Evaluating a Flexwork Proposal


Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


114 Mt Auburn Street, 4th floor, Conference room 406

Bring your lunch to this in-depth look at how to evaluate a flexible work arrangement proposal based on Harvard's University-wide flexible work guidelines. Nancy Costikyan, the director of Harvard’s Office of Work/Life, will review the essential ingredients of a flex proposal; how to assess your own attitude about workplace flexibility in general and flex for individual employees specifically; how to identify ways to evaluate the success of an arrangement after a trial period; and what to do when employees disclose personal reasons behind the proposal that trigger your emotions or certain legal requirements--or both. Issues of trust, candid conversations, transparency, and fairness will also be explored.
