Creating a Flexible Workplace

By Lori K. Long, Ph.D.    

Flexible work initiatives can improve recruitment and retention efforts, increase worker productivity, improve organizational diversity efforts, encourage ethical behavior, and help the organization’s efforts to be socially responsible. Flexible work options give employees the ability to decide when and where work is completed. This learning module defines flexible work; discusses the benefits to organizations offering flexible work options; and provides methods to implement a flexible work program. A PowerPoint lecture and an Instructor's Manual comprise the teaching materials.
