A Forum on Workplace Flexibility
Tuesday, July 12, 2011 from 7:00 AM to 11:30 AM (EDT)
This forum is for human resource leaders, CEOs, COOs, women advocates and others to learn about best practices and how to implement flexible workplace policies. These policies can help companies to attract the best and the brightest while also reducing costs, increasing productivity and employee loyalty, reducing a company's carbon footprint, and insuring business continuity preparedness.
A panel of company representatives and keynote speakers will share best practices and the business benefits experienced by their companies related to workplace flexibility. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in three topical discussions.
A registration fee of $25 is payable at the door by check or cash.
