LiveOps Joins 1 Million for Work Flexibility to Support and Promote the Need for Flexible Work Opportunities for Everyone

Company Backs Initiative to Create Change in the Workplace



"LiveOps is a pioneer in providing flexible work opportunities, and we are thrilled to partner with 1 Million for Work Flexibility," Vasili Triant, CEO of LiveOps.

    REDWOOD CITY, CA, April 14, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- LiveOps, the global leader in cloud contact center and customer service solutions, is pleased to announce it has joined 1 Million for Work Flexibility, the first national initiative creating a collective voice in support of work flexibility. 1 Million for Work Flexibility is supported by a diverse coalition of companies, nonprofits and business leaders who understand that work flexibility benefits everyone. LiveOps has been "bringing work home" for more than 14 years through its cloud-enabled contact center platform and independent, work-from-home agent community of more than 20,000 people across the country.

"LiveOps is a pioneer in providing flexible work opportunities, and we are thrilled to partner with 1 Million for Work Flexibility to increase awareness of the very real need for more work options," said Vasili Triant, CEO of LiveOps. "Our agents tell us that the freedom gained by working from home has improved their lives in numerous ways, including better quality of life and work balance. We are strong proponents of workplace flexibility and we look forward to working with 1 Million for Work Flexibility to help propel this vision to change the 'standard' workplace."

1 Million for Work Flexibility is dedicated to bringing the benefits of work flexibility to more companies and people. Work flexibility is an over-arching term for options in the workplace that give organizations and their staff the freedom to better decide when, where and how work will get done. For example, flexible and alternative schedules, remote work opportunities and even freelance contracts are all examples of work flexibility options. Work flexibility can be implemented in smaller ways (such as occasional telecommuting or having an alternative schedule where you come in and leave an hour earlier to avoid traffic) or in bigger ways (such as telecommuting all of the time or having a completely flexible schedule).

"By partnering with organizations like LiveOps that have helped lead the way on flexible workplaces, we are creating a collective national voice that can magnify why work flexibility benefits our lives, our businesses and our communities," said Sara Sutton Fell, founder of 1 Million for Work Flexibility. "1 Million for Work Flexibility believes it is critical to engage with not just individuals who want and need work flexibility, but also employers and organizations, who can help create change. Working together, we can help make work flexibility become the standard in the 21st century workplace."

Through partnerships and working directly with employees and employers, 1 Million for Work Flexibility aims to increase support for flexible workplaces through the following goals:

- Inspire - Inspire 1 million people to join in creating a voice that can be really heard.
- Educate - Share important information on news and trends related with work flexibility through newsletters, webinars, blog and social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
- Lead - Highlight real-life ways to help people achieve more work flexibility in their lives.
- Mobilize - Make it easier to get involved in local and national events, legislation, petitions and other efforts supporting the advancement of flexible work options.
- Support - Work with leading experts and organizations in both the public and private sectors to help move forward complementary initiatives.
