Abstract
In light of new trends and realities, today's society promotes and values the importance of innovation and sustainability as a solution to the challenges ahead, where companies contribute to the attraction and retention of young talent through Telework. This study addresses Telework as a solution to new challenges. The focus of the study is five small and medium-sized companies. It was concluded that companies opted for Telework at home, with advantages of cost reduction, conciliation of personal and professional life, and reduction of pollutant gases; and as disadvantages, the investment in equipment, social isolation, and precariousness of the labor market. The impacts of telework were verified at the level of productivity, commitment, and performance, where it was concluded that telework can be partially maintained. The contribution of this work focuses on the importance that virtual experiences have in Generation Z and the flexibility of companies in adopting pre-existing work models.
