Event description

Description

9-day fortnights, work from home, job shares and flexible start / finish times - the flexible work arrangement options are endless! To attract and retain the best talent, it is critical that employers are keeping up with modern working trends.

In one study, 80% of those surveyed stated that they were more likely to stay longer with an existing employer should that employer provide them with the flexibility of working remotely or from home, and most employees (52% of men and 51% of women) say they are prepared to forego a percentage of their pay in exchange for greater flexibility in their working arrangements*.

Many employers are now offering flexible work - but most feel it is not optimally managed for employee output and culture building. In this lunch and learn employer discussion, we'll workshop how employers can overcome the challenges of managing a flexible workforce:

  • Creating and retaining company culture when employees work remotely
  • Managing communication and productivity
  • Ensuring flexible work arrangements aren't taken for granted
  • Evaluating the impact on other staff members and their flexible work expectations
  • Managing problematic remote working arrangements

As we know, textbook strategies don't always translate to perfect local solutions. Digital Talent Co. is providing a forum to share flexible workforce experiences, insights tips and tricks with fellow Brisbane-based employers.
