This week’s hidden gem: Workplace flexibility remains a pipe dream for most| BENZ Communications
14 April 2014—Sloan Center's report was mentioned on www.benzcommunications.com.
A study from the Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College shows that many rank-and-file employees don’t have wide access to workplace flexibility.
While flexibility is generally offered to more senior employees, these types of programs haven’t evolved much over recent years, concludes a report for Human Resource Executive Online.
Families and Work Institute President and Co-Founder Ellen Galinsky agrees that “we have to change from thinking about this as a perk to advantaged employees to seeing is as a tool you use to create and maintain that very productive and engaged workforce,” noting that flexible work “should not be an entitlement, but a responsibility.”
