Here’s a buzzword that’s been floating around the HR & benefits world since the beginning of the pandemic (and even before): flexibility.
Flexibility now not only includes flexible workdays, but also flexible work times within the day, flexible workplace options, and even flexible benefits themselves.
And organizations not offering maximum flexibility are quickly falling behind when it comes to employee retention, talent acquisition, and overall employee satisfaction.
In a recent piece for Workspan, Lisa Bomrad, VP of Human Resources at Homethrive, notes offering flexibility can improve workplace equity.
“In terms of flexible employee benefit options, benefits professionals are looking at entire packages to ensure that overall benefits packages are equitable. Some employers are even giving employees a stipend to apply to benefit options of their choice.”
Forward-thinking, progressive organizations across the country are now offering Homethrive, a family caregiving benefit, as an option for their employees struggling to balance career, family, and caregiving.
