Summary: Workplace flexibility has become a key business strategy to leverage the talents and skills of today’s increasingly diverse, aging, and multi-generational workforce. In this webinar, you will learn how flexible work arrangements such as job sharing, flexible scheduling, and telecommuting can drive employee engagement, improve employee health outcomes, increase productivity, drive retention efforts, and benefit your organization’s bottom line. The benefits of workplace flexibility for employees will also be covered. You will also examine case studies of companies that have won the national Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for their innovative programs. And you will hear about new workplace flexibility resources and opportunities from SHRM and the U.S. Department of Labor Women’s Bureau, including the “When Work Works” initiative.
