Recently SAGE hit Capitol Hill on behalf of the American Academy of Political and Social Science to help raise awareness on the issue of workplace flexibility. The Academy had published a featured issue of The ANNALS around the issue with the lead of editors Kathleen Christensen and Barbara Schneider. Being that workplace flexibility is an issue that impacts all American workers, we weren’t surprised at the response from legislators and their staff.
The Congressional briefing featured Kathleen, Program Director of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, a leading expert on workplace flexibilityand other industry experts:
Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, President and CEO of Society of Human Resource Management

- John C. Parry, Jr., CEO of Solix, Inc., a leading provider of program administration, qualification processing and customer care solutions for government and commercial clients.We’re happy to have had a small hand in bringing more attention to this issue which includes topics such as telecommuting, alternative scheduling, and job sharing.
