More than just remote work: How companies can keep women in the workforce
Corporate America is in need of a reboot.
That’s what advocates are calling for as working parents — especially women — are looking for more flexibility and other changes to help them juggle work and family life.
More than 84% of companies are offering some flexibility during the pandemic, according to a new survey from global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. It polled 201 human resources executives from companies of various sizes and industries nationwide March 2 to 12.
When asked if the flexibility would extend past the pandemic, 95% reported some or all elements would continue. About 84% said they are retaining remote work options for their teams.
