Since 2003, Workplace Flexibility has engaged in research, outreach and consensus-building activities toward making workplace flexibility the "new normal" in the American workplace. We have:
- Objectively analyzed how current law and practices either support or hinder workplace flexibility. Areas of study include labor, employment, anti-discrimination, tax, health and benefits.
- Spurred meaningful, bipartisan dialogue with a politically diverse range of stakeholders – including employer and employee advocates, small business and large, aging, family and faith-based organizations, labor unions, and Democratic and Republican policymakers in Washington and beyond.
These conversations were convened through Workplace Flexibility 2010's:
- Legal Working Group
- Phased Retirement Working Group
- National Advisory Commission
- Community Policy Forums
- Congressional Briefings
- Developed the first comprehensive set of national public policy recommendations to advance workplace flexibility – including Flexible Work Arrangements, Time Off, and Career Flexibility – that can meet the needs of both employers and employees.
Policy recommendations on Flexible Work Arrangements are outlined in Workplace Flexibility 2010's:
Documents outlining Workplace Flexibility 2010's policy recommendations on Time Off and Career Flexibility will be released in late 2010.
