April 13, 2018

In this episode, Lotus Yon, Director of Human Resourceas and Learning with Northwest Community Healthcare, shares her experience around creating a workplace culture that brings flexibility to life. This is not about policies and programs; it's about embedding, ingraining, and infusing the lifestyle of flexibility into our very fabric. It's about creating a culture that reinforces and clarifies the importance of flexibility at every turn - the way we act, the way we interact, and the way we work. We explore the difference between work-life-balance and work-life-integration. And we impart some wisdom around really meaning flexibility when we say "flexibility."
