We’ve just been through a recession. In past recessions what has happened is that employers have tended to cut the fat as they say, a euphemistic word for firing people. And they’ve seen that doesn’t work.
So during this recession we saw that employers didn’t cut back on flexibility 81 percent. They kept the flexibility that they had. Only 6 percent cut back on it and 12 percent increased it. There is a desire to create a better workplace among small, midsize and large companies. It’s not just the big corporations that we talk about in the news.
There’s a desire to create a workplace that’s more resilient. We talk about people being more resilient. We need to create more resilient and innovative workplaces because the competition is fierce out there in 21st century.
