THE FLEXIBILITY GAP
ANNIE DEAN, CO-FOUNDER AND CO-CEO, WERK
The world of work looks radically different than it did a decade ago. In a time of technological transformation, accelerating connectivity and demographic shifts, people are working longer hours with less personal time. This new ‘normal’ impacts employee health, happiness and productivity and undermines the effectiveness of their employers.
Annie Dean will share Werk’s cutting edge research on the flexibility gap and the negative impact it’s having on companies and employees alike. She’ll specifically address how the lack of flexibility impacts an organization’s ability to:
· Attract and hire talent
· Engage and retain talent
· Create diverse and inclusive workplaces
· Increase employee productivity
· Optimize real-estate investments
· Manage healthcare costs
Annie will unpack why the flexibility gap exists and outline a better way to approach flexibility--one that starts with data and insights. HR Executives will learn a structured approach to truly harness the ROI of flexibility and use it to transform their businesses.
Who should attend: This Executive Forum is open to the CSHRP member plus one guest.
