Other trends that are gaining popularity in the talent management field are those focused on work flexibility, aimed at the incentive of emotional salary.

According to the United Kingdom’s Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, the term “flexible work” describes a type of work agreement that provides for a certain degree of flexibility with regard to various aspects.

A global vision

This trend has caused countries to redesign their employment policies under the framework of more flexible work relations focused on training and a heightened social dimension. In this regard, we can mention the cases of the United States and France. The United States has been consistently reducing unemployment since 2009 through the flexible work arrangement, while France is characterised for high unionisation rates, inflexible contracts, and high employment taxes, which generates 33% less productivity than other developed countries.

Characteristics of work flexibility

  • More competitive
  • Hiring freedom
  • Market reinvestment
  • Organization-employee agreements

The opportunity to work with flexibility improves our ability to align our purpose with our actions, allowing us to operate in increasingly committed contexts.
