About the company:

Werk is leading the flexibility movement - revolutionizing the workplace in order to meet the needs of modern society through flexibility. Research shows of the 30% of women who drop out of the workforce after having a child, 70% would have stayed had they had access to flexibility. But a lack of flexibility impacts all employees: women need it, millennials expect it, and all employees value it. Werk profoundly believes that flexibility should exist in some form for every job, and every employee.

Today, no one knows what flexibility means, and without a standard framework for flexibility, companies cannot strategically implement it or measure its success. Werk has created a standard definition for flexibility and a proprietary framework of flexibility: the Flexiverse™. The Flexiverse™ allows companies to apply a consistent approach to identifying opportunities for flexibility, implementing it and measuring its success. Werk’s standardized definition and Flexiverse™ framework are the foundation for all of Werk’s products including our job marketplace and our FlexCert™ training series.  

Werk launched with an MVP in June 2016, raised a $1M Pre-seed round in December 2016 and released a beta product in February 2017. Werk recently raised $2.8M in Seed funding, led by Rethink Impact. Werk was founded by Anna Auerbach and Annie Dean. Read about Werk in The New York Times, Bustle, and Forbes. Follow along @werk.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
