Focus on Workplace Flexibility

November 30, 2010

Today I will be reporting live from the Focus on Workplace Flexibility Conference at Georgetown Law in Washington, D. C.

Follow along and ask questions – you can read position papers at http://workplaceflexibility.org and see highlights of the conference as-it-happens via my twitter feed at http://twitter.com/womenplanetsci.

These researchers, academics, and business leaders are here to make a difference. Today, I’m excited to be in their company.

Is it important? You tell me. Comment, tweet, or send me a note. Does workplace flexibility matter to you? or are you ok with working 8-5 M-F 50-51 weeks a year, with no breaks aside from lunch, regardless of physical, social, emotional, volunteer, travel, or research-related needs?

    Whilst some jobs may necessitate a stringent attitude to time-keeping; such as a Fire-Fighter or astronaut , most can and should offer flexi-work hours. Also; Burn out from working too many hours is counter productive and drastically reduces quaility output. Even if one loves the work, tiredness reduces capacity to work effectively. Flexi-hours is the way to go. A Happy work force is a productive work force.

    There should be some flexibility in workplace so that an employee of the organization feels better and comfortable at the place. Nowadays, most big organizations have already started providing this facility to increase the level of comfort in the mind which in turn increase the productivity of the person.
