Research finds ties between workplace flexibility and positive business results
Workplace flexibility programs benefit employers of all sizes and industries, resulting in increased employee job satisfaction, lower turnover and lower insurance costs, according to a new report, Workplace Flexibility in the United States: A Status Report.
Since October is National Work and Family Month, it’s a good time to discuss work-flex.
I love how Jason Seiden described “work/life balance” recently at Illinois SHRM: “We talk of it as something we separate by a slash and then hope we can balance everything in between. Trying to package them and keep them separate doesn’t work…There is no rigid separation.”
Work/life balance is a problem in the United States, say 89 percent of 1,043 Americans in survey findings released September 1, 2010.
And while more than two-thirds of 613 full- and part-time workers say they have adequate balance in their lives, the recession has upended that balance for 31 percent of workers. When that happens, time with family is the first thing affected, followed by personal down time.
