Flex Fundamentals for Managers
Learn important information about the flexible work options that are available to employees.
Your workplace flexibility program is more than a benefit—it’s a strategy to help your organization meet its goals. But to get the best results, your managers and employees need to understand your policies and best-practice tips for managing and utilizing flex in your organization.
Manager resistance is one of the top barriers to flexible work success. Overcome resistance by arming managers with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful. Provide your managers with the training they need to manage the flex process and lead a flexible work team.
Developed in partnership with Life Meets Work, our workplace flexibility courses offer modular e-learning to help your organization launch or improve training around your flexible work program. These courses are fully customizable to incorporate your flex policies, approach, and materials.
