Presenting “Be the Change - Make Work-Life Harmony Work" on Wednesday, 27 October 2021 at 7.30pm over ZOOM. 

Event Synopsis: 

Implementation of Flexible Work Arrangements is one of the key strategies that an organisation can tap on as a solution to enable employees to achieve work-life harmony. The managers/employees may be considering FWA due to various work-life challenges such as childcare for new-borns or young children, supervision of children during critical school years, pursuit of professional development or care-giving for elderly family members. An employee who is able to manage family and personal needs is likely to do well at work and produce better results for the organisation. The speaker Ean will share about the various types of FWA and give tips on tapping on these solutions to attract, retain and engage employees as a win-win strategy for the organisation.

This session will be moderated by Rebecca Chan. Ean Yeo will be the speaker with Daniel Chia & Ricky Lin as panelist.
