Book This Workshop

Workplace flexibility continues to be top priority for IT employees, and as a result:

  • Organizations who fail to offer flexibility will have a difficult time attracting, recruiting, and retaining talent.
  • If the benefits of remote work are not available to everyone, this will raise fairness and equity concerns for employees.

Follow Info-Tech’s targeted approach to:

  • Uncover the needs of unique employee segments to shortlist flexible work options that employees want and will use.
  • Assess the feasibility of various flexible work options and select ones that meet employee needs and are feasible for the organization.
  • Equip leaders with the information and tools needed to implement and sustain a flexible work program.
