Most “good” workplaces offer flexible work arrangements. What helps make Baird not just good, but great, is that we encourage associates to take advantage of these unique benefits – and many do.

Flexibility at Baird means many different things, including:

  • Staggering work hours to meet daily parenting needs
  • Telecommuting
  • Job sharing
  • Summer hours
  • Accommodating community service
  • Special arrangements to deal with family emergencies or other needs

We’ve found that – more than just being a "nice thing to do" – giving our employees the flexibility they need just makes good business sense.
