Workplace Flexibility Toolkit

Filed under: General HR Buzz,Work/Life Balance — Tags: 6:00 am

Workplace flexibility is becoming more and more intriguing to employers.  Many are realizing that flexibility can be mutually beneficial to both the business and the employees. But, just how to go about meeting the needs of each through changes to the time (when), location (where), and the manner (how) in which an employee works has become the challenge.  Through careful planning flexibility can result in superior outcomes for both employer and employee.

In an effort to help meet the need for a strong balance between work and life, the U. S. Department of Labor has introduced a Workplace Flexibility Toolkit developed by The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the Women’s Bureau.  This unique toolkit provides useful and valuable workplace flexibility strategy and information to employees, employers, policymakers, and researchers related to time and place, and also around the task involved.  The toolkit provides case studies, fact and tip sheets, issue briefs, reports, articles, websites, other toolkits, and frequently-asked questions.

In this toolkit, the terms Workplace Flexibility, Flexible Work Arrangements, Work-Life Balance, and Flexible Workplace Options are used interchangeably to describe all types of workplace flexibility.

This exceptional toolkit offers links to narrow the number of resources that are relevant to what you need.  Each link includes the number of resources available.  Currently, the toolkit includes 172 resources.  What types of workplace flexibility have you implemented or plan to implement in your workplace?  Please add your comments – we’d love to hear from you!
