Example #1: My sister got married last month. Unlike my own wedding just three years ago, the flurry of social media activity leading up to her wedding, on the day of the wedding and in the week that followed was truly incredible. We could track which groups of friends were en route to Hancock, Maine (where the wedding took place) based on various check-ins along their 5-hour drive.
In honor of National Flex Day and my employer being named to Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies list, I wanted to reflect on how flexibility at work has impacted me personally.
This summer, my daughter attended day camp (like so many other children in the US). And –like many other parents – I needed some flexibility at work so I could get her to and from camp at the proper time.
