Defining the Flexible Work Environment

Defining the Flexible Work Environment

Table of Contents


Overview

Most institutions have already communicated with faculty and staff about their expectations for returning to campus. Certain employees must return to the physical campus for some–if not all–days of the week, but other employees can still carry out their jobs with more flexible work schedules. In fact, this flexibility is essential if institutions want to retain their employees in the face of what many are calling the “mass exodus” or “great migration” of employee turnover. So as the start of the semester approaches, all of higher education is walking the line between enforcing institutional return-to-campus policy while still providing a flexible work environment for those who need it. And there is still a lot of grey area as to what ‘a flexible work environment’ means and what exactly it should consist of.

Join our panelist and other higher ed leaders across the country for practical discussion and idea-sharing about what the flexible work environment is shaping up to look like campus by campus. You’ll hear about specific policy and practice others are implementing and how central Human Resource divisions are working with supervisors to provide ongoing training and support along these lines.

Who should attend?

Human resources, finance & operations, and other leaders involved or interested in shaping what ‘a flexible work environment’ should look like for their campuses are invited to attend this discussion.
