For years it was common to hear—and sympathize—when someone mentioned being “chained to my desk.” The phrase could suggest a few things: lack of workplace freedom, a very heavy workload, and even indispensability. Today, though, the way work gets done has become increasingly mobile. People no longer have to be at their desk to be working hard or filling an indispensable role, and many organizations have recognized the value of enabling more freedom in how and where employees work. In fact, our research found that mobility factors heavily in how C-suite leaders see the future of work.
