Workplaces are catching up to the future. Meet the companies and individuals who are making it happen.

  1. Remote Team

    What Happened During Werk's First Remote Week?

    As a team, we were really eager to use this opportunity to test an extended team reprieve through location variety (especially since our research uncovered that DeskPlus is the most in-demand flex type). So how did the Werk team fare while fully distributed? As current research supports, everyone who took advantage of location variety experienced a spike in productivity, especially those whose jobs require a significant amount of head’s down "maker time."

    Here's What Employers Should Know About the "Right to Disconnect"

    "Right to disconnect" bills are wending their ways through local and national legislatures around the world, but despite their noble intentions, these proposed laws tend to be a "one size fits all" solution to employee burnout—one that might not respond to the individualized needs of employees. Structured flexibility, however, can implement the same boundaries while allowing for varying work schedules.

    If Flexibility Isn’t Part of Your Reboarding and Returnship Strategy, It Should Be

    Employee needs change over time, and parenthood is one of the biggest catalysts. Companies often assume employees returning from parental leave will be able to resume their work without complication, but many new parents often struggle to achieve work-life compatibility upon their return. This is where structured flexibility can prove vital: It doesn’t just attract top talent, it retains employees and empowers them to do their best work, no matter what changes come their way. Unfortunately, most companies today don’t have adequate reboarding strategies in place to help new parents return from leave, and even fewer incorporate structured flexibility as an integral component of that strategy.

  4. SITE When Employees Work Better, Companies Perform Better

    Forget Accommodation—Flexibility Is About Harnessing the Power of Your People

    We already know that structured flexibility helps parents, caregivers, and workers with chronic conditions and/or disabilities, but flexibility isn’t about granting accommodations to folks with special circumstances. At Werk, we’ve proven that everyone can perform better and more efficiently when given access to structured flexibility. And when the workday is tailored to employees’ unique skills and needs, it’s also companies who reap the benefits.

  5. SITE Flexibility Could Help People With Disabilities and Chronic Conditions

    Flexibility Can Help Close the Disability Gap and Foster Inclusion

    Add the disability gap to the long list of workforce disparities that we’re passionate about here at Werk. Like the gender pay gap and the generational talent gap, the disability gap is only exacerbated by lack of access to flexibility. But when flexibility is implemented—and in a structured way—these gaps start closing and inclusion starts improving.
