With all the chatter around health care reform, you may have missed (like I did) last week’s White House forum on workplace flexibility.

I’m sorry I missed it, since according to the WH blog, the event brought together “businesses (large and small), employees, advocates, labor leaders and experts spent the afternoon discussing why workplace flexibility matters – and trading information about options that are working in the workplace, such as telecommuting, flextime, job sharing, helping with childcare and eldercare, and predictable scheduling.”

Even the president and first lady shared their own stories of trying to maintain work-life balance as they raise their two daughters. Thankfully, in this information age, you can always get a front-row seat for events like this, even if not in real-time.

These links are videos of the opening and closing sessions of the forum. Check them out and then share your tales of fighting for work-life balance at your company and in your own life.
