The Conference Board of Canada’s Benefits Benchmarking 2023 project provides timely insights into organizations’ approaches to flexibility in work arrangements, both in where employees work and the hours they work. The purpose of this research is to allow organizations to compare their organization’s efforts with those of their peers so as to remain current and competitive in today’s labour market.
This briefing explores the prevalence and characteristics of different flexible work arrangements among Canadian organizations, with the aim of helping organizations navigate decisions around the level of flexibility—in terms of work hours and location—that they would like to offer employees.
What percentage of employers require employees to work in-office and, if so, for what percentage of the workweek? May employees who can work remotely live anywhere—in Canada or the world? Are most hybrid and remote organizations providing employees with work-from-home stipends? If so, how often are they providing them, and what is their value?
