The summit will take a look at ways American workplaces can adjust to the changing demographics of the workforce and adopt more family-friendly policies.
Lyons launched Clockwork, an interactive agency, in 2002. She has spearheaded several proposals to promote work/life balance, including allowing employees to work remotely, a Babies at Work program for parents transitioning from maternity and paternity leave and unlimited vacation time.
“We recognize, prioritize, and focus on the whole family — parents and children — in how we operate and interact,” Lyons said. “By empowering and enabling employees to make decisions about their life and their work, we create autonomy and greater commitment, as well as a shared value system. Feeling good about home and work creates a positive environment, reduces stress and improves performance.”
