Oct. 12 Capitol Hill event to highlight flexibility as a 21st century business imperative
— The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), which believes work-life fit is one of the most important issues facing the 21st century workplace, will sponsor a Capitol Hill briefing on effective and flexible workplaces in partnership with the
Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute.
8:30-10:30 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12, in B369 Rayburn House Office Building
Kempthorne will moderate a panel titled “Workplace Flexibility:A 21st Century Imperative.” Panelists will be:
Workplace flexibility makes a significant contribution to business success and improved employee job satisfaction and productivity. Unfortunately, current laws and paid leave have not kept pace with the changing needs of today’s workforce. SHRM supports policies that foster flexibility rather than mandate a one-size-fits-all approach. The Society is committed to educating employers and policy-makers on workplace flexibility practices that work for both employees and employers.
SHRM announced in February a partnership with the Families and Work Institute to help organizations be more successful by transforming the way businesses view and adopt flexible workplace practices. The partnership is hosting a
work-life focus conference Nov. 8-10, which will feature thought leaders in workplace flexibility and winners of the
Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility.
