Ontario Women's Directorate, Toronto.
Working in partnership with the Ontario Women's Directorate, Camco Inc. has taken a planned approach in determining appropriate workplace initiatives to help its employees address the issue of balancing paid work and family responsibilities. Camco surveyed employees to identify their needs and determine what kinds of programs would best respond to those needs. This results of Camco's survey and issues raised by the company's workforce are examined focusing primarily on flexible working arrangements--the option preferred by most Camco employees. Implications for employees, employers, and unions are discussed and an implementation plan is presented. This publication is part of the Ontario Women's Directorate Change Agent Program, the goals of which include improving the economic status and representation of women in the labor force and providing tangible examples of project initiatives for organizations to consider when developing their own employment equity programs. Chapters are: (1) Identifying Employee Needs; (2) Flexible Working Arrangements: Options and Issues; (3) Flexible Working Arrangements: Implications; and (4) Developing an Implementation Plan. Also included are a description of the Ontario Women's Directorate and a copy of the questionnaire. (JBJ)
