With the improvement in the economy, the needs of the future generation of our workforce, and the low unemployment in the Twin Cities, skilled talent is getting harder to find and so is the office space to put them for many organizations. We all know that Telework and Workplace Flexibility have been around for many years, but have you reviewed your organization’s programs lately?
To truly leverage the power of flexibility & telework, a strategic approach to building a flexible work culture may be needed. In this session, participants will learn from business leaders about successful flexible work arrangements and how to implementation these programs. Examples, best practices, and success factors from these companies will be discussed to outline the characteristics of a flexible work culture. We will also be sharing some new resources that are available from eWorkPlace. This state-sponsored program was first introduced in 2009, and in just two years it helped many Twin Cities’ metro-area employers and thousands of employees learn about, introduce, and perfect Workplace Flexibility & Telework.
Now, back by popular demand, eWorkplace will help more employers train managers to increase their comfort level with flexibility. It will help them choose flex-ready staff members, train them, and enable them to work from home or other remote locations, using today’s improved technology to maintain connectivity. Join us to hear more about the options that are available for today’s workforce and your organization as we move toward more flexible work arrangements. You may be surprised how easy it really is to put telework and flextime options into your company’s culture.
