A major stumbling block to enabling more people to access flexible work and careers are the misconceptions about workplace flexibility that abound. DCA has identified seven commonly held myths and presents facts to debunk them in a new Myth Busting Flexibility Tool.
DCA’s CEO Lisa Annese says organisations and individuals are discouraged from engaging in flexible work by myths and misconceptions. "Many employees want access to flexible work but are discouraged by a workplace culture that views anything other than full-time face time work as second rate."
DCA is excited to support the launch of NOW – Australia’s response to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. We encourage all workplaces to visibly support this campaign and send the message that sexual harassment, intimidation and abuse will not be tolerated.
DCA's WordsAtWork materials encourage reflection and discussion at work about what respectful and inclusive language looks like.
