Introducing Flexibility: A Guide for Human Resources

Introducing Flexibility: A Guide for Human Resources

This four-module course will help HR staff get a clear understanding of the flexible work arrangements, put together a task force, develop pilot projects and present the business case for increased flexibility to top management.

The four modules . . .

Understanding workplace flexibility

In this module HR staff will learn everything they needed to know about workplace flexibility, including the formal work arrangements. The next section is called “The business case for change,” and HR staff will be well-versed in that case by the time they complete it.

Taking the plunge

How do you begin? This course suggests a task force is the right way to begin, and offers assistance in creating one, including agendas for meetings.  Participants will learn how to make their own case for flexibility. They’ll practice writing policy, and walk through the steps to creating their own pilot.

Making remote work succeed

Many of the “flex” workers will want to be virtual, at least some of the time, and this module discusses how to make remote work succeed. It covers Workers’ Comp issues, and offers tips for helping managers be prepared for the challenges of managing virtual workers.

Flexibility for low-wage and hourly workers

This module covers The Fair Labor Standards Act and scheduling challenges and solutions for low wage and hourly workers. It ends with some valuable tips for HR staff who want to create a more flexible, supportive and effective workplace.
