For us, the return on investment is about community.
For remote workers: Innisfil already has remote workers and wants to attract more – this is about giving people a great quality of life in our community with more flexibility, lower costs, and better work life balance. In a study we conducted with residents, 90% said they want to continue working remotely or start working remotely post-COVID.
For employers: We want to help employers save money – leveraging our infrastructure investments so they don’t have to keep huge offices. We want to help employers around the world gain a competitive edge by being able to hire from anywhere, including Innisfil locals, without having to worry about relocation costs. And we’re helping to attract people into Innisfil so local employers have people to do the jobs that simply can’t be done remotely.
For the community: We want to create more local jobs by increasing people who live, work, and play in Innisfil. We also want to create a community people truly enjoy instead of just commuting to and from (in our study, we found that 82% of Innisfil residents commute out of the town for work. We want to change that).
