The Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College
2010 Apr 06 - Press Release - Legal Framework for States in Workplace Flexibility - A case study of Arizona and Michigan examining the legal frameworks utilized for flexible work arrangements, time off and career flexibility in their state work force
The States as Employers-of-Choice project is a collaborative effort with the Sloan Center on Aging & Work’s State Initiatives at Boston College. It is one of several Twiga efforts to promote family consciousness in the home, the workplace and the community. This project began in January 2008 and assists state governments in the recruitment, engagement, and retention of older workers through the use of workplace flexibility. The two year grant was awarded by the New York-based Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to promote the adoption of workplace flexibility in public sector agencies by focusing on current opportunities and challenges associated with the demographics of the public sector workforce and by working with state agencies in implementing workplace flexibility.
More than 220 State agencies in 27 states participated in the on-line survey from the Center on Aging from Boston College. Ten States were selected to participate in individual on-site visits from the Twiga Foundation. (To learn more about each state visit, click on the state name).
