Kristen Stockton, JASKAP Consulting

You don’t have to look far into research to uncover the data and studies showing how to engage the workforce. Clear evidence shows and HR professionals know, that productivity and business performance is higher when the workforce is “engaged”. But what do “we” HR professional mean by engage and what does the “workforce” expect to be engaged. We want our people to go above and beyond for their employer. The worker wants respect for skills and talents, included in discussions that impact their day to day work, and the recognition for their work in meaningful ways, pay equity, benefits and oh yeah one other thing the employee requests for full engagement is, flexibility.

Did you just use the “f” word? Yes, Flexibility, the “f” word that sends managers running and HR leaders scrambling. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You as an HR professional can actually use flexibility in how, when and where employees work in ways that support business performance. 

•Understand the business case for change in where, when and how we work
•Explore the shift from “accommodating individuals” to “workplace changes”
•Examine evolution of workplace policies and decisions have become best practices for the workplace
•Leave with roadmap to evaluate your organizations people strategy and workplace structure for optimizing workplace flexibility
