I love my team. A herd of inspired UNICORNS. To achieve powerful results in the workplace and experience an amazing culture that makes going to work a time of joy filled with wonder and theater we need to be willing to do things differently. As the director of Provolution Health, a vitalistic chiropractic practice, we embrace flexible working.

Nick is a consultant with 460degrees, providing practical guidance, expertise and direction with clients as they embark and execute IT enabled transformation over the past 12 years. I have a deep passion and focus for projects and delivery in the education sector.

As a consultant and when I deliver projects, I regularly need to travel to clients at the same time as staying in touch with other experts at 460degrees across Australia. I also have two small children and a wife who works part time.

Finding the time to travel, attend to home life and stay connected means my day is never 9-5 and I always appreciate the flexibility that both 460degrees and my clients offer. Changing working hours, using a compressed week, working from home or even for being a stay at home dad for a period have all seen positive outcomes for myself and the clients I work with.

I strongly support the use of flexible working arrangements. It helps us all continue to find balance, and I am excited to see it becoming woven into organisations I work with.

At Stockland, We also understand that no two lives are the same. Work-life balance commitments continue to be important to employee wellbeing and workplace flexibility and a key reason why our people choose to stay working with us.

I am Bruno Senior Business Learning solutions Consultant at Gallup. My role is to help leaders, coaches and individuals discover their talents and improve their workplaces through Gallup’s learning solutions based on more than 80 years of human development research.

My mission is to work with clients to integrate a strengths-based approach and workplace engagement best practices into their organisations to achieve measurable performance outcomes.

What I am passionate about with flexibility at work is as a single dad and a leader at Gallup, I need to have a life that allows me to integrate my role as a single dad and my work. I am grateful to work for an organisation that allows me this working flexibility, trusts me as an employee and supports me as a parent. I would love to support single parents and help organisations by offering flexibility at work for everyone. It requires new processes in organisation, building manager capability by training for trust and performance measures based on outcomes.

Leaders and management practices require a common belief that when an organisation helps the individual, they will gain engagement and performance in return. I believe “Flexibility at work” is a great way to retain employees, create more engagement, become healthier and more productive as well.

I specialise in LGBTI+ workplace inclusion and work for an NGO who has close to 300 members across Australia. It is a demanding and highly visible role that can be emotionally strenuous but extremely rewarding, so having the ability to create a strong sense of work/life balance when you are on the move constantly from airport to airport is essential for my wellbeing. This includes walking meetings with my members, meditation, watching a lot of sunsets in all kinds of cities across Australia and working from home or a hotel to regroup and reenergise. The ability to recalibrate is essential to everyone’s ability to be a high performing individual in a diverse team that can communicate and collaborate from any location.
