Workplace Flexibility 
 

Got Flexibility?  Become a ‘Business Champion.’

Does your organization recognize workplace flexibility as a key element for success in the global market? 

If so, SHRM encourages you to join other leading employers in the National Campaign on Workplace Flexibility by signing the Statement of Support for Workplace Flexibility.

SHRM is proud to be a member of the Partner Coalition on Workplace Flexibility – a group of business organizations recognized for research, thought leadership and public policy efforts in the work-life area.

The coalition’s national campaign seeks to broaden employer awareness of the mutual employer-employee benefits of workplace flexibility.

An employer can become a “Business Champion” by signing a workplace flexibility statement of support.  It can be faxed to Lisa Horn at 703-535-6492 or e-mailed to lisa.horn@shrm.org.

Benefits of being a Business Champion include:

  • Recognition at a high-visibility meeting at the close of the campaign
  • Permission to showcase a “Business Champion” logo on the organization’s Web site
  • Participation in regional events around the country
