What do women want? The security of a permanent job and the income it provides, the ability to do meaningful and productive work, and to ensure that their children get the single-minded focus they need and deserve. They also believe a flexible work arrangement is the key to making their wishes come true.
Flexible Resources, Inc. invented an entire new way to look at staffing – strategically – so that each position is structured in a way that best suits both the company and the employee. Over the past 20 years we have created thousands of flexible positions for working moms, in companies from small start-ups to the Fortune 500.
Burned out? Stressed? Feel that demands of the office and home are going to squeeze all the life out of you?
A flexible work schedule is often the answer. But many managers resist, believing the conventional wisdom that the only way to get the most out of employees is to ensure that they are in the office 9-to-5, five-days-a-week. In fact, it is probably the least efficient way to work.
Our book, “The End of Work As We Know It” details surveys we did with professionals and their managers that prove the current 9-to-5 workplace model is hopelessly out of step with our evolving demographics and makes no sense for a 24/7 global workplace that is service-based and technology-driven.
The book was written by two workplace pioneers, Nadine Mockler and Laurie Young, founders of Flexible Resources, Inc., a staffing and consulting firm based in Stamford, CT with offices in Hartford and Fairfield, NJ.
