“There’s a great opportunity to begin to explore how we create an environment that is safe for people who want to have conversations about flexibility, who want to be flexible, vs. fighting that change.” – Peter Yobo, PricewaterhouseCoopers
The benefits of flexible working are widely established including reduced absenteeism, increased productivity and enhanced employee engagement and loyalty. Then why are so many organisations challenged to embrace it?
When we think of working flexibly we typically think of ‘working remotely’ or ‘starting late’ and ‘finishing early’. This type of flexible work, however, doesn’t suit everyone and can’t necessarily be adopted by those who don’t work in an office.
If organisations are genuinely committed to providing flexible working arrangements for all employees, then what needs to be done? Do arrangements need to be formalised, or can they be informal? What kind of arrangements can be adopted? How do we overcome the challenges of providing flexibility to operational employees?
Join us to discuss these questions and many more. This forum will be facilitated by Jo Marshall from Culturise, and kindly hosted by Australian Rail Track Corporation.
