Replacing False Flexibility With Real Flexibility at Work

Sorry, this webinar has ended.

Flexibility does not just mean working from home — so what should it mean at your company?

We’ve been talking about the F-word a lot at work these days. Chances are, your organization has taken — or is interested in taking — actions to create more flexibility at work. However, unless such efforts are meaningful, they may end up useless at best, counterproductive at worst. What does flexibility actually mean? What should it mean? What shouldn’t it mean?

Flexibility already had a loose definition before the pandemic — it used to mean working from home at times or squeezing in a doctor’s appointment here and there. But that’s not what real flexibility looks like, and it’s not entirely what we need right now. Join consultant and researcher Leslie Forde as she reveals unique research showing what over 1,200 people have shared about what they need at work and in life to get through today’s tough times. Forde will highlight:

  • Why the gap between what employees need and are willing to ask for has widened
  • What flexibility should look like now and how to leverage it to keep your best people
  • The most common mistakes employers make to improve flexibility and how to navigate them
  • How to liberate employees to do more self-care so that they can also engage in deep work

Join this webinar to bust misconceptions about flexibility, as well as gain practical, concrete tips on how to infuse it better in your own workplace.
