Employees Want the Next President's Agenda to Make Work Life Flexibility Easier for Companies and Individuals
Date:12/6/2007

that entailed working differently over making more money. When considering a different work style, 35 percent of those surveyed rated flexibility as most important and 16 percent rated responsibilities that better use their talents.

Of the 35 percent who chose flexibility, only 5 percent said reducing their schedule by more than 10 hours was most important. This was equal for men and women and counters previous research suggesting more people are interested in "part-time" employment. Working the same number of hours but with a more flexible schedule was most important to 13 percent, while 10 percent would opt to cut their schedule by 1 to 10 hours and 7 percent would prefer to work from a location outside the office.

That's the case for employees of national accounting firm BDO Seidman, LLP, the 2007 winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility in association with the Families and Work Institute's When Work Works program. BDO Seidman's Houston office has a virtual team of 10 employees who live in Austin and work from their homes and clients' offices. Jay Duke, the firm's southwest region assurance leader, believes the team's flexible work life situation was a big factor in winning a new client engagement. A major Austin-based company awarded BDO their business in part because of the local presence of the team who live and work in the area, even though BDO does not have an official office in that market.

"Work life flexibility gave us a competitive advantage," said Duke. "We view flexibility as a core part of our 21st century global business strategy. By st
