Flexible Work Policies: Building a Team that Thrives

Entrepreneurs are the catalysts that bring an idea to life, but they never accomplish great things alone. Attracting a talented team and creating a culture where they can thrive is critical to growing a successful business. One way to help build a vibrant and diverse team is through flexible work policies. Flex policies can include everything from part time roles to home offices to adjustable work hours, to name a few.

Flexible policies can make employees healthier, happier, and more productive, and businesses also reap significant benefits. Despite this, many leaders still have concerns and questions: Which policies are the best? The riskiest? How do you maintain a strong culture? How do you keep a level playing field for everyone?

In this session, a panel of successful business founders will share their experiences with flexible policies and how they can provide a strategic benefit to start-ups as well as established businesses. We’ll discuss how to leverage the advantages, minimize the risks, and use flexible policies to the benefit of all.
