Workplace Flexibility Practices Should Be . . . Flexible

Workplace flexibility practices should be … flexible. I think it’s a no-brainer.  Right? 
Flexibility in our workplaces is key these days in helping us get and keep great employees.  But those practices have to differ from company to company.   Different industries operate very differently, and what works well at one company may not work at all for another.  I have practiced HR in a publishing company, a manufacturing company, a blue collar government contractor, and an engineering services contractor, and sometimes practices that work well for one do not work at all for another.
