"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 key HR strategies for implementing flexibility as well as legal issues to consider. 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.
