THE FLEXIBLE WORKPLACE –
A GUIDE FOR MANAGERS IN A UNIONIZED ENVIRONMENT

Description
Success in a rapidly changing business environment requires organizations to seamlessly weave flexible ways of working into the fabric of the organization; into how work is structured, managed and accomplished. A flexible workplace is one that uses and is supportive of flexible work practices as a strategy to meet the dual agenda - the needs of both business and employees; in other words, a supportive, results-based culture.
