Event Description

The workplace has changed drastically in recent years.  The boundaries between work and home have blurred thanks to the fast-paced, global 24/7 economy, the pressures of competition and technology. It is more challenging than ever to manage (and feel a sense of satisfaction in) both our work and home lives. Thankfully, the workplace is shifting, and new ways of working called Workflex are becoming a critical part of the solution. As you think about improving Workflex in your career, there are many factors you’ll need to consider, including your own work-life values and understanding your employer’s perspective when it comes to business priorities.

Join WGR and special guests to learn more about workflex, why it’s so critical today, and how to make the business case for implementation.

Lisa Horn, Director, Congressional Affairs and Co-Director, Workplace Flexibility Initiative at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) will talk about the benefits of Workflex to employees and employers and provide tips on how to make the business case and the benefits of working in a flexible work environment. Hear from a WGR member who was able to implement a flexible work arrangement with her employer that has helped her accomplish goals on and off the job.
Webinar participants will:

  • Learn about multiple workflex options
  • Receive tips on how to make an individual workflex proposal 
  • Receive a copy of the When Work Works Workflex Employee Toolkit that has tips and best practices for making workflex a reality in your career


  • Lisa K. Horn, Workplace Flexibility Initiative, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
  • Carla Lochiatto, CAE, Associate Director, Public Policy, ASAE, WGR Board member, mother, wife, friend with a flexible work arrangement.
