“Ambivalence” is defined as the coexistence of positive and negative feelings toward the same object or action simultaneously drawing you in opposite directions.
According to our new research, full-time U.S. workers see ambivalence when asked about employer commitment to work life flexibility — 46% say their employer’s commitment is strong, while the other 45% aren’t so sure the commitment is there.
On the surface, this uncertainty seems to contradict reality when you consider that 97% of full-time employees said they had some form of work life flexibility in 2013 (with 23% reporting an increase from the prior year), and almost one-third of respondents indicated they did most of their work from a remote location other than their employer’s site.
But the ambivalence is happening, and it keeps organizations and individuals from realizing the full benefit of a more strategic, intentional approach to flexibility in how, when and where work is done.

- Highlights of our new research, “Employees Sense Weakened Commitment to Work Life Flexibility.“
- Why employers may be ambivalent toward work life flexibility, even though most of their employees report having at least some form of it, and
- The five steps employers and individuals can take to move beyond unproductive ambivalence and confidently embrace the benefits of strategic, intentional flexibility.
