Want to modernize your company’s culture?
Start by asking these four questions
- Are you looking at total compensation, benefits and rewards holistically to include work and life needs of employees?
- Are you actively working to prevent or eliminate stigmas commonly associated with parental leave and flexibility?
- Do company policies match what’s really happening on the ground? If you allow flexibility, will people who use it be viewed as highly committed and ambitious? Are you rewarding results, or “punching the clock”?
- Is this a preference, tradition or requirement? Take a morning meeting. Is “in person” preference, or could you achieve the same results virtually? Is the meeting time tradition, or could it be later to help accommodate others’ schedules? It may be a requirement — and that’s also acceptable.
