Flexibility makes a big difference in inclusion.
The competition to hire the best will increase in the years ahead. Companies that give extra flexibility to their employees will have the edge.
Flexibility, especially the flexibility gained from working from home, avoids a lot of forced intimacy. It avoids a lot of the accommodations grind. That’s a boon to disabled and neurodivergent workers, and to everyone.
Let workers work from home, and give them a home office budget so they can create their own access intimacy.
