Surveillance and Remote Work
Some employers report using surveillance tools because they fear that remote work lowers productivity. However, research consistently shows the opposite is true. The International Workplace Group found that 85% of businesses reported that offering remote options made their businesses more productive—with 67% estimating that it improved productivity by at least one-fifth.
Remote work and flexible work schedules are also among the top accommodation requests from workers with disabilities. As Accenture has found, companies that engage and meet the needs of employees with disabilities outperform their peers. Employers who seek higher profit and productivity margins are more likely to find success by investing in the proven factors that create an accessible and inclusive workplace.
