'Life in Congress' Webinar: Enhancing Workplace Flexibility in Congress
Organizer: Congressional Management Foundation
"How do I know staffers are working if I can't see them?" "We tried a flexible work schedule. A few staffers ruined it for all of us." "We care about our constituents and they need responses immediately." "My boss will NEVER go for it."
Well, just how DO you overcome these objections? Join us for this webinar that will feature the "Workflex Toolkit for Congress," a practical guide with worksheets, assessments, and tips for how to make flexible working options a reality in your office. You will also hear from congressional managers who will provide their perspectives on:
- The strategies and tactics their offices have tried to help staff better manage their work and home lives;
- How they developed their workflex policies;
- The benefits they've seen in their office to having family-friendly or more flexible policies; and
- Their advice for other offices on modifying their employment practices.
