In the Best Money Moves Roundup, we run down the latest news on flexible workspaces, student loan assistance, and calibration committees.

Flexible workspaces used to be the stuff of startups, but companies all over the world are now adopting more flexible approaches to where people work to meet the changing needs of the workforce. And in return they’re benefiting from higher productivity, retention, and even profits, according to a recent study from IWG.

Most employees work remotely at least once a week and more than half work at a location outside the office for half the week or more. Over 90 percent of companies offering flexible workspaces are confident that their remote workers are productive while on the move and almost 60 percent agree that it improves job satisfaction.

It’s time to develop a remote work strategy that offers your employees the flexibility to get work done without having to be in the office every day.
