Flexibility is no longer a nice benefit. It’s an expectation employees and customer service agents have when choosing a company to work for, stay with, and recommend. It’s the future of work. And it’s a current workforce trend right now. But what does flexibility really mean? Traditionally people refer to flexibility as WHERE they work, yet it’s also about WHEN and HOW too.

You’ll hear tactics to overcome naysayers who don’t support flex work and ways to retain a customer-centric distributed team. While the focus is the future of work, this episode digs deep into lessons from the pandemic as we must “never waste a crisis.”
