Important Notes from this article:
- “The phrase “flex work” is often defined by having flexible work hours — employers that allow their workers to build a schedule that’s outside the typical 9-5. But flex work is so much more than coming in at 10am a couple of days a week, or working from home 50% of the time. It also means being able to take family leave when you need to, whether it’s for having a baby or caring for your elderly parents — and feeling confident that your position with the company will be intact when you return.
- “Half of Ellevate members surveyed said that for them, flexibility means having the opportunity to work remotely or virtually; for about a third of them it means choosing their own hours; and another 6% said it’s about having family-friendly company policies including parental and family leave. 45% of our members have said that the number one reason they’ve left a job is because of a better offer from another company in the same industry. Things like flex work and family leave have become factors women consider when choosing their next job.”
