Flexibility is just as Important as Compensation

This is going to be interesting…

Investors and the SEC are now trying to identify and quantify the drivers that attract and retain human capital, AND also how to value human capital more effectively.

BUT…

They are focusing primarily on compensation (per the article), which may be easier to quantify and does matter to people, however, they are overlooking the equal importance that talent places on flexibility to work in a way that allows them to be their best on and off the job. That matters because too much flexibility (e.g. inconsistent scheduling that changes at the last minute) and too little are major factors in the decisions people make to stay or go, especially now.

Should investors and the SEC recognize and seek disclosure related to all aspects (flexibility, compensation, and opportunity) then being strategic and intentional about how, when and where your people work takes on a whole new level of urgency.
