The Flex Work Imperative: Global Attitudes on the New Way to Work

Over one-third of employees would leave their current employer if offered more flexible work arrangements, according to a recent study by Unify.

In fact, workers around the world are demanding more flexibility about where and when they do their jobs – and it’s not just a hype cycle or water cooler talk. New legislation, court cases, even a presidential order – are requiring businesses across the world to be more accommodating of employees' personal obligations outside the workplace.

In this webinar, Unify presents our latest global research in which we quantify the demand for flexible work options, detail employee and management preferences, and outline ways business leaders can respond to the changing work environment while protecting productivity.

    Jenna N. Filipkowski, PH.D.- Director of Research, Human Capital Institute Padraic McConville- EVP, Corporate Development at
    While some organizations remain unresponsive to the transitions in their employees’ lives, smart companies understand that proactively supporting employees through important life events is not just compassionate, it’s good business. More and more high-profile companies such as Google, Netflix, Adobe, and Microsoft are offering extended paid maternity and paternity leave as a talent attraction and retention tool. Having family-friendly benefits and policies is a start, but it is not enough. The most positive impact on organizational outcomes occurs when leaders foster a supportive work-life culture.

    In this signature research conducted in partnership between Kindercare Education and HCI, we explore how organizations are supporting working parents before, during, and after their leave for a birth or an adoption. Based on a research study of almost 300 U.S. organizations, you will learn:

    Benchmarks and future plans for family-friendly benefits and policies, including paid leave
    How effective these work-life offerings are at attracting talent and preventing turnover
    How HR functions can help working parents assimilate back into workforce regardless of the amount of leave taken

    All registrants will receive a copy of the research report.
