Non-profit environmental organisation, Planet Ark implemented a mobility strategy to help staff living in dispersed locations.

Back in 2014 Planet Ark had three offices; Sydney CBD, Melbourne and the Blue Mountains - New South Wales.

Due to various reasons Planet shut down its Blue Mountains office. Ian Bridges, chief information officer at Planet Ark, said rather than force workers to relocate to the Sydney CBD office, the organisation decided to implement a mobility strategy, company wide.

According to Bridges, the vision for the strategy included two major goals: free staff from physical office locations; and improve staff engagement and retention.
