Southern California Gas Company: Leveraging Work Flexibility Options for Organizational Success and Employee Engagement

2014 Talent Management Conference
Workplace Application: Learn how flexibility can be incorporated into your organization and why it can be an integral part of your organization’s talent attraction and retention.

Creating effective and flexible workplaces to make work “work” better for both the bottom line and for employees is a key business strategy. As companies look for new opportunities to increase employee engagement and reduce absenteeism and turnover, work flexibility offers a low cost solution that challenges organizations to start thinking differently about where, when, and how work can be accomplished. In this session, a 2013 Alfred P. Sloan award winner for workplace effectiveness and flexibility will discuss their innovative program and share keys to success, lessons learned, and the overall impact of offering work flexibility.

Monday, April 28, 2014 - 10:45am to 12:00pm
