Congressional Briefing on Flexible Work Arrangements: Working for America’s Employers and Employees

Employers, employees, and union representatives will highlight flexible work arrangements that have been critical to their success.

Monday, December 14, 2009, 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Capitol Visitors’ Center, SVC-208 & 209, Washington, DC

(Senate and House staff are both invited to attend this briefing.)

Flexible work arrangements have played a key role in helping employers attract and retain employees, reduce absenteeism and turnover and improve productivity. Likewise, flexible work arrangements have enabled many workers (both hourly and salaried) to hold down jobs while caring for family members, addressing their own health conditions, pursuing job training, and addressing other life circumstances that arise -- everything from military deployments to domestic violence.

At this briefing, employers, workers and union representatives will describe why flexible work arrangements have been effective business and workforce strategies, and the hallmarks of successful flexible work arrangements programs.
