Professional Development and Employee Engagement Opportunities

Employee Engagement

Flex Work Series– This series was developed in response to focus group feedback requesting more information and options regarding flex work. If you’re interested in learning more about flex work, please join us for Flex Work Series: Flex Work 101  Friday, April 29 from 11-11:50am CT.

During this session we will answer questions like what is flex work and what are the different types? What exactly is our flex work policy? What makes some positions more or less suitable for flex work than others? We will also offer strategies for having conversations about flex work with your supervisor. Stay tuned for more Flex Work sessions in May!
