Flexible work settings, such as telecommuting and working from home, give employees more control over their lives. Flexibility is beneficial to both employees and employers since it improves employee morale and productivity.

This online course explores how flexible work choices may benefit both an employer’s and employee’s bottom lines while also offering a variety of answers that are suited to today’s culture.
