Designing a Flexible Work Environment That Works for You

OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

While many employers support informal, work-from-home-when-your-child-is-sick types of workplace flexibility, it's simply not enough.

While many employers support informal, work-from-home-when-your-child-is-sick types of workplace flexibility, it's simply not enough. Today's workforce expects organizations to be proactively supportive of workplace flexibility of all types, for all employees, and for all roles. In fact, it's the second most important consideration for job seekers today. But, how can you offer flexibility when there's so much work to be done? In this topic, we'll show you how to create a workplace flexibility initiative that meets both your employee's needs and the needs of the organization. You'll learn how to gain stakeholder buy-in, choose viable flex arrangements, and implement a program that will improve employee performance. You'll learn how flex programs can fail, and how to anticipate and avoid potential challenges, how to change the hearts and minds of leaders who are less than enthusiastic, and build a business case for flexibility in your workplace. You'll hear about successful communications and training strategies from organizations in many industries with diverse employee populations. By the end of this topic, you'll walk away with a framework for how to implement a successful workplace flexibility program of your own.
