Flexible Work Policies: Good for Companies and Employees

A successful business requires not only a great product or service, but also a culture where employees can thrive. Here at InspiringApps, we believe one way to help build a vibrant and diverse team is through flexible work policies.

We are not alone in believing in the value of flexible work environments – a large portion of the American workforce desires more control over when, where, and how they work.

In this post, we’ll discuss what constitutes flexible work policies, and explore how to leverage the advantages they offer. We’ll also comment on some potential challenges and how to address them for the benefit of the company and the employees. Read More
