Amidst stubbornly high levels of unemployment and sluggish levels of economic growth, how can the business community use workplace flexibility to maintain a competitive advantage? Best-practice businesses have long known the business case for workplace flexibility and have adopted flexibility practices to build more effective, modern workplaces. What are the new trends in flexibility, and how are businesses using it as a key way to facilitate other best-practice employee support and talent development programs? How can global organizations use flexibility in reporting frameworks to measure corporate progress on social issues?

Please join Corporate Voices for Working Families on Wednesday, August 3, 2011, for a webinar where researchers, practitioners and business leaders will discuss these issues. Amy Richman of WFD Consulting will discuss findings from a recently updated Corporate Voices report, “Business Impacts of Flexibility: An Imperative for Expansion.” Richman will shed new light on how flexibility has taken on an ever-growing role as a strategic business imperative for domestic and global enterprises, and how it is being used across different industries. Kathie Lingle of WorldatWork’s Alliance for Work-Life Progress will present findings from a new global study on men and work-life integration. A representative of CVS Caremark will illustrate how the company is using workplace flexibility as a key component in its “Pathways to Pharmacy” talent development program, and Richard Crespin of Corporate Responsibility Officers Association will present innovative ways organizations can use flexibility in corporate reporting initiatives.
