Flexibility for holiday time off increasingly important in diverse workforce
from Society for Human Resource Management
Do you know which holidays the employees in your workforce celebrate? When it comes to office decorations, staff parties and time off, managers should be flexible and accommodating whenever possible, while soliciting ideas from the rank and file, experts say. "Most of our clients are trying to be as inclusive as possible year-round," said Carol Sladek, a work/life expert for Chicago-based Aon Hewitt, a human resources and management consulting firm. "That's particularly important around the holidays. They have folks of lots of different religions and practices that don't necessarily follow the holiday calendar we are used to. Creating that atmosphere of inclusion around the office is important."
