Shake Up the Workplace

Not only has the number of American women entering the workforce plateaued, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts we'll hit our peak share of the labor force -- at just 47 percent -- in 2025. What should we expect if the proportion of working women declines? Reduced standards of living and slowing economic growth. Horrifying story, bro! Want a way to attract and keep women in the workforce, not to mention reduce employee turnover and increase engagement? Allowing for schedule flexibility helps pretty much everyone, but it particularly benefits women who shoulder family caregiving responsibilities. You could also shoot for a job with the NHL.
