Flex@work is this consumer-goods company’s alternative-work-options program, which allows employees (more than 75% of whom take advantage) to reduce or adjust their hours, work from home, compress their schedules or take leaves of absence. In a recent survey, those who used it reported feeling more energized, supported and able to deal with the demands of the job than their peers. That’s critical for women, who make up 38% of all management hires here. Those who give birth or adopt get 16 fully paid weeks off; peer mentoring is available to new mothers as they come back from maternity leave. Employeeresource groups bring together women and working parents.
