FlexCareers today launches FlexReady™, a new suite of products and services designed to help organisations get workplace flexibility right.
Founded in 2015 by investment bankers Marko Njavro and Joel McInnes, FlexCareers has been hugely successful, leveraging advanced AI technology to match talented people to flexible employment opportunities across Australia and New Zealand.
McInnes said, “From the outset, Marko and I realised that to successfully change the world of work would take more than smart technology solutions and a platform to promote those employers already doing flexibility well. We wanted to educate employers around the benefits of workplace flexibility and help them to stake positive steps forward on the journey. A big part of that was building a team of human resources experts, and having them proactively consult to organisations that need support.”
Ariane Virtue joined FlexCareers in August 2017 to develop the FlexReady™ offering. She said, “FlexCareers research and conversations with customers tell us that the desire to be flexible and inclusive is there. Unfortunately, a lack of knowledge and tools, difficulty articulating the business case to senior executives, and effectively managing the behavioural change required, create complex barriers to success.”
FlexReady™ will help organisations establish their starting point, conceptualise workplace flexibility in the context of their organisation, and prepare the business for change. Starting with a free FlexReady™ Health Assessment tool, followed by a full discovery and detailed training and change management program, FlexReady™ is a transformative offering designed to suit any organisation – wherever they are on their flexibility journey.
It’s an exciting time for FlexCareers. With a very successful investment round just completed, the company has a number of new product advancements underway, and is about to welcome a number of new consultants to the team. McInnes said, “Demand for program design and delivery, and consulting services continues to increase and we’re delighted to be supporting our customers in a holistic way, it’s all about effecting positive change that drives greater employee and customer satisfaction for our clients, and creates a more flexible future for FlexCareers’ community of 100,000 job seekers.”
