ThriveGlobal has an excellent article on the importance of a flexible schedule to women in the workforce. (I’m pretty sure for men, too, perhaps just not the urgent need.)
A new site, Werk, focuses on flexible, career-building work. With situations such as child rearing, pursuing an advanced degree, and family care issues, Werk is a site whose time has come. Its mission is to reinvent work for women by providing a marketplace of career-building, flexible career opportunities for women. They optimize six types of flexibility so that one can customize. 80% of the companies in the United States are already providing some type of workplace flexibility, but the challenge is in the implementation (only 1-25%). With 30% of women who have had a child leaving the workforce, this site is one of the first to work to offer options for women to continue their careers.
