Employee Engagement:  Supporting the Engines of Change

In the FlexWise™ system – and any employee-driven approach to flexibility – thorough training of employees is vital to success. Assuming that employees don’t need any particular attention in a rollout is a common and potentially lethal error. Training options will vary with company commitment, strategy and resources. They can include:

Instructive Guidelines   We design all our FlexWise™ guidelines as instructional tools.
    They provide everything employee users require to succeed. They offer rationale,
    description and mechanics for each option; they include self-assessments; address the
    demonstrated pros and cons; and offer best practices and model cases of flexible
    employees at work. Additional training elements can be added.

Online Trainings   If the devil is in the details, the success or undoing of FWAs occurs
    during implementation. Our online training suite ranges from orientation to the FlexWise™
    system to comprehensive guides on how to excel at telecommuting, remote work,
    compressed schedules and job sharing. Just-in-time and always accessible, these virtual
    coaches can introduce and sustain best practices in each option.

Brief Training   Live, highly interactive and carefully designed brief trainings for employees
    offer a time- and cost-effective means for shifting workforce attitudes toward flexible
    schedules. It is important to introduce more than potential users to the overall approach to
    flexibility. Discussion of benefits, challenges and processes can occur in 1.5 hour
    sessions we design for HR delivery. 

We work with clients to design a training mix that will produce the desired outcome in employee behavior. Since it is employees who execute options over time, they are major architects of the outcome of any initiative. Potential outcomes of training plans include:
  Understanding both the potential business value and employee satisfaction
     of flex

  Familiarity with the guidelines and business-based proposal process
  Comfort with and confidence in the decision-making tools and procedures
  Recognition that business impact, not personal reasons should drive

  Familiarity with the best practices in developing proposals and implementing options
