PHILADELPHIA, PA (December 2, 2020) – Rick Grimaldi, partner at Fisher Phillips, one of the country’s preeminent labor and employment law firms representing employers, has published “FLEX: A Leader’s Guide to Staying Nimble and Mastering Transformative Change in the Workplace.” The groundbreaking text explores the surprising and fundamental ways the world of work is remaking itself in America today and how business leaders can successfully navigate this sea change and disruption.
“Flex” is a blueprint for business leaders on how to successfully navigate unprecedented workplace disruption and embrace change as an opportunity to learn and grow. It addresses the creative education and training we need for tomorrow’s workforce as well as compelling ways to lead meaningfully on climate change.

Business leaders at all levels should be preparing now to address the changing employer-employee relationship. It’s just not optional anymore,” said Grimaldi. “’Flex’ is a real-world guide for savvy leaders who are ready to adapt, reinvent and transform their workplace to win more talent, customers and profits.
