Poll Voters Say “Keep It Flexible”

Best Places to Work in Indiana companies offer a variety of benefits that help them earn that honor. When we asked you which were most valuable from an employee perspective, the "F’s" won:

  • 43%: flexible scheduling
  • 37%: family friendly options (telecommuting, job share, etc.)

One could reasonably argue those two are closely related. And that’s fine, because remember this isn’t  a scientific poll. The bottom line is that people want choices in combining their work and family lives. If they are good employees, those choices and employer understanding may make them even more productive.

By the way, a comprehensive wellness program received the other 20% of the vote. Learn more about the BPTW program for 2013.
