As the 2012 National Study of Employers (NSE) suggests, workplace flexibility is replacing the one-size-fits-all, 9-to-5 way of working in a growing number of organizations. What’s motivating companies to consider new ways of making work “work?” And what impact does giving employees more choice over how, when and where work gets done have on workplaces and the bottom-line?
Please join us for #NextChat on May 2 at 6 p.m. ET with special guests Ellen Galinsky (@EllenGalinsky), president, Families and Work Institute, and Lisa Horn (@SHRMLobbystLisa), co-leader of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative. We'll explore the key findings from the 2012 NSE and best practices in creating effective and flexible workplaces and ask for your thoughts on the following questions:
- How do you define workplace flexibility or what you call workflex?
- What are the benefits of workflex to the employee/employer?
- What new trends do you see emerging in workflex?
- In what innovative ways is your organization implementing workflex?
- What are the reasons some organizations are hesitant to implement workflex programs?
- Where is your favorite place to work outside the office?
We look forward to your contributions to this conversation!
