Warning teleworking can damage your career
"Work-life balance perks are not designed for people who want to shoot for the top"
Susan DePhillips, Author of “Corporate Confidential: What It Really Takes to Get to the Top” in an interview with Workforce Management magazine challenges the notion that it is possible to take advantage of employee-friendly programs such as flexihours and teleworking to raise a family and still get to the top rung of corporate management.
One of the most interesting things in this interview are the mindsets of the fifty senior executives who Susan interviewed for her book.
The critical question it raises is this:
Are these executives simply dinosaurs who will soon become extinct as organisational boundaries continue to blur or are they down-to-earth pragmatists who recognise the real facts of life of corporate advancement?
