Rebroadcast • The “F” Word: Employer Flexibility

We did some digging into some of the advertised benefits through the early 2000s into the early 2010s, and it’s a bizarre trip down memory lane. Here are a few of our favorite benefits: “free mechanical bull rides any time,” “onsite live workout classes and massage,” or “a personal assistant for every employee, free beer Fridays, housecleaning services every month, and the best homemade guacamole served in culver city and you can have as much as you want.”

This was an early expression of workplace flexibility when it was a lever we could pull for recruiting great talent. But the mood has changed over the last few years, and in this week’s rebroadcast, Terry Cook, Jillian Derby, and Kelly McInnis join Pete Wright to describe the current environment around employer flexibility and answer the question: what does it mean to be a flexible employer today?

Each week we will showcase a bite-size conversation dedicated to helping you get your arms around another HR challenge. The people on this show have decades of experience, and this is our chance to share that knowledge with you.
