Why Flexibility is Important to Your Recruitment Strategy

It is alarming to still hear the challenges that many individuals have once recruited into an organization that describes themselves as providing “flexibility”. In working with professionals of all ages and all organizational levels, it is still evident that many organizations spruik this right during the attraction phase, but once reality hits, clearly do not have an environment that supports flexible work arrangements.

I was at the bank with my son the other day and it got me thinking. Each day I put any spare change into a jar in the kitchen that we refer to as “The Sam Fund.” Every penny gets put into his savings account, along with any money he earns, finds or receives as a gift. When the jar gets filled (or my 12-year-old can’t restrain himself), we head off to the coin counter at the bank.
