Flexible Work Public Policy Platform
On May 13, Workplace Flexibility 2010, an organization at Georgetown University, released its summary report: Public Policy Platform on Flexible Work Arrangements.
It's a set of policy solutions to expand Americans’ access to flexible work arrangements such as compressed workweeks, predictable schedules, and telecommuting.
The report represents the end of a five-year review of research and listening to employer, employee, and consumer representatives on all sides of the issue, left and right, public and private sectors, management and workers. It tries to provide a blueprint for the White House, Congress, and other policymakers to make workplace flexibility more common in America today. It also gives examples of effective business practices.
Do you think the blueprint succeeds? Do you think these ideas will work? Can you think of other flexible work practices that the U.S. should pursue?
