Flexibility. It's one of the most cited expectations of employees at present, yet in some organizations, it's also one of the most complex.

Why do people want it and why should employers provide it? What exactly does flexibility mean? What is the impact on team connection and connection to the organization's strategic and operational objectives? How can we make flexibility work such that both individual and organizational needs are met?

Veldhoen + Company are international thought leaders on flexible ways of working – and they've learned a thing or two over the past 26 years. In this session, they will be sharing their learnings on all of the above and providing insights and practical tips on how to make flexible working successful at an operational level.


Learning objectives:

  • Recognize what is meant by flexibility in the work place and able to describe the concept to colleagues
  • Define why flexibility is important right now
  • List the benefits of extending flexibility to employees and contrast that with the risks doing so and not doing so
  • Recognize what it takes to leverage value from providing greater flexibility and ovoid the risks of losing connection across teams and with organizational objectives, vision and values.
