Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 26, 2007
FlexJobs (http://www.flexjobs.com), the foremost site for telecommuting and flextime job opportunities internationally, proudly announces its role as a trusted resource for female professionals. This crucially important demographic is the key to ongoing business success, as companies increasingly recognize that job flexibility is essential to retaining women.
"FlexJobs owes its origins to the proven relationship between keeping employees connected to their jobs while also respecting the life decisions and specific needs of highly qualified, committed female executives. I am a member of this group myself, having recently become a new mother who finds herself balancing my family life with my professional goals. We founded FlexJobs to fulfill this mission," said Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs. "Women simply want more flexibility in when, where and how they get their job done. For example: nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of women surveyed by the Harvard Business Review cite flexible work arrangements as being either extremely or very important to them. Additionally, it's in the economic interests for companies to respect and support these things by offering flextime or telecommuting positions. That's the best way to maximize employee morale and productivity without costly job turnover and absenteeism."
Provide Flexibility in the Arc of a Career
It is not merely a workday or workweek that needs to be more flexible; it is the entire arc of a career. "Making flexible arrangements succeed over the long term requires an inviting set of policies and genuine acceptance by employers. Companies that initiate these programs actually nurture ambition and advance the careers of America's most talented female executives," declared Ms. Fell.
Networked among companies and workers worldwide, FlexJobs is the premier resource for telecommuting, flextime, and international job opportunities. The site complements the needs of employers interested in, or who already have, a flexible work environment, pairing them with skilled professionals throughout the world. FlexJobs is a cost effective way for companies to increase productivity and locate the best available talent.
