In this Spotlight Series article, we explore Results-Based Work (RBW) models for organizations looking to enhance employee productivity and engagement.

What is a RBW model and how is it different from the Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE) model? Why does giving employees the freedom over how they accomplish their tasks translate into improved performance and outcomes? What should organizations consider when determining if RBW is a good fit for them?
