as Agency Game Changer
By Meryl Rosenthal

Today’s talent and clients expect modern workspaces, inclusive work cultures, and progressive work practices. Implementing successful space change is one way to enhance an agency’s work culture and attract the next generation of advisors and clients. Yet, a recent FlexPaths study found that these workplace considerations rarely make it to the top of a company’s priority list, given the demands of everyday business. The study — Building the Bridge for Culture Change: A Mandate for 2020 — collected data and perspectives from hundreds of U.S. and Canadian agency leaders and close to 1,400 advisors. The results indicate that agencies need to focus more on creating workspaces, experiences, and practices that appeal across all talent segments.
