There's was plenty of negative buzz this week over Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's comments concerning flexible work options. Mayer, a mom herself, announced plans to discontinue the use of flexible work from home offices.
We spoke with a Sioux City law firm that prides itself on accommodating their employees and their families.
Goosmann Law Firm is owned by Attorney Jeana Goosmann not only does she have two young kids herself, but a majority of her employees also have children.
Goosmann likes to be flexible and understanding about her employee's busy personal schedules.
In fact, it was one thing that attracted young attorney, and mom herself, Lindsay Buchheit. Buchheit actually came to her interview with baby in tow!
Buchheit says, "It very much surprised me when she said, 'oh don't worry about it just go ahead and bring your 4 month old baby in,' and it was the strangest experience getting dressed for that interview in my suit going up the elevator with a brief case in one hand and my 4 month old in the other."
Buchheit is thrilled with how accommodating her job has been to her and her family.
For Jeana, it just makes sense to make sure your employees are happy.
Goosmann says, "I think it's important if you want to have the best of the best and retain them in the workforce especially through the more difficult juggling years where they might be young parents go ahead and be flexible. Those few years where you are flexible will really pay off in the long run."
Goosmann says with today's technology and many ways to stay connected there is no reason why an employer shouldn't be flexible and accommodating to their employees.
