Workforce Flexibility Just Makes Good Business Sense for Desautel Hege

At Desautel Hege, workforce flexibility has always been an important value.  Our founder, Jim Desautel, knew the importance of work-life balance, particularly ensuring one had time for an appropriate amount of golf.  All kidding aside, we work in a demanding business and have high expectations of all our team members.  Our work often includes evening and weekend commitments and periods of converging deadlines.  We have always felt strongly about providing our team with flexibility, both because it’s the right thing to do for our people AND because it makes good business sense.

Our team members have full lives, with families, interests, volunteer commitments, hobbies and passions outside the workplace. We believe that supporting them in their ability to balance these things with their jobs is good for our company—it creates satisfied employees, happy clients and a more productive workplace.  Over the years we have developed programs ranging from flex-time to modified work weeks, we have created training and continuing education programs, supported team member’s pursuit of degrees and professional credentials and have worked to create a family-friendly and life-friendly work place.

We also try to have fun together….whether that means playing a little foosball at the end of the day, or celebrating everyone’s birthday….our people are our greatest asset and we believe investing in them and supporting them is job one.
