If you’re a parent in Edmonton, you’re going to want to learn more about WorkEvolution. It’s a tool that connects employers with professionals who are seeking flexible employment, in an easy to use format.
Work Evolution can help you to find employment, with flexibility, so you’ve got the time to fit your life into work.
What does flexible work mean? Flexible work can mean part time (fewer than forty hours each week) or working from home. Flexible work can also mean short-term employment, (seasonal or freelancing) or work that can be completed off-hours, helpful if you’re trying to save on childcare and offset a partner’s traditional work schedule.
What does Work Evolution mean for parents?
One of the most common questions that we hear in any of the conversations that we have with parents, both mothers and fathers, is how to find that balance of work and family. Finding a career that allows parents to work from home, or find a flexible work environment isn’t a surefire way to find that balance, but it is a way to be in control of your schedule.
That’s where Work Evolution comes in. Work Evolution allows parents to findprofessional employment and careers that come with a flexible work environment, where you’re going to be able to make those activities that you might otherwise miss.
How does it work?
Work Evolution members receive a lot of benefits for only twelve dollars a month (the price of two fancy coffees!). They have access to a job board full of professional roles that the Work Evolution team has validated as truly flexible. They have also weeded out the scams and MLM opportunities.
Members also receive access to research on the organizations that are posting roles, which are helpful for creating job applications and preparing for interviews. Lastly, members receive discounts on events and activities hosted by Work Evolution and their partners.
Work Evolution also shares a lot of free materials with professionals and parents interested in flexible work, including tips on flexible working and profiles of professionals who are doing it successfully.
Working from Home
Working from home is one form of flexibility. We know that it can be tricky – there are more distractions than working in the office, and as with everything, it can be hard to find a balance. We’re a team of parents who are often answering emails while being climbed on by toddler’s or getting up early in the morning to create content and curate images. We know what it’s like to have the flexibility – and that’s why we feel like Work Evolution is such an incredible asset to local parents.
