Flex in the City (Houston)
"In Houston, Mayor Bill White has taken a personal role in fostering a workplace flexibility initiative. The Houston effort is designed not only to give workers more control over their lives, but also to reduce traffic congestion. The Mayor and his staff are gearing up for "Flex in the City," a two-week period designed to get more employers to adopt a workplace flex option. This issue brief, the fourth in CLASP's work-life balance series, links to a live 10-minute interview with the Mayor and also points to other programs and legislation around the U.S. that make the connection between workplace flexibility and reduced traffic congestion. 4 pages. 8/1/2006"
