In up times or down times, companies have to take care of their staff. If you take care of your staff, they will take care of your customers. Work-life friendly workplaces remain relevant in uncertain times like these and having a ‘culture of trust’ is crucial to keeping a company intact. Flexible work arrangements are a good way for employers to show employees they care, especially in bad times when a company is not doing well and workers themselves feel threatened.
