Flexible Work – The Importance of Work-Life Balance (April 11, 2017)
By Andy Pederson, Great Western Bank
Flexible work arrangements at Great Western Bank have allowed us to retain employees who may have otherwise looked for other job opportunities.
A wife has been able to care for a sick husband by working remotely from home, or wherever needed, at any given time of the day to accomplish work requirements and still be there for him when needed. Still, other employees have moved to other cities and states, for various reasons, and have been able to keep their current jobs with just a little accommodation. These employees either have found office space in one of our other locations or are working from home even in states in which we do not have a branch or office.
