Earth Day Challenge: Turn Your Company Green Overnight

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 by Flexible Resources

MEDIA ALERT:   EARTH DAY CHALLENGE:

HOW TO TURN YOUR COMPANY GREEN OVERNIGHT

Flexible workplace innovator, Flexible Resources, Inc. shows companies no-cost options for a creating greener, cleaner company while boosting productivity.

STAMFORD, CT, April 6, 2011 — Earth Day is Friday, April 22, and it begs the question: what can businesses do for the environment beyond recycling paper and printer cartridges?

There’s nothing more effective, more comprehensive, more completely carbon-neutral than initiating a program of flexible work arrangements that features telecommuting. It not only can turn a business green overnight, it creates a more productive and profitable workplace with employees who are focused, motivated, and committed.

Telecommuting, whether in full- or part-time positions, means employees work remotely - from anywhere, anytime. “It’s the most effective option for reducing greenhouse gases, fuel consumption, and has the power to virtually eliminate the bane of every commuter - rush hours.  It’s also the only workplace model in step with technology and a global workforce that functions 24/7,” according to Flexible Resources co-founder Nadine Mocker.

“Keeping employees off the road doesn’t only reduce cost and gas consumption, it is a major life change that benefits people and businesses,” says Laurie Young, Mockler’s partner.  “Blackberries, Palms, and iPhones allow us to work remotely and eliminate the need to commute regularly and bring everyone into the office at the same time.  Companies can gain as much as three hours a day from their employees who work at home or from remote locations.”

Other types of flexible work arrangements, such as part-time and staggered work hours, keep employees off the road at peak hours.

Flexible staffing also allows companies to keep office space and resource consumption at a minimum.

Among the other bottom-line benefits of flexible work arrangements:

  • Flexible staffing allows small businesses to compete for top talent by attracting top-level people who seek flexible work;
  • Flexible scheduling is a huge personal bonus for employees who often value time over money. When faced with hiring and salary freezes, and reduced benefits, flexible staffing is a no-cost perk that boosts morale and aids retention while keeping overhead costs down;

Best chance to find job right now? Consider part-time and contract

Monday, March 7th, 2011 by Flexible Resources

Warning: Parameter 1 to wp_jroute() expected to be a reference, value given in /nfs/c10/h05/mnt/142825/domains/flexibleresources.com/html/components/com_wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 183

BEST CHANCE OF FINDING WORK?

FLEXIBLE RESOURCES SEEING MANY CONSULTANTS, PART-TIMERS TRANSITIONING TO LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS

Flexible Resources, a staffing and consulting firm that specializes in placing professionals in flexible work arrangements, has been busy over the past year working with companies that have suffered layoffs and hiring freezes.

So who’s getting hiring?

“During this alarming economic crisis, businesses have indeed been ‘hiring’ by going around head-count restrictions and bringing in consultants and part-timer professionals to keep workflow moving and support the reduced workforce as it copes with fluctuating workloads,” says Laurie Young, a Flexible Resources co-founder.

While they may sound like bad news for job seekers, there is a silver lining, according to Nadine Mockler, Ms. Young’s partner at Flexible Resources.

“Since this trend emerged just about a year ago, as the financial crisis took hold, we are now seeing many of our consultants either being renewed or in some instances, turned into full-time employees.

“This tells us that when talented professionals get a chance to show what they can do, companies will find a way to keep them.

“Over our 20 years in business we’ve seen more than 85% of the flexible, part-time, and consultants we’ve placed transition to long-term (by that we mean more than two years), relationships with their companies.

“So while it may go against the grain for professionals to seek out a part-time or consulting assignment, it may produce great benefits in the long-run – not only a long-term position, but also the opportunity to be on the inside, to use one’s skills, to learn a new organization, and to make new connections.”

Being a consultant also means being at the top of the list when hiring begins because of the sheer value and increased productivity of hiring someone who already knows the job, so there’s no learning curve.

We’ve seen signs of hiring since 2010 began, with both large and small companies requesting high level experience to make up for all the layoffs of the past two years. They want great talent, but for the most part, have been unwilling to commit to full-time, because the focus now is on getting projects going again while keeping costs low.

If you have been one of the lucky ones to be working part-time in your profession, and believe your talents and commitment to the job deserve greater commitment on the part of the company, now can be a good time to request full-time.

When budgets are still being  reigned in, how can you get your company to agree to a jump in compensation?

The best strategy is to negotiate to make flexible work arrangements the centerpiece of your transition to full-time, thus trading freedom and control over when and where you work for a compensation package that is more than you are making now, but is still less than a traditional full-time position would warrant.

Here are some strategies for using flexible work arrangements to obtain more hours and thus greater compensation while keeping your total package well within budget.

. Telecommuting allows you to work from home, sparing your costly and time-consuming daily commutes, and allowing you the freedom to work when you are needed most;

. Job-sharing — Two people with complimentary skills can provide greater depth and breadth of talent and experience at less than the cost of one full-timer who works long hours

. Permanent part-time — In exchange for keeping your hours short of full-time, you can request a transition to a permanent staff position that includes benefits, but still keeps your pay package less than full-time.

Once you have proven your value to a company by demonstrating a high level of productivity and commitment, you are in the best position to negotiate for full-time when you use flexible work arrangements to reduce the amount of compensation by trading for the freedom and control of flexibility.

Five Steps to Flexibility

Five Steps to Flexibility

We have created hundreds of flexible work arrangements for professionals at Fortune 500 companies for the past 20 years, so we did a “five steps to flexibility” formula for employees.

We’ve heard all the objections to flexible work arrangements over the past two decades. But we have the case studies, the research, and the testimonials to prove that flexible work arrangements improve productivity and help to create a workforce of people who like their jobs. They are also, we believe, the most effective way to permanently improve productivity and stop the endless cycle of over-employment and massive layoffs.

Here’s a good way to begin:

1. Request a Pay Cut - This attention grabber will get your manager to focus quickly on how a flexible schedule can have an immediate impact on the bottom line. If you want a four-day week, for example, agree to reduce your compensation by 20%.  If a paycut is unthinkable considering negotiating for flexibility in lieu of your next raise.

2. Think Outside the Box — If you want to maintain your full-time status but work flexible hours, or work from home at least some of the time, demonstrate how this will improve your productivity.   Working outside the 9-to-5 box, for example, enables you to better deal with overseas clients, a challenge today for even the smallest companies.  The focus here is to work the hours that make the most sense for business. You may, for example, start your day at 7 a.m. for overseas conference calls, or be available for late-night emailing or doing reports from home on your laptop, but the mid-afternoon may be downtime for you.  This way the hours you put in are all productive hours, leaving you the flexibility you crave for work-life balance.

3.  Make a ‘Work from Home’ proposal: Document how and when deadlines will be met; plan for regular conference calls and in-office meetings; Create a detailed step-by-step proposal that shows how every project will be completed on time; also document how telecommuting will allow you to give more time and focus to the job by eliminating daily commutes, endless, unproductive meetings, the frequent office interruptions and distractions of office politics and gossip. What do we do in the office?  We communicate; we write, review, and revise proposals, documents, presentations, and budgets; we schedule meetings and events - all of which can be done remotely.  Why not take full advantage of what technology can do for us, and work virtually?

4. Don’t make it a ‘mom’ issue. In our 20 years in business, the biggest objection to flexible work arrangements is always been: “If I give them to you, then everyone will want them.” No problem! Take the approach that flexible work arrangements are good for the company instead of a special favor reserved for one specific group.

Flexible work arrangements create more motivated, productive, focused employees and help attract and retain top talent.  When flexible work arrangements are a narrowly defined benefit only for moms they create resentment and smack of discrimination.  So while your mom responsibilities may be your main impetus for requesting flexibility, focus instead on how the company will benefit by making you more productive.

5. Take it Out for a Test Drive - If your manager is open to the idea but seems reluctant to give it the go-ahead, ask for a 30-day trial period, and then make it work. Make sure all commitments are clearly spelled out and deadlines are met. Certainly there are those who would try to sabotage your efforts.  But in the end it will be hard to argue with the bottom-line results - your new flexible hours will demonstrate your enhanced ability to meet clients’ needs, you will be available when needed, your deadlines will be met, and your output will increase.

Your motto should be: Measure results, not face-time.

Working Mother Magazine annually publishes its “100 Best Companies” to work for.

But we want to know: What do women think?

That’s the question Flexible Resources is asking working women professionals.

The focus has been on reporting what companies say they are doing for their female employees and how they have created what they say is work-life balance for all employees. But if you look closely at the Working Mother results, many flexible and other so-called ‘work-life options’ are offered, but in many instances, fewer than half the employees are taking advantage of them. That’s because in spite of policy, it all comes down to the individual manager.

Business again discovers the bottom-line benefits of a flexible workforce.

Over the past 18 months we have placed innumerable professionals in part-time and full-time contract positions at all kinds of companies large and small.  These companies didn’t come to us because they were looking to create a more flexible workplace. They were in total deadline mode, trying to cope with heavy workloads that were hitting their pared-down workplace.
