According to Robert Frost, “Freedom lies in being bold”.
It takes a certain amount of courage for a leader to give its subordinates the liberty of reaching their objectives in the best way they see fit. And though it can be seen as a great leadership move, it is very challenging to define its boundaries.
In a workplace environment, freedom is applied in the ability of keeping non-traditional hours – contrary from the 9-to-5 setting the majority of the workforce is used to, work from home, taking limitless vacation days and exercising creative approach in meeting career goals.
Despite of how taboo the concept of flexible working may seem, a significant shift in the workforce has been observed over the past years.
An increasing number of employees are turning away from the traditional model of work hours. New ways of operation continue to grow in popularity, transforming our offices and giving us a precaution for a big change that’s about to happen in the near future.
