Flying in the face of traditional brick-and-mortar companies that hold people hostage to their cubicles, Bill Gates handed down this bit of wisdom several years back:

The competition to hire the best will increase in the years ahead. Companies that give extra flexibility to their employees will have the edge in this area.

Prophetic? Perhaps, yet the majority of companies today are either unable or unwilling to adapt to the lifestyle demands of young workers. In turn, they’re losing good talent to companies with remote work and work-from-home options.
