Creating Effective Workplaces for Now and in the Future – Flexible Workplace Strategies

In 2012, Engineers Australia’s Women in Engineering National Committee (WIENC) led a workshop with a number of successful organisations with the aim of developing a blueprint on successful in-house professional women’s programs. Due to increased interest from organisations wanting to achieve greater diversity, and in particular attract and retain more women in the engineering industry, WIENC facilitated another round table discussion with industry partners, this time focusing on flexible workplace strategies to create more effective workplaces.

Work-life balance, or balancing family life, is not limited to women. Current and future trends indicate that work-life balance is also a goal for men, single people and the majority of any workforce.

This brochure outlines:

  • Various case studies demonstrating successful work-life balance;
  • Strategies for creating effective workplaces by implementing work-life balance opportunities; and
  • A check list for organisations and individuals for before, during and after changes in working arrangements.
