    Demographic and technological transformations are the new workplace reality, forcing HR and organizations to reimagine how work gets done to ensure business competitiveness.  Learn how you can drive business success by harnessing the power of workplace flexibility (“workflex”) to manage these workforce changes and support your organizational goals and strategy.  Explore how workflex can add value to the bottom line at your organization by improving retention and employee health and well-being, reducing absenteeism and real estate costs, and increasing productivity with better engagement and a solid business continuity strategy.  This session will also help you make a strong business case for the value of workflex to your leadership team, using strategic workforce planning data and performance metrics, and by benchmarking your worklife offerings and leveraging other resources available under the SHRM-Families and Work Institute partnership.
