#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT). Remember, the #TChat Twitter chat will follow from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about workplace innovation and how we can fuse disruption and adoption. This week we're going to talk about the growing number of professionals who telecommute and work from home — and who get the work done - another form of evolving workplace innovation. Progressive companies today emphasize work-life fit (not balance, thank you) that includes some form of workplace flexibility as a “business strategy,” not an employee benefit. Workplace flexibility has been shown to reduce absenteeism, turnover, real estate costs, utilities and other expenses, while in the same breath improving attracting and retaining talent, employee engagement, productivity and much more. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guests: Lisa Horn, Co-Leader of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative and a SHRM Senior Government Relations Advisor, and Susan Lovegren, SVP of HR at Plantronics, a global leader in audio communications for businesses and consumers that recently launched their Smarter Working initiative. This will be another important show for us all, so talk about changing the corporate mindset of clocking time in a cubicle.
