CEBR Report: The potential economic impacts of a flexible working culture

The survey suggests that the US population would benefit from 11.9 billion hours of extra leisure time if flexible working was more widespread across US workplaces.

As technology develops to become increasingly accessible and affordable, employers should recognize the value that technology-enabled remote working can offer. These economic benefits are dependent on businesses adopting a flexible working culture and implementing technology that enables employees to work from anywhere effectively.

This report by the Centre for Economics and Business Research, commissioned by Citrix, looks into the potential value to the US economy of the adoption of a more widespread flexible working culture.

Read the report to learn why:

  • US economic gains from a flexible working culture could accrue to approximately $2.36 trillion.
  • 86% of respondents who do currently have the option to ‘work from anywhere’ utilize this opportunity.
  • 69% of people who are currently unemployed or economically inactive would start working if given the opportunity to work flexibly.
