Implementing Flexible Working, Wed 13 Nov


Long commutes and easier access to technology have helped make flexi-work a real option for most businesses. A flexible workplace is also increasingly more attractive to employees at all stages of life. For flexibility to really work, the needs of the individual, the business and the team all need to be met.

This session will cover:

  • The different types of flexible working (role/place/hours/leave - remote working, graduated retirement, working around personal commitments, etc)
  • The barriers and how to overcome them, especially for a small business
  • Managing aspects such as supervision, team culture, and health and safety
  • Measuring the impact on employee engagement, productivity and wellbeing

When: Wed 13 Nov, 7.30am - 9am
Where: GETBA office - Level 1, 1 Sir William Ave, East Tamaki (parking on Sir William Ave & Lady Ruby Dr)
Presenter: Kim Ahern, POD Consulting
