Executive Book Club: October 2012

A forward-looking and important benchmark resource for organizations, business leaders, and employees, Workflex: The Essential Guide to Effective and Flexible Workplaces provides comprehensive and in-depth information on how to implement a flexible workplace. It is filled with examples, how-to information, advice from experts, and tools to help employers and HR professionals set up and maintain flexible work arrangements that help meet their needs and the needs of their employees.

All across the United States, business leaders and managers—in large, midsize, and small companies, in all industries and with all kinds of workforces—are responding to the changes in the economy, the workforce, and in work itself. These changes have prompted an intense interest in making workplaces more effective and flexible in ways that benefit the employer and employee alike, such as improved employee health and turnover and greater organizational profits and productivity. The purpose of WORKFLEX is to provide the most essential information that HR leaders need to know about workplace flexibility so they can make it an effective reality in their workplaces. It includes research, legal, and experience-based perspectives and in-depth case studies of workplace flexibility as well the tools and techniques needed to translate those perspectives into action. 

“This book is a treasure-trove of practical perspective and guidance that will help any company fast-forward on its flexibility journey.” -- Delta A. Emerson, Executive Vice President and Chief of Staff, Ryan, LLC
