Intensions Study in Vancouver Sun & Ottawa Citizen

On March 29, 2016, the Vancouver Sun and Ottawa Citizen published an article titled, 'Would you rather answer to a computer than your boss?' Written by Randy Shore, the article discussed findings from our recent Intensions Consulting study on the Future of Work across Canada.

To quote from the article: "Many workers would like to see a total overhaul of the traditional workplace structure, including freedom from working 9-to-5 (45 per cent) and not showing up at the office at all (41 per cent)... Nearly 40 per cent of Canadians think that work interferes with their personal life and 20 per cent would consider hiring someone from Craigslist or Freelancer to do part of their job for them. About one quarter of respondents think it is fine to pursue their own side projects and interests on company time."
