I can't come to work today...
That's probably one of the last statements a boss wants to hear from an employee.
But it's not always due to illnesses (or laziness) - sometimes our Wisenet team simply can't get to the office for work due to legit reasons like:
- Summertime Sadness, Melbourne (the office's air conditioner was out for 3 weeks)
- Train strikes, Melbourne
- Heavy, biting snow, Queenstown
- Hazardous air pollution, Singapore (due to fires in Indonesia)
- Train breakdowns, Singapore
Yet on all occasions it was Business As Usual for Wisenet across the world -- from Cairns to Las Vegas, the Philippines to Perth, and Singapore to Melbourne -- thanks to our flexible work policies for business operations and good preparation for unforeseen circumstances. Our results speak for themselves.
We'd like to share 5 ways we've found to make flexible work arrangements work!
