Let’s look at a case study to see how the provision for flex-work might look in the real world:
In 2014, a subsidiary of a global engineering company decided to focus on promoting employee engagement and improve retention rates.
The President and CEO approved the implementation of a pilot campaign to promote a sense of greater work-life balance. She personally spear-headed Phase 1 of the program, establishing a committee of 11 senior managers and 2 consultants to plan, design, and implement four trial programs. They included a work-from-home plan, free daily yoga and meditation offerings, provision of healthy free lunch options, and more flexible benefit and compensation package options.
The four new programs were implemented in one department consisting of 40 employees in a single location for a six-month pilot period.
