Soundbites: Determining Remote Work Eligibility and Talking to Leadership About Flexible Work

Have leaders at your institution embraced flexible work, viewing it is a way to boost employee engagement, productivity, retention and recruitment efforts? Or are they skeptical that flexible work arrangements can work for the long-term? In a recent CUPA-HR webinar, “Leading Into the Future of Flexible Work,” a panel of higher ed HR professionals discussed what their institutions are doing to implement changes on campus and how they are preparing for the future of work while ensuring they meet their institutional goals.

Listen to two quick soundbites from the webinar. The first dives into how higher ed leaders can determine which positions are suitable for remote work.

The second soundbite features tips for how to build a remote-work plan while keeping your institution’s guiding principles in mind and assuring leaders that remote work can enhance, not alter, what sets your institution apart.
