This is what most companies get wrong about flexibility

When Agios Pharmaceuticals saw its workforce increase more than 450% in three years–from 90 to 500 employees–leaders feared the firm could end up with the kind of toxic culture that rears its ugly head in the aftermath of tremendous growth. The niceties that came with being small and nimble are hard to keep up with when the staff gets large or spans more than one office or location.

As a result, we see companies offer incentives that don’t align with the values of the types of top talent they want to attract. Increasingly, one of the non-negotiables modern employees want is flexibility in how and where they work. In fact, many younger employees say they’d take a pay cut for work with flexible hours, and the likelihood they’d stay with a company is dependent on its flexibility programs.
