A flexible work environment has a positive impact on customers, revenue, and employee engagement
Submitted by Workiva
Since its founding in 2008, Workiva has prioritized a people-first culture guided by the belief that you can’t build transformative technology without a strong, highly engaged team. One way the company’s people-first culture is brought to life is its flexible approach to workplace location, "Work Where You Work Best,” which enables and supports individuals and teams to work from offices around the globe at whatever frequency they choose.
“Workiva wins when our team members are in environments that fuel their creativity and productivity. Our approach to remote work is about recognizing that good work is not about a place, it’s about people and teams,” said Julie Iskow, president and chief executive officer, Workiva. “We continue to see the positive impact of ‘Work Where You Work Best’ on our team's engagement scores, talent acquisition, employee and revenue retention, and the value we bring to our customers every day.”
Putting Workiva’s Culture to Work
Workiva’s “Work Where You Work Best” approach is grounded in five key principles developed by its leadership team and closely tied to the company’s culture. They are:
In addition to its “Work Where You Work Best” approach to remote work, Workiva offers several measures meant to expand employees’ location flexibility, including being able to relocate to another area within their country of residence at will, work outside of their country of residence for up to 25 business days per year, and request to relocate to another country where Workiva operates. All new employees receive a remote work allowance upon hire to offset setting up home office expenses.
“Trust and accountability are key to offering location flexibility successfully and enabling employees to balance their professional commitments with their personal well-being,” said Emily Forrester, senior vice president of human resources, Workiva. “Whether teams are side-by-side or working remotely across the globe, Workiva strives to uphold an environment where team members are equipped and empowered to do their best work, regardless of location.”
