Flexible Working Approach

We’ll enable employees to work from wherever makes most sense for them, provide flexible work schedules, the right technology and personalised benefits to make work, work for each person. And, we’ll find unique ways for people to collaborate and communicate so that they feel ownership and belonging.

When we started piloting Dynamic Work at Okta in 2019, we found that this flexibility increased empowerment, satisfaction and productivity. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated our move to Dynamic Work and we believe our experience and vision will be widely applicable to every company thinking about how to reinvent their work environments. Together, we can make work more liveable and sustainable.
