Factors that have lead organizations to adopting flexible working practices and family-friendly policies include globalization bringing about more competition, changes in family values and structures, government legislation, and other factors relating to the changes made within a larger social system (Uhl-Bien, Osborn, & Schermherhorn, 2014). The social system itself has changed over generations. Women and minorities are becoming more present in the workplace, family structure changes from the original nuclear structure (Uhl-Bien, Osborn, & Schermherhorn, 2014). Organizations realize that recruiting and training new employees comes at a cost when retaining employees is more cost-effective (Uhl-Bien, Osborn, & Schermherhorn, 2014). Other ways that organizations or the government have included ways to be flexible are the change from the traditional Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm work schedule, FMLA, maternity and paternity leave, sick and vacation pay, etc. (Uhl-Bien, Osborn, & Schermherhorn, 2014). These changes in how organizations treat employees is becoming the best way to keep employees.

When I was younger, I remember my grandparents talking about how the latest generation changes organizations or careers rather than spend thirty to forty years at the same place. I remember mentioning that organizations must have treated them better because we tend to change careers or workplace because of economic opportunities such as a raise that we would not have received if we remained with the organization, benefits that were better than the present workplace, etc. I have noticed that workplaces are offering appealing packages. For example, I am a state Homecare Worker (caretaker for those who wish to remain in their homes). We received a pay bump for having to work during the Coronavirus time period (some were quitting out of fear).
