Our vision for the Flex Index
Our vision is to provide a single source of truth on workplace flexibility for every company worldwide.
Every company has a stance on workplace flexibility. But few companies make their office requirements public, and every company describes their flexible work policy differently. There are numerous stakeholders who benefit from bringing these office requirements to light.
The Flex Index today covers 100M employees across 4,425 companies.
Who is the Flex Index for?
that want to know what a company’s office requirements are
that want to highlight their workplace flexibility to prospective hires
that need a reliable data source on trends in company office requirements
focused on the “future of work” and how evolving workplace flexibility will impact many parts of how we live and work
Terminology we use
Organization does not have offices; all employees work remotely.
Each employee can choose how often (or never) to come to the office.
Specific days a week
There are specific days of the week employees must come to the office.
Minimum days per week
There is a minimum number of days employees must come to the office each week.
Minimum % of the time
There is a minimum % of time that employees must be in the office.
Full time in office
Employees are expected to be in the office full time.
Company office requirements are generated through a combination of online surveys and manual entry of publicly available information. All surveys must be submitted by an employee of the company with an accompanying work email address to verify their employment.
Once a company is posted, we reach out to executives at the company informing them that their company has been added and giving an opportunity to add or edit information.
The topline office requirements (the ones listed when searching for the company or as the headline on a company page) reflect the most common office requirements for corporate employees.
Companies can add detail to their company page to reflect job functions, roles, or geographies where there are different office requirements from the corporate policy. This includes opportunities for fully remote work, roles that are required to be fully on site, or other hybrid work arrangements.
HOW THE FLEX INDEX WORKS
We offer a number of different ways to filter search results:
- By office requirements
- By industry
- By company size
Adding your company to the Flex Index takes 60 seconds. There are two ways to add your company depending on your role:
- Short survey - For any company employee. This survey asks for only the most basic information about your company’s office requirements and takes one minute to complete.
- Detailed survey - For company representatives that are familiar with more detailed aspects of the company’s policy. Company representatives will be asked for a work email address and Linkedin profile to verify each submission.
Company representatives can edit or verify their existing listing on their company page. We use the work email address and LinkedIn profile to verify each submission. Once a submission has been verified, the company's listing on the Flex Index will be updated to include a verified check mark.
