1 Million for Work Flexibility

When you believe in something, really believe in it, you have no choice but to take and stand or become involved. We've done just that. We are joining forces with the many voices and companies who believe in creating work flexibility. 1 Million for Work Flexibility is a national initiative to bring people together and create a collective voice in support of work flexibility.

"In order to truly change workplace culture, we believe it is critical to engage the individuals who want and need work flexibility. Currently, change is typically driven by corporate HR departments. While the corporate efforts are valuable, we believe that both efforts—from individuals and from corporate headquarters—are needed in order to achieve more traction for change. By working together, we can help make work flexibility become a core part of the 21st century workplace."

We are joining forces with our friends and partners at FlexJobs, MomCorps and Business Talent Group along with many other great organizations like Working Mother Magazine, NAFE, MomRising, Women for Hire, eWork, Flexpaths and many many more (see the entire list here) to spread the word and encourage flexible work solutions for Moms, for Dads and for people everywhere.

About JVS: In these challenging times, JVS is dedicated to helping people overcome barriers to employment in order to find stable jobs and support their families. A job is more than a paycheck—it is the key to dignity, self-sufficiency, and independence. It is the chance to get back on your feet or start anew and become, once again or for the first time, a contributing member of the community.

Jewish Vocational Service was founded in the early 1930’s in response to the Great Depression. The clients coming through the agency’s doors today are facing similar problems: an overcrowded job market, limited resources, and the urgent need to provide for their families. As you can see, JVS has been down this road before and we bring decades of experience, extensive community partnerships and a wealth of resources to those in need of a helping hand; everyone from professionals to refugees.

With 18 training and counseling centers across Southern California, JVS is able to help nearly 30,000 people from all faiths and circumstances. We also work with city, state and government agencies, as well as other non-profits, to ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need.

At the core of JVS’ programs is a comprehensive range of Career Services, which help people assess their skills and interests, refine their job search skills, match them with the right career options or assist them to transition to a new career. These tools can be used for long term planning or short term solutions, and apply to everyone, from at-risk youth to people with disabilities to downsized professionals and seasoned executives. We also offer specialized training for entry level positions in a range of industries, including financial services, healthcare and green technology, as well as innovative mentoring programs. In addition, JVS assists refugee and immigrants with specialized services, including acculturation, placement and training.
