Nearly two-thirds of employees say it’s important that their company culture encourages flexible working. But flexible policies tend to be limited to when and where people can work. A framework for workplace flexibility that enhances your employee value proposition goes further by considering when work is done, where it’s done, what work is done, how work is performed and who does the work.


When you consider all five dimensions of flexible working (what we call the 5D’s), you can improve employee health and well-being, save money on workspaces and help your people achieve better work-life balance. A 5D strategy will also help you attract, retain, and advance diverse talent and engage a multigenerational workforce.
