Drive Business Success with Workplace Flexibility

Pending SHRM and HRCI

Program Description

Effective and flexible work—or workflex—is rethinking how, when, and where people do their best work in ways that work for all. It’s a fundamental element of the 21st century workplace shaped by advanced technologies, shifting demographics, and a 24/7 global economy. In order to remain competitive, organizations must develop innovative policies and practices that are responsive to employee needs—and enable them to have more control over how they accomplish their work and responsibilities. That’s why top employers are making workflex part of their strategy to attract, retain and engage the best talent. Learn how you can drive business success by harnessing the power of workflex to support your organizational goals and strategy. This session will provide you with knowledge on how to build the business case for workflex, customize a workflex program and share tips on implementation. Discussion will be grounded in the results of national research and best practices from SHRM’s When Work Works Initiative and award-winning organizations that demonstrate how workflex can boost retention, engagement, and other critical outcomes.
