for organizations with 5,000 or more employees.
