When you first think of flexibility, it might seem like your hands are tied if you can’t offer remote work to your employees. Some roles, like front desk staff, in-home caregivers, or automotive technicians, simply cannot perform their duties away from their place of business — and that’s okay. There are other ways to incorporate flexibility to create a competitive recruitment strategy at your organization.
