207: Flexible Work and Job Sharing Strategies – Marathon Kids

Host Kariesha Martinez interviews Cami Hawkins, CEO of Austin-based non-profit, Marathon Kids, to talk about her experience creating a flexible workspace and how other organizations can implement one for their employees. 

Cami discusses:

  • Job share: For increased flexibility, Cami has hired people on a job share basis which entails hiring two people to do one job, each working 20 hours a week.
  • How she adapted during COVID: Marathon Kids already offered a flexible work culture, but she has made it even more flexible by letting people take off during the day to help their kids with school.

Marathon Kids engages kids in a positive, simple, goal-driven program that challenges them to run the equivalent of up to four marathons over the course of a season or school year. It allows kids of all abilities to unlock their potential, one mile at a time.
