Entrepreneurs are catalysts that bring an idea to life, but they never accomplish great things alone. Attracting a talented team and creating a culture where they can thrive is critical to founding a successful business. One way to help build a vibrant and diverse team is through flexible work policies.  
Flexible policies can make employees healthier, happier, and more productive, and businesses also reap significant additional benefits. In this session, a panel of successful business founders will share their experiences with flexible policies and how they can provide a strategic benefit to start-ups as well as established businesses. We’ll discuss how to leverage the advantages and address the challenges of flexible work policies for the benefit of the company and the employees.
