Work­ing flex­i­bly is a way of life for em­ploy­ees at this pro­fes­sion­alser­vices com­pany: In 2016, 85% of them telecom­muted or worked re­motely, while 80% ad­justed their sched­ules at some point. Its in­ge­nious SmartWork program helps them fur­ther ex­plore al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments and re­duces the need for travel. Ev­ery­one gets 18 to 27 days of Paid Time Off per year, plus a float­ing hol­i­day and five un­paid days to use as they like; sab­bat­i­cals and job-guar­an­teed leaves are avail­able. Video­con­fer­enc­ing makes meet­ings flex­i­ble for par­ents, and is so com­mon that the com­pany spends 9 mil­lion min­utes do­ing it each month.
