WORKPLACE FLEXIBILITY: THE NEXT IMPERATIVE FOR BUSINESS SUCCESS AND HR LEADERSHIP
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 session, you will learn how flexible work arrangements such as job sharing, flexible scheduling, phased retirement, and telecommuting can drive employee engagement, productivity, retention, and benefit your organization's bottom line. You will also examine case studies of companies that have won the national Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility for their innovative programs. And, you will hear about new resources and opportunities as a result of SHRM's partnership with the Families and Work Institute, including the "When Work Works" initiative.
