November 8, 2017, New York: Enago, a leading provider of English language editing services for the global research community, has partnered with 1 Million for Work Flexibility (1MFWF) to help raise awareness about the benefits of flexible work options and to promote positive changes in businesses. By joining the efforts of 1MFWF, Enago is helping to transform standard workplace norms.
Serving as the first national initiative to build support for work flexibility, 1MFWF is striving to bring together 1 million individuals, non-profit organizations, and businesses to voice their support for alternative employment options. Flexible work possibilities include part-time employment, varied time schedules, telecommuting, job sharing, condensed work weeks, and freelance options.
As a global company, Enago keenly understands the importance of flexible work prospects. The company offers numerous freelance opportunities to professionals, including editors in sciences, engineering, business, and economics. By supporting flexible work options, Enago is able to bring together a first-rate team of staff members, editors, and subject matter experts to ensure that clients receive the best service possible.
Along with Enago, supporters of 1MFWF include Working Mother, the Wharton Work/Life Integration Project, the Alliance for Work-Life Progress, Thomson Reuters, Mom Corps, the National Association of Female Executives, Work+Life Fit, Convergys, Catalyst, MomsRising, and many more.
“We, at Enago, have learned from practical experience, the value that flexible hiring practices bring to our company, our employees, and our clients,” said Robert Kasher, Vice President-Strategic Alliances of Enago. “It allows us to maintain a much bigger profile and access to expertise than many companies far larger than us, and that gives our clients more choices and better service. Flex hiring leads to leaner processes, more productivity, and most importantly, happier employees.”
Speaking about the partnership, Emma Plumb, Director of 1 Million for Work Flexibility, said, “Work flexibility is a necessity for the globalized 21st century workforce, and Enago's commitment to flex reflects their leadership in translation services for the global community. 1 Million for Work Flexibility is thrilled to have Enago join our coalition of organizations working to advance flexible work.”
