Abstract:

Globally, in a move toward the workplace of the future, flexible work practices have been adopted to increase morale, work-life balance and arguably increased quality of work. The inclusion of flexible work aims to alleviate some of the mental, physical and economic strain, with benefits for both employer and employee. Although Nigeria is still considered to be less-developed than the western world we have access to advances in technology through the worldwide web that allow us to integrate novel systems with situational adaptations. Outsourcing, insourcing and flexible working are now features of the modern day organization. This research aims ask human-centered design questions relating to the adoption of flexible working structures in developing economies and its impact on organizational productivity, asset management and employee satisfaction. The research will investigate the relationship, if any, between flexibility in work and increase the innovation culture in organizations. In the course of research I hope to highlight and uncover some of the implications associated with the inclusion of these practices in Nigeria - willingness of adoption, ease of implementation and barriers to acceptance. It will look into the social, cultural and religious factors and the correlation with individual and organization culture and the leadership of the organization.
