The Business case for Flexible Work:

He is considered one of Australia's leading employment and workplace experts, working closely with decision-makers across sectors on HR, management and economic issues. On workplaces, his focus tends to be on inclusive management, diversity, remuneration and organisational structuring.

Jo Alilovic - Employment Lawyer

Jo is an employment lawyer, business owner of 3D HR Legal, employer of flexible workers and mother of three. As an employment lawyer, Jo works with employers to support them with all manner of issues affecting the relationships between employers and employees. Her work includes advising employers about their obligations regarding conditions of employment, creating employment contracts and policies, and providing representation in the event of legal claims. 

Jo previously worked with a large corporate law firm in Perth before establishing her own firm. In addition to her law and commerce degrees she also has a Masters degree in Human Resources and Industrial Relations. Sick of seeing gifted women leave careers to take alternative roles as a way to find flexibility, and of hearing from employers who wanted to make positive changes but didn’t know how, Jo knew there was a need for an increase in information sharing. One of her ways to achieve this was joining with Lucy Dickens to create The Juggle podcast.

Jo brings all of her experiences together as a lawyer, business owner and mother to promote and speak up for women and employers doing things differently – to encourage and enable more women to have the careers they deserve with the flexibility they desire.

Lucy Dickens - The Juggle podcast

Lucy is the co-host of The Juggle podcast, a podcast that provides strategies and advice to support professional women manage the competing demands of a career and family. In her own career she works flexibly as a lawyer for Perth firm Birman & Ride.

Saddened by the realisation that women were not being supported through their return to work after maternity leave, Lucy set out to do two things. First, to create a community of like-minded women juggling career and family who could band together support each other; and second, to share examples of women and employers who were making it work to prove to that a shift in focus from what we can get out of people to what we can give them is not only a fulfilling way to conduct business, it is a profitable way as well. 

Lucy is passionate about helping working mothers take charge of and manage their career and personal life in such a way that enables them to live life according to their priorities, not someone else's. She is an advocate for flexible working, conscious leadership and work life integration as mechanisms through which employers can help their employees to live their best lives.
