    Workplace Flexibility and Your Bottom Line

    Workplace flexibility was once a "nice to have" benefit to employees, but it is now becoming a driver of business success. For employees facing growing traffic problems, dual career management and a generation placing greater emphasis on work-life balance, flexible work arrangements are more important than ever. For employers who depend on workers to drive value in the marketplace, flexible work arrangements have proven to enable greater engagement, overall employee health and well-being, and a desire to stay with the organization.

    This panel of leaders from winners of the When Work Works Awards will share how they have facilitated flexible work arrangements and how it has benefited their organizations' bottom lines.
