“We have seen that remote work is the future.” Sarah-Tyler Moore / Mid-Atlantic Director, Aquent
Aquent is in the news for plans to make working remotely a permanent policy for almost its entire workforce. The company has chosen to not renew leases on many of its offices and will, instead, invest the savings in employee well-being initiatives. They’re also hiring a new Head of Community & Culture to help oversee employee engagement and deal with issues that come with working from home - things like, technology support and challenges related to childcare at home. While working remotely last year, Aquent saw no declines in productivity and received positive employee feedback. Still, according to Sarah-Tyler Moore, “we’re making sure that we’re providing employees with support and connection to other employees on their team.” Aquent will keep about ten percent of its offices for large meetings, special projects and certain clients.
