The study of 270 small business owners on Workplace Flexibility revealed that numerous firms, regardless of their size and scope, have quite a hard time finding employees with a suitable set of skills for the positions they advertise, which is an especially worrying situation, given the fact that close to 50% of companies plan to hire new staff members over the next year or so.

Nevertheless, sixty-four percent of small-business owners revealed that allowing flexible, mobile, and remote work options has helped them retain their top employees. A 3-pronged approach with a variety of spaces in the office that balance quiet space for focus and shared space for collaboration, tools to work anywhere, and an updated company policy to optimize productivity is proving most effective in keeping talented people in the team or bringing new talent onboard.
