One of the key demographics in particular need of work flexibility is working parents. Parents of infants and toddlers all-too-often struggle to find quality care to cover a fulltime rigid work schedule. Parents of school-aged children need flexibility for pick-ups and drop-offs, schedule changes, parent-teacher meetings, volunteer commitments, and activity attendance. These posts highlight the specific struggles of working parents when it comes to juggling personal and professional needs.
In different stages of their lives, people have different aspirations, responsibilities, and commitments, which may alter their relationship to work.
