There is no global 9 to 5: The world of work has gone global - companies working in different timezones have to adjust so that their people can stay connected. Part of the benefit for them is a 24 hour productivity cycle.
This is not about millennials: It's not just millennials who are demanding more workplace flexibility - it's something that all generations are asking for. Everyone wants to live more balanced lives while still having great careers.
Flexible work can help mitigate the gender-wage gap: For certain professions, the highest-paying jobs disproportionately reward those who can work the longest, least flexible hours. This often impacts women more than men, as they tend to take on more caregiving responsibilities.
The world of work is changing. Companies who recognize this shift are adapting and as a result being more competitive in the global war for top talent. Let's build a workforce where we can all succeed and thrive!
