More flexibility isn’t just a nice-to-have these days, it’s something people would actually be willing to pay for — 46 per cent of Canadians would take less pay for the opportunity to work somewhere that offers greater flexibility, according to a survey by WORKshift Canada.

What’s more, a desire for flexibility is not just a millennial issue: Flexible work appeals to working Canadians regardless of generation.

Even the federal government is exploring changes to the Canada Labour Code that would require all federally regulated businesses to offer a process whereby employees can request flexible work.
