Session Title: Top 10 Manager Concerns about Workplace Flexibility: How do you overcome the challenge?
Implementing a robust workplace flexibility initiative is a business imperative. Changes in the needs of the American workforce and the proven impact on the bottom-line make it a must-have strategy in 2013.
But, how can you get management to buy-in? Especially from middle managers who often resist the change to this new way of working. Recent studies have proven what you already know: middle manager resistance is one of the biggest obstacles to flex adoption in organizations today. What are their concerns, and how can you build a strategy to address and overcome them?
Kyra Cavanaugh, President, Life Meets Work, has trained countless managers to overcome their concerns about workplace flexibility initiatives. Kyra will share strategies that have been used successfully by best practice organizations to overcome manager resistance to expand flex in their organizations. In this highly interactive session, Kyra, along with local practitioners, will share their experiences with flex implementation, how they made it work, and the challenges they still face.
