From today's Wall Street Journal...
"Here's a novel approach to keeping women in the work force: Focus on men.
Some employers are trying to overcome a perceived stigma on flexible work schedules -- often viewed as a concession to women -- by redefining the issue as a quality-of-life concern for everyone. The approach is gaining traction, especially in the male-dominated financial-services sector, where employers have long struggled to retain and promote women.
Among the techniques companies are testing: highlighting successful men who have tapped flexible work arrangements; encouraging more employees to work from home part of the time; and promoting alternative career paths."
Makes sense. The idea of flexible scheduling doesn't have to be all about being a "mommy." It should really just be about the way you want work to fit into your life and how you work best. Maybe someday we'll get to a point where America comes to its senses and your employer lets you--man or woman--decide.
