Flexible Work Scheduling And Telecommuting: Practical Strategies For a Productive Workforce
|Date / Time:
Telecommuting took over the headlines recently when Yahoo! CEO Marissa Meyer decided to suspend the company's telework policy. Both employees and employers around the country reacted with strong feelings - many for, many against - but with no shortage of emotion.
Offering workplace flexibility can promote a strong work-life balance and is an effective way for companies to both attract and retain great workers. Flexible hours, compressed work-weeks, teleworking - these are not new concepts. In fact, more than 75 percent of employers now offer some kind of flexible schedule option, which is up from 66 percent in 2005.
But flexible scheduling and telecommuting options have their fair share of challenges, especially for organizations that are just beginning to incorporate such programs. How do they ensure it's being done fairly and legally? How can they rein in employees who have developed an entitlement mentality? Where do wage and hour and other regulations come into play?
As an employer, you want to keep your employees happy, but you also have to keep productivity up, so it's crucial for you to get up to date on the latest developments related to telecommuting and alternative scheduling so you can keep your organization on track and moving forward.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- The definition of a flexible workplace - what it is, and what it isn't
- The pros and cons of flex-time, compressed schedules, and teleworking

- Why it is critical to train both managers and employees to assure common understanding, and clear and consistent practices
- Advice for dealing with the negative perceptions that flex-workers may experience
- How and when to discontinue teleworking programs, either for individuals or for the company - and not end up in the headlines
- How to structure a pilot program, so you can start small, measure, and expand your program in a practical, business-based way

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
