Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 9, 2007
FlexJobs (http://www.flexjobs.com), the foremost site for telecommuting and flextime job opportunities internationally, proudly announces its selection as a key resource for baby boomers and other highly experienced employees. Many of these workers want opportunities to extend their professional careers, but are interested more in part-time or telecommuting opportunities at this point in their lives, according to a study recently conducted by FlexJobs.
"FlexJobs is a logical destination for this group, which includes valuable corporate mentors and top performers, since our focus is on jobs that provide for flexibility and work-life balance. And we are an excellent resource for employers wanted to find highly skilled, experienced candidates - and at a fraction of the cost that they would typically have to pay for a full-time employee with this level of qualifications," said Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs. "Boomers are an incredibly valuable segment of the labor market, representing 78 million people, of whom at least 25 percent plan to keep working past retirement age. Companies need to retain these people by creating a professional environment that welcomes change and rewards personal innovation."
Perks and Telecommuting: The New Benefits Package
Most companies want to keep boomers on board as long as possible through flexible hours and schedules, part-time positions and telecommuting. Nearly 80% of businesses surveyed plan to use these tools as their primary means of retaining key staff, while additionally offering enhanced pension formulas and bonuses. "Employers have a incentive to provide telecommuting and/or flextime positions for all workers, particularly more mature employees who want creative challenges and jobs that accommodate their family obligations. There is a direct correlation between increased job satisfaction and productivity among companies that embrace this reality. These policies establish a proverbial win-win situation for both labor and management," 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.
