On this episode of the Employee Cycle podcast, we have Daniel Choi, SVP of People at Slickdeals, joining us to discuss why fully flexible work should be a “choose your own adventure” experience. We cover what fully flexible work means and how it works in organizations, the pros, and cons of guardrails, how employees react to fully flexible work (believe it or not, some don’t care for it), and what HR leaders should consider before implementing such a concept, and much more!

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • First off, how did Daniel Choi go from playing and coaching sports to the wonderful world of HR?
  • Secondly, what is your definition of fully flexible work?
  • Next, how does fully flexible work get played out in the workforce? And how did you communicate the concept to your employees?
  • What are some of the options you provide your employees for fully flexible work? And do you put up any guardrails and/or guiding principles?
  • Have there been any issues your organization has experienced with such a dispersed workforce?
  • How did new hires (and employees) respond to a fully flexible work concept when your organization first announced it during the pandemic? 
  • What should HR leaders think about to get this same idea up and running, such as strategy, implementation, communication, culture, etc.?
  • Key Tips: Culture sets standards and behaviors. And depending on your industry, this may not work for every position, such as in healthcare. Make sure you have change agents within the organization so you can communicate well and improve along the way.
