Werk makes companies flexible

Werk makes companies flexible

Our technology puts flexibility insights and data into the hands of companies to help them work smarter

The one-size-fits-all workday is a thing of the past

Workday is Broken illustration

the workday is broken

Companies today are operating on a fundamentally broken premise: that the workday is fixed and unchangeable. At Werk, we are building a future in which jobs are adaptive to the humans who perform them, optimizing the workday experience to address employee skills, motivations, and needs.

a lack of flexibility is costly

The failure of companies to move towards a more human-centric workday is costly: inflexibility has created a talent attraction and retention epidemic. Healthcare and real estate costs are soaring while productivity is at an all-time low. And diversity and inclusion initiatives are failing as a result of a one-size-fits-all mindset that fosters a culture of exclusion rather than one of belonging.

werk is the solution

If companies are going to truly adapt, stay nimble, and poise themselves for growth in the Human Era, they must reconsider the fundamentals of how jobs are designed and how, where, and when work gets done. Companies must embrace flexibility in a structured way—and we have the tools and data to help.
